My experience w/ NCLEX 265 questions

banana:) banana:) (New) New

Hello! I just want to tell my horrific NCLEX-RN experience and hope you all will have a better experience than what I had to go through. I just recently took the NCLEX and had 265 questions. I studied for a solid 2 weeks and just really wanted to be over with this test. I used Saunders, Kaplan, and the NCBSN website. The test was always on the back of my mind and I couldn't enjoy anything. I've heard of all the stories and myths of those that got 75 questions and those that got 265 and it was just horrifying. The test was hard. I had a lot of SATA (select all of the above), 1 calculation, a few meds I've never heard of, and tons and tons of priority questions. Those were so hard. I found that all the answer choices could be right. I couldn't eliminate or tell the difference between the choices anymore. I wanted to be done and get out of there. Definitely not what I had expected. I was hoping to have my screen shut off at 75 but it kept going and going and so was my faith. I started to get anxious again and my head began to hurt. I felt like I couldn't even understand the questions I was reading anymore. It was so bad. I felt so horrible and dumb and I started guessing on almost every single questions toward the end, which was not a smart thing to do and I would not recommend anyone to do that. I was hoping my screen would shut off soon but it did not. By the time I know it, I was already almost 6 hours in and finished at 265 with about 20 minutes left. I wanted to cry. I know deep down in my gut that i failed. I didn't know what to think anymore. All my friends and classmates got finished at 75 or less than 100. I was mortified. Needless to say, they all passed. I, however, did not.

The following day, all my friends that pass had their names on the licensing board website. Mine was not there, not even the next day. I couldn't access my quick results because I had to wait 48 hours. I found out using the pearsonvue trick that have just been recently undated. Basically, you have to log-in on pearsonvue and re-register. You have to go through the credit card information and submit it in. If they accept your payment, you failed. If they don't and you get a pop-up that say you have recently scheduled your exam and it won't let you pay, then you passed.I was so sad and felt so defeated. I couldn't eat or sleep. It was such a horrible feeling that I never want to go through again. I kept tearing up every time I think about it and felt so disappointed in myself. My friends were very supportive and it helped me get through this.

I will be retaking this test in 45 days and I am just hoping for the best. I felt that I could've done so much better if I have not freaked my self out when I kept getting questions. My nerves got the best of me and I just hope that this does not happen to anyone. Try your best and if you get more than 75 questions, you are still in the game. Don't panic like I did. There are those that fail at 265 but also many that passes. You can do it. I, for once, am trying again and wishing for the best! GOOD LUCK TO ALL. If you fail, it is not the worst thing that can happen to you.We got through nursing school, we can definitely get through this test. Keep your chins up and it will all work out in the end.

Im so sorry you did not pass NCLEX, i took my exam yesterday, and i feel like i failed. I didn't really get a lot of SATA but i did get a lot of priority questions, 1 EKG, a few meds 1 drag and drop. I honestly felt defeated! i have to wait till tomorrow to try the quick results. However i did try the NEW PVT trick and got the "good pop up" I'm not sure if it works. Did you get the something when you tried the trick?

Congratulations! You passed! If you get the good pop-up you passed! I'm sure it works because my friend had the good pop-up and passed, while I didn't and failed. Now you can relax!
