Did anyone fail without having any math questions?

Just curious.....I've heard that the math calculation questions are usually supposed to be considered a lower level question, therefore, alot of people think they may have done well if they did not receive any math questions. So, I was just curious to know if anyone took the test and didn't get any math questions but failed?


Apr 22, '07Quote from nurse2bmomi didnt have math questions when i took the test the first time and still failed....so it doesnt really matter...what i noticed during the test is that when i know that i am doing well with the questions, the select all that apply pops up....i dunno, it maybe just me....Just curious.....I've heard that the math calculation questions are usually supposed to be considered a lower level question, therefore, alot of people think they may have done well if they did not receive any math questions.

Apr 22, '07i know some of friends who failed and they didn't even have a math calc question. i guess, it doesn't really matter...math problems don't determine your fate in passing the test.
but ahi sure hope that i don't get one on my test. ;) 
Apr 22, '07i got two: pediatics calulations. mg/kg/day and a heparin drip question. i got them both correct. but dayam i hate math! i'm still waiting for my results.


Apr 22, '07I remember having one drug calculation, I know for sure my answer was wrong coz I freaked out when I saw the numbers...so I just guessed the answer. It was after the exam that I was able to compute the answer(it took me so long during the exam to answer the math question that I was able to memorize the question for several days). I passed though.

Apr 23, '07I got 1 pedi calculation i got it wrong ( i checked the answer again when i got home) but i passed nclex


Apr 23, '07You'll like this: I had two dosage calc questions at the very end of the test. By that time I had forgotten that there was a calculator that you could use on screen. So I did them by hand. I couldn't figure out why they were giving me math problems that didn't have nice round numbers when I had to figure them out by hand!
Doh!
