Input on Kaplan Scores & NCLEX PLZ!

Posted

Hi guys, my test is on Wednesday in NYC and I was wondering if anyone had similar scores and passed the 1st try? I'm feeling pretty crappy right now - just finished QT #7. One minute I feel ready, the next I feel awful! Agh! I feel like what I'm reviewing is helping me somewhat - but, still during the QT's there's a lot of stuff I don't recognize. :(

My ATI scores on the assessment's are usually from the mid-60's to upper 70's, just took the comprehensive and got an 80% and I'm going to take the ATI Predictor tomorrow.

It doesn't help that all of my friends have been getting like 30-40-50 SATA's and Ordering Procedure questions.

Diagnostic: 64

Readiness: 67 (In the Live Classroom course we took it 4 days after the Diagnostic).

QT 1: 56

QT 2: 65

QT 3: 51

QT 4: 62

QT 5: 64

QT 6: 68

QT 7: 65

Any input would be greatly appreciated!!! Having a panic attack over here. :( x 100.

Thank you.

Kaplan said to aim for 60 then ull surely 99.9999% pass. I'm sure u know that ur scores look really good. It doesn't suprise me if you pass. Good luck and be confident.

Omg, really? I really hope so...I'm not too thrilled with my scores. :(

The anxiety is killing me, as I'm sure it did everyone else. But.. ahh... Were your scores similar and you passed the NCLEX buspar?

Ok my Kaplan scores were averaging around the 60s range.

I did about 600 of the qbank questions read the Kaplan ebook.

I was so scared! I even was going to reschedule my Nclex but it was past the 24 hour notice

We'll I took the test Friday August 22nd. Got my results yesterday that I passed!!!!

Ok so just my opinion but I kinda thought the Kaplan qbank questions were harder then the Nclex questions I'm not saying the Nclex was easy but I do believe that Kaplan prepared me for it.

Ok, thank you so much!!! It helps to hear that! CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!! :yes:

Did you get a lot of SATA and ordering procedures? My friends who have passed say to review my weaknesses the day before but that's like everything! My other friends say go to the beach... but I cannot, Lol.

I actually didn't get too many SATA I got 86 questions and maybe only got like 4. Oh my gosh I know what you mean I had a lot of weaknesses too but Kaplan said it's actually a myth that if the Nclex sees your weak it throw out more of those questions.

Wow, thats great! Thank you... your responses are helping with the anxiety/emotional roller coaster.

I took kaplan live as well and my scores were similar to yours..the more i did the better my score got. Unfortunately i cant tell you if its helpful because i dont get my results until tomorrow. Im praying that my score on kaplan reflects how i did on the nclex considering i only had 90 something questions. I was freaking out bc i didn't get the good pop up and then i heard that the trick was changed and the pop up comes up after you enter you CC info. Im not a big gambler so i cant take the chance with $200. Im sure youll do fine. GOOD LUCK! !

I heard! Like way to go universe, all these years people have been doing it, and days before you and I test - they change the PVT, lol.

Well, let us know how it went, 90 questions sounds promising!!! :) Giving you an early Congrats! :)

What did you do the day before the exam? Debating whether I should keep reviewing or just work on bringing down anxiety.

Thank you! I definitely will keep you posted.. I just read over all my notes/rationales that i wrote from all the kaplan questions. .i did the whole qbank and the 4 sample test..hope this helps.my plan was just to relax and do nothing but i couldn't. .lol

Good luck and just breathe! !!!

You will do Great!! Your ATI scores are just like mine were. I finished the exit ATI with 83% and passed the NCLEX in 75 questions. You should be getting excited and ready to celebrate!!

Thank you guys!!! You're really making me feel a lot better!!! I've been text bombing my class mates but it's nice to hear other people's experiences as well. Thank you and Congrats!!! :)

I had similar kaplan scores as well and i passed the nclex with 89Q 2 weeks ago :) I had really bad anxiety a week leading up to the exam and I felt that doing questions always eased it. The day before the exam i went to the gym and tried not to study anything, the day of i got there about an hour early and they sat me right away and i just took my time and i walked out of there knowing i passed because i knew i got the last q right :) btw nys bon posted my liscence # on the website 48hr after taking the exam, save your # onquick results. GOOD LUCK AND I HAVE SO MUCH FAITH IN YOU! :)

Honeydew,

My Kaplan scores were almost identical to yours and I passed! Your scores look great!

I got a ton of SATAs, but remember that is everyone's weakness and PV knows it, so don't let it freak you out too much.

Everyone is terrified, everyone has panic attacks, everyone leaves the testing center and the fact that the PVT is gone will make it more difficult while waiting for results, but I hope you can take some comfort in the fact that you are completely and totally normal.

Day before the test-do something relaxing, studying should be done!

Thank you for the positive vibes!!! I was seriously freaking out and to hear what you guys had to say was a huge relief. Seriously, the hardest part of the NCLEX was getting in the right mindset for the exam. I hope I passed!!! I shut off at 75 and I didn't know if I should be happy or not so I just had a mini freak out and raised my hand for the proctor to come over.

Tried the "New" Pearson Vue Trick and got the supposed "good pop-up", not believing anything until Friday though!!!

Oh I am sure you did great! You would know by the difficulty and nature of the questions you were getting whether or not you passed or failed if it shut off at 75 questions. I remember the questions getting harder and harder with many multiple answer questions when mine shut off at 75. Congratulation and good luck with your new career!!

Woohoo! Just did the rapid results, I passed!!!! Thanks for your input before guys!!!
