I just took NCLEX this morning at 8am. Cut off at 75 questions. Got the good pop-up a few hours later, but not convinced that it means anything. Hoping to reply to this post soon with some good news!

All four of my friends had the good popups and they passed. How was your exam? Were there a lot of SATAs, drag and drops?

Like most people, I didn't feel like I was doing too well and I was really shocked when it stopped at 75. At least 1/3 of the questions were SATA. I had some ordering ones too, but no drag and drop.

In June I took NCLEX for the first time and I failed in 99 questions.  I was near passing standard on all areas except 3.  Today I also retook the exam in 75 questions (but felt like it was easier than the last time).  I'm freaking out basically... 
I did the Pearson Vue trick 2.5 hours after and changed the expiration date on my card and it gave me "our records indicate you have recently scheduled this exam".  
The only thing I did differently to study this time was 50-80 uWorld questions a day (lots of prioritization) and the mark klimek audio.  
Can I get a little reassurance or anything before my anxiety actually sends me to the hospital?

I think the only thing that will cure our anxiety is getting our scores honestly. My advice is to just put the exam out of your mind for now. Do something fun to distract yourself. It's impossible to know if you passed or failed until you get your results. You can fail at 75 and you can fail at 275.

I took my NCLEX exam yesterday and it stopped at 75. This is my second time so I did PVT 6hrs later and got the good pop-up. Still wasn’t convinced so I called the BON and they confirmed I passed. Now I don’t have to wait and can actually sleep. I’m sure you passed as well!

Thank you! And please update when you find out. My suggestion is to wait until after the time you finished you exam. That way it’s a full 24 hours. I’m in NJ if it matters.

I'm in California. I'll have to wait for 48 hrs to access the quick results service. My heart will not be able to survive that long lol

I understand. It’s really the longest 48hrs ever lol. I’ll still do quick results just to see it in writing.

I thought California did not participate in the quick results?
