Is there a 5 minute warning before the time runs out on the NCLEX?

Posted

I'm asking because the exam shut off at around question #180 and I wasn't really paying attention to the timer. I'm kind of sure I still had some time left but I'm not too sure. Do they warn u 5 min before the end of the exam??

thank you.

Are you certain that you ran out of time?

There is no warning when the end of test occurs due to CAT determining pass/fail to s statistical significance.

Don't stress. You can't change things now. Go do something nice for yourself.
