3rd time

  1. Just sat my NCLEX for the 3rd time today, thought the questions were a lot harder this time round. Last 2 attempts the exam shut off at 75 questions. After the hard questions I was waiting for it to shut off again today at 75, but it went passed. 85 questions came, and it asked if I wanted to take a break, was dyting for a drink as I had a bad sore throat. Went back in sat down continued and the exam shut off at 95 question, so I am now thinking well at 75 questions I must have been borderline so it continued. So at 95 questions has it deemed me below the passing standard or above? Its now all a waiting game again, which I hate. So fingers crossed hopefully 3rd time Lucky

    Anyone else shut off at 95 and passed or even failed?

    I did not have 95 questions, but I can tell you that people do pass and fail at all numbers of questions. The number of questions does not predict the result.

    Good luck to you. Let us know how it turns out.

    thanks to everyone who wished me weel, unfortunatley I failed again, felt more confident this time round when it did not shut off at 75, was hoping that i had passed, but not to be. As you can imagine I am really upset, that I failed. Need to wait now till I get my full breakdown report to see where I went wrong.

    I'm sorry. I'm sure you will do it the next time. Grieve for a few days, then get back to studying. I wish you the best.
