Hello! Yesterday I took my nclex. I already set my mind that I will be answering 265 questions, that way I won’t lose confidence, will stay calm, won’t panic and won’t feel devastated if it won’t shut down at 75. And yes, I did get 265 questions, took it for 5 hours 40 mins. It was very exhausting. I took 2 breaks, drink water and eat chocolates. 😊

I got SATA but some were those easy type ones like which from list are under airborne precaution. And I don’t think questions like that are under high level question. I also got few computations, who do you see first, priority questions. I think I got all type of questions. 😭

I’m just curious if “exhibit type” & “require follow up” type questions are under high level questions. I got both but a lot of “which statement requires follow up”. My last question actually is about follow up too. I used Hurst for content then Kaplan for practicing questions. Based on my understanding from Kaplan’s CAT explanation, if your last question is a high level question, whether you answer it right or wrong, you pass. 

Anyone of you got a lot of require follow up questions too? Thanks!

There's really no way to really tell if you passed based on what question you got last. And focusing on that is just going to stress you out....more than you already are if that's possible! ;) You learned the content in nursing school, you graduated so you knew it, and you studied what sounds like thoroughly. Then, you took the NCLEX. Now, there is nothing else you can do! All you can do is wait for your results. So, now is the time to take a break. Do some things for yourself. Enjoy yourself. Between nursing school and studying for the NCLEX, you probably haven't done much of either of those things! Once you get the results, you will be starting your career in nursing and be busy again! So, as hard as it may sound, go do something fun, relaxing, and that might take your mind off the test! 

To answer your original question - even though I think it is honestly pointless what question you ended on - maybe this will help: https://study.com/academy/popular/what-are-considered-higher-level-questions-on-the-nclex.html

Hello! Thank you for your response! I used Kaplan and based on their explanation about CAT, if you answered 265 questions the level of the last question you got matters. Cause it’s the one which will determine if you passed or failed. If it’s above the level of competency, you passed, whether you answered it wrong or right. Which makes sense in my opinion. Cause the next question you’re getting are based on whether you answered the last question right or wrong. That’s why I’m just curious. 🙂
