Do I feel stupid or what

  1. I just took my LPN NCLEX test yesteday 11-19-02. I made good grades in school. I have studied almost every night for the last 2 months for this test. I even bought a Saunders review book to help me. Well on the test it all looked greek. I knew some of them but most of them didn't make any sense. When it turned off at 85 I prayed for more questions just to give me a chance. I know the other 3 studends I tested with also said the same thing. Is this normal????????????

    Yes, it's normal to feel like you didn't do well on NCLEX.

    Remember, the test shuts off when you are getting about 50% correct. We are not accustomed to scoring 50% on our tests in school.

    Good luck to you!!

    I felt the same way, In fact I was 100% positive that I had failed. I left in tears after I took the NCLEX RN but I did pass and so will you. Nursula is right, the test is designed to have you miss 50% of the questions. Let us know how you do.

    Spitfire, when I walked out of the testing center I actually thought I had missed every single question. I then spent the next two days totally depressed. The test cut off at 75 on me and all my friends told me that was a good sign, but I couldn't believe them. I'm sure you did great.

    I think your feelings are normal, we all left our state boards feeling like our heads were spinning and couldn't remember a single question but passed. Good luck to you.

    I challenged the LPN NCLEX a few months before taking my RN boards. I walked outta there like a zombie after 85 questions, certain that I flunked!

    ...but i passed....

    and it was a good prep for the RN boards, too.
