I have read in several places that if you get the last question wrong that you fail the NCLEX, is this true? I took it today and it shut off at 75 question and I am certain that I answered the last question wrong. I am FREAKING OUT!

Thanks for the words of encouragement. I am trying to hold it together! I mean, I had prioritization, the 'who would you see first', some meds, some delegation. I had one calculation question, the last one, and it was messed up. I got it wrong. argghhh!

I wouldn't worry, I have a friend that took hers and she knew for sure she failed. She also got 75 questions and the last question was a question over a disease she had never even heard of and she knew she got it wrong, but the computer shut off right after that question. Long story short she passed. just remember the computer isn't just grading you on your last question, you could have already proved yourself "safe" before it even got to that question. I just took my Boards yesterday and also got 75. I'm still waiting for my results. What in the heck takes them so long to post the results. The longer I wait the more I think I failed. AHHHHHHH!

I don't know what takes them so long to post the scores. This is pure torture! I tried to go to sleep because I have been working on four hours a sleep a night for the past three nights due to studying! The crazy thing is I CAN'T SLEEP! Goodluck Mo07, I'm sure you will be posting that you passed tomorrow!!

Remember that 15 of your questions don't count--they are questions that the test is "testing" to decide if they belong in the test bank. So you can get 15 of them wrong with no repercussions--too bad they aren't labeled.
