Failed my Nclex at 75 questions.

Published

Exam started me off with a select all that apply and got a couple in a row and one at 75. Shut off at 75, got the bad pop up does this mean failure.

I recently failed 3 days ago. I did the PVT a few hours after I finished my exam, 75 questions. Got the bad pop up and sure enough I knew I didn't pass. Don't lose hope though. Just wait until you get your results.

Unfortunately you more than likely failed. I would say that 99% of those that get the "Bad popup" and pass either didn't really know what the bad popup was and never actually got the bad popup, didn't do the "trick" correctly (i.e. not actually submitting the payment), or 1% truly got the bad popup and passed. The trick is just that, a trick. It is the exploitation of the company's billing software so theoretically you could be an exception. However, if you look through this site 99% of those who have gotten the bad popup have failed and 99% of those who have gotten the good one have passed. Basically what I am saying is that there are always going to be those that were an exception, but the overwhelming majority of people see the same results. I too got the bad popup when I failed and I got the good popup when I passed.

Now, the most important thing to do here is take sometime to deal with the fact that you didn't pass and then pick yourself back up and get back to reviewing! You made it through nursing school so you CAN pass the NCLEX and I know you can!! Take your time, relax, and kill it this next time! Good Luck!!

UWorld, LaCharity, and Kaplan. I only use Capital One for the question bank and readiness test though. I did not like their rationales because they were very vague and at times didn't even make sense especially when compared to UWorld's.
