    I took the NCLEX-PN test last thursday (May 5th) and i'm wondering if i passed or failed too. i stopped at 205 and had a lot of different questions, i don't know if they were actually hard or not but i do know i had different questions. The only repeats i seemed to have were Priority questions like "if you receive 4 patients and have one private room left, which one of these patients would you put in that private room" type questions. I had A LOT of those questions. NOw my own question is since i had that many questions about priortization, does that mean i wasn't at the passing standard and they were repeating it to me to help me reach that passing level? I'm confused, someone help me. I'm sh*ting bricks waiting for the results to come in.

    i had those exact type question..ex. an alzheimer's pt vs. other pt's. i had about 3 of them until they quit asking me. plz let us know how you did. you should be able to get your results by now, if your testing center gives you that option. i had to wait 48 hours until i could go online and pay 7.95 to get my early "unofficial" results. Then i went to the BON site and did an online inquiry the next day and they had issued me a license. Good luck.

    Read the following, it will help you feel a little better after taking your test. hopefully...

    The NCLEX exams are administered using Computerized Adaptive Testing - CAT. There is a six hour limit for NCLEX-RN and a five hour time limit for NCLEX-PN which includes time for the computer tutorial and breaks.

    Using this method (CAT) each exam is unique and the questions are retrieved from a database as the exam progresses. The computer measures the ability of the candidate using the answers provided previously and changes the difficulty and topic of the new questions accordingly - if you answer correctly the computer will select harder questions and if you are answer incorrectly it will choose easier questions. The software estimates your ability every time you provide the answer to a question and with each new answer you provide the estimate of your ability gets more precise.

    The exam software selects questions that it believes you will have a close to 50% chance of answering correctly - not too hard or too easy for the ability it believes you have. This is done so that a well prepared candidate will be asked more difficult questions thus having a good chance of passing the exam by answering the minimum number of questions while less prepared candidates are not forced to guess the answers to questions too difficult for them. The expected number of correct answers is half the total number of questions you are presented with because of the adaptive nature of the test.

    After you answer the minimum number of questions for the exam the software will analyze your performance and it may shut-down the computer. This means that you either passed or failed the exam. The computer will shut-down only when the program running the test has determined with 95% certainty that your ability is either above or below the passing standard.

    The only way to get additional questions is if you are very close to the passing score - either 2.5% above or 2.5% below it. If this is the case you should not worry about failing but instead should concentrate on answering correctly the next set of questions. You must understand that you are very close to passing the exam if you answer most questions correctly from this point on. You must answer the maximum number of questions on the exam only if at the end of each set of questions you are within the 2.5% above or below the passing score. The time you spend on each question is not an important factor with regard to passing but you should answer the required number of questions in the allotted time.

    If you are required to answer the maximum number of questions and the computer still isn't 95% sure you can pass, the 95% confidence requirement is dropped. If at this point you have a score higher than the minimum required you pass the exam otherwise you fail. If you run out of time and did not answer the minimum number of questions required you fail automatically. If you run out of time but you answered the minimum number of questions required and for the last 60 questions your score was never below the passing standard you pass otherwise you fail the exam. This does not mean that you have to answer the last 60 questions correctly but only that at any point during the last 60 questions your score was above the minimum required to pass the exam. You can think about it this way: for each correct answer add one to your score while for each incorrect answer subtract one. Adding your scores one at a time for each question answered should never result in a negative score in order for you to pass if you run out of time but you have answered the minimum number of questions required.

    I passed my test it stopped on 85. It was not hard it was more time consuming. If you went to class everyday and passed your tests it should be a breeze.
