What exactly are you asking? The nclex shutting off at a particular question number doesn't indicate a pass or fail. You'll have to wait for the quick result. Best of luck!

High probability of passing if you did very well in school. High probability of failing if you barely passed nursing school. 75 questions is the minimum which means you did very well and the computer determined you were competent at 76 questions or you did very poorly and the computer determined despite giving you more questions you would not pass. It is extremely unlikely that an A student would fail at 75 questions unless they were on major pain meds or took Nyquil prior to the test.
