My 265th NCLEX-RN question was a SATA

Posted

My 265th NCLEX-RN question was a select all that apply. I'm in dire need of help - good, bad?

I once heard if u answer the last question (265) right. U pass. If it's wrong. U fail. Idk how much of that is true. Try the Pearson vue trick!

Format of the last question, whether it's #75, #265, or something in between is totally irrelevant re:whether you pass or not as is whether you answer that particular question correctly or not.

That's true, but more speficially - If the last question is above the passing line they pass, whether or not they get it right. If it's below the pass line, they fail no matter if they answer correctly or not.

The OP hasn't indicated whether the PVT has been done recently. However from my understanding, when the "last question" rule is run, all that matters is if the question asked is above passing standard or not, regardless of correct answer. The fact that it's a SATA suggests that it might have been at least near passing standard... but truly those types of questions can be created for any level of question.

OP: Search for how to do the PVT and let us know what happened. No matter what happens, do not actually pay for a 2nd attempt at the NCLEX. If need be, you can do that later. If you see a page where you actually can enter credit card information, that's the undesirable result.
