Anyone fail with 75 ?'s

Posted

I know everyone says what number of ?'s doesn't indicate whether or not one passed or failed, but it seems like everyone on here that had 75 ?'s passed. So, has anyone failed with 75 ?'s. (I am in the waiting for results anxiety mode.)

Yes there have been people posting on the site that failed with 75.

There is a poll on that section of the board that was 85% pass rate last I checked. There are no guarantees but fwiw for my LPN and RN I ended with the minimum and while the exams were challenging I just knew I passed because I got the min. Hang in there!

Getting the minimum number of questions never determines if one passes or does not pass. That is not how they determine if one passes.

You will see people passing with both the lowest number of questions as well as the highest and everything in between. Same goes for not passing the exam.

While it might not determine who passes or doesn't there can't be any disputing that it is a great sign most times. The reason I was sure I passed with the minimum for both my LPN and RN was because I always test well, was prepared and would bet my life that I didn't miss so many that they wouldn't have given me more questions to try. Why isn't it cool to say that ok if you got the minimum you probably did great? as a worse case scenario, in the few cases where the the person didn't pass, at least they were spared for a couple of days of stress.

Jules,

Last I checked, the national average for passing NCLEX-RN was 85%. That means that just finishing the test gives you the same odds at passing than does finishing at 75 questions.

I would disagree with that logic :) but this is what I was referring to:

https://allnurses.com/forums/f118/75-questions-nclex-pass-fail-159484.html

an informal survey of over 1200 people that answered they ended with 75 questions and as reported 85% of them passed.
