"GRAY SCREEN," does it mean you have failed????

  1. I took my second NCLEX today and it was horrible. So many medications, prioritizations and SATAs. I had about 215 questions (somewhere around there, I don't quite remember...too anxious to remember). Anyway, when the computer stopped, it turned 'GRAY." I heard that if it turns gray, that means you have "FAILED." Can anyone comfirm this??? I am pretty scared right now. I don't want to take again!!!

    Im pretty sure everyone who takes it gets a gray screen when the computer determines that you are done with the test and it is over. It has nothing to do with pass or fail. Think positive!!!

    There was a thread that mentioned about the gray screen, and every failed exam, the computer would turn gray on her/him. Until the one time when her screen turned blue, and it turns out that she passed..Maybe you passed and your computer was gray?

    Well crap. I took the NCLEX in Dec and failed and yes I do remember a gray screen but I thought that a few of my friends had said they had gray screens too (which is why I posted what I said earlier) and they passed but now Im not so sure. Once you said blue, it rang a bell that maybe they had blue screens. I mean how crazy would that be if you could tell by what color screen you got? Since people wait in agony (including me last time) awaiting their results they could know right away from screen color? It just seems very non nclex to do something like that because its such a mind game. Oh great, now something else to think about before my re test date! Ahh! Let me know what your results are. Sending positive vibes your way!!

    It seems to me that a couple of days ago a person said they passed and their screen had turned grey. My last three EC tests at Pearson Vue, the screen turned blue and I passed, so I had thought that it was "blue, you pass". We need some more input on this phenomenon.
