Took NCLEX yesterday, I feel I failed

  1. The computer shut off at 85 questions. I got hard questions and easy questions. There were some I just knew I got wrong and they were some of the easy ones. I am just sick to my stomach and just in tears and I dont find out until tomorrow. Can you fail at 85 questions? I studied a lot. I got really nervous toward the end and started breathing really heavy and my heart was racing. How many questions did you get? And did you pass? Thanks in advance

    I got over 140 questions, I felt like I guessed on over half of it, and as the test went on, the more I felt like I DIDN'T know and when it started going past 75 I got real nervous! I got my results 2 days later and I passed! Hang in there... waiting afterwards is the hardest part! Good luck and let us know your results!!!

    The whole feeling of waiting is dreadful. I'm sure you did great. Like you said you studied a lot. I took NCLEX-RN in May. Computer stopped at 75 questions. I passed. Hang in there okay?
    Keep us posted!

    The computer shut down for me at around 110, and I passed. A friend of mine took it a week later, it shut down for her at 75, and she failed. The number of questions really do not matter. The waiting is very difficult, and we all know how you feel. Try to hang in there, we are all pulling for you!

    It has been more than six years. I am certain the OP has recovered by now.

    It has been over 6 years now since taken my boards, and yes thank goodness it is a very distant memory, or nightmare lol. And some day you will be able to say the same. Good Luck!
