Hi everyone! Well, I just took the nclex for the second time yesterday, and I'm soo sure I failed again. The first time I failed at 75 questions. Then I read the whole Saunders book, and took it again yesterday, and it shut off somewhere in the 80s. When I got home I looked up all the questions I could remember, and got them all wrong except one. I'm convinced that I couldn't have passed now, because if I got all those wrong and it stopped so early, I couldn't have passed. I really don't understand how I could have studied for months and read the whole Saunders book and still not make at least a little bit of improvement. This makes me feel that even if I study and take it again, I will never improve enough to pass. I am so depressed and I don't know what to do.

Having just done through the agonizing wait a few days ago, I know this is hard, but I must say it anyway - don't borrow trouble. The odds are in your favor that you passed this time. Try and remember EVERYONE feels like a$$ after testing, everyone goes and looks up questions they were unsure on and discovers they answered wrong, and everyone is just SURE they failed. Take your mind of it, excercise and let us know when you get the news.

chin up. almost everybody who gotout of the nclex room will say they think they failed or they feel they didnt do well. what i suggest is please stop checking the answers. Altho the books gives you vital information, it will give you more stress and anxiety as well. the negative effects outweighs the positive. Pls enjoy the wait. go out. the result is now under process and we cannotchange it anymore. it is better to relax, the test is over. wouldit be nice that you spent time smiling than worrying? easier said than done, but it will surely give you a positive attitude in accepting whatever the result was. Best of luck and hope you pass.:)
