What do you think?

  1. Hello,

    I took the NCLEX-RN test on Thursday and I was so suprised because it took several hours and stopped after 247-250 questions, I think.

    According to this website, the number of test questions doesn't matter for pass or fail but I've never heard about the test stopping at 250 questions. What do you think?

    Is it a good sign that the last question was a multiple response question? Also, they asked me a lot of priority questions.

    This is the last chance to take the test for a while, because my 2nd baby is coming in 2weeks.

    CA does'nt give us a quick result...

    Please share your insight.

    The test can stop at any number of questions. What determines pass/fail is the level of difficulty you managed to achieve. Priority question are sometimes considered a good sign, since they can be quite difficult. If you are US-educated, the odds are in your favour. Good luck!

    Good luck with your results and let us know how you did. I'm not from CA, but from what I've seen people post, I think the average time for CA is 10 days. Some people can get them as early as 2 days, or as long as a month. Hopefully you get your results soon.

    I can't wait anymore!
    going crazy...
    Does some one who took NCLEX on last Turseday and got result already in CA ?
    Does someone pass/fail around 250 question?

    I read some thread [If you get math question, it is a bad sign] and [If they asked you same type questions, it is a bad sign]..
    Is it true?

    My test was
    Most of them are priority and triage questions.
    2 Math
    8~10 Meds
    3 multiple questions..

    I got Kaplan 80% and I had good feeling before I took it..
    Now I feel so bad........ :x

    The number of questions you got, which was 250 DOES NOT determine pass/fail. The types of questions also do not really determine pass/fail. I know...it's torture waiting for results, but I'm wishing you all the best!
