What if you run out of time???

  1. i just took nclex yesterday and just don't know what to think!!! here i am reading out how the computer turned off on people, while others took the whole 265 questions. but in my case... i ran out of time!! does anyone know if that's a good or bad sign? i know that in a case like this, they'll look at the last 60 questions, but i don't even recall if i was sane and focused enough to get through with those 60! i don't know how many questions i reached, i know that it was more than 160 and less than 200. i don't even know how i did on the last question because i was so mentally drained even though they were allowing me to take my time to answer it. now i'm killing myself with this wait! what should i think? what should i expect???!! please pray for me 'coz i can't afford to lose the job that i have lined up for me!! otherwise, i don't know if i'll have to move back home!!!!

    This is the first time that I ever heard of someone actually running out of time.
    Guess you are just going to have to wait....................Sorry that I can't offer any other advice to you..........

    Good luck................

    I took the pn board today and shut off at the min 85 and I am still a nervous wreck.
