Many people have passed NCLEX with minimum or maximum numbers as well as in between. Yes I think it is better to think the worst so if you go more than 85 it isn't a great shock to the system and you panic.

This what you do, walk in there prepared to do 205 or 265 questions. Prepare to test 5 or 6 hours. Yes, plan your day like you will be there answering the full amount of questions. Prepare yourself by practicing many Nclex questions before your exam. If you stop at 75 or 85 okay cool, that's not what you expected but hey you finished eariler, expected to give them all you got because you are ready for whatever it is that they throw at you. Stay confident and stay in faith if you're stilling answering questions that means you're still in the game, you're doing good. Try not to worry about all that stuff, about when does the test cut at, how many hours you're there, who's done before you, what number you're on, Don't think about all that just focus and think positive. Blessings to you!

When you are doing the test, just keep answering questions to the best of your ability. You pass if you pass at the maximum number of questions just the same as if you pass at the minimum number of questions.

I just passed my NCLEX with 126 questions. I got lots of medications, SATAs, 2 audio questions, 2 computation questions and lots of prioritization questions. The number of questions that you had during the exam doesn't determine your chances of failing/passing... I hope that this one helps.

I had 98 questions and got the good pop up. I hope I passed! Your heart sinks when it turns to question 76, but you get through it. My friend took it with me and she got all 265 and got the good pop up. We are in California so we have to wait to get our results. If the PVT is true then we both passed! Pray for us please and good luck to you!
