My last 2 NCLEX questions were identical & then it shut off at 75...



  1. The question was a "select all that apply". It was the exact same question for 74 and 75 except the options were rearraged. (I ended up changing my answer for question number 75 and then it shut off!) Is that a big sign that I flunked?

    I remembered many of the questions and looked them up. I can think of 36 that I got right and remember about 15 that I looked up and got wrong. I'm so upset. But what do you think about questoin 74 and 75 being identical?

    Dont you just love questions like that, the ones that make you second guess yourself?? You could try the "trick" everyone keeps writing about....I have no idea if it works because Saturday will be my first time taking this lovely exam! Good Luck, Keep praying, thats what I intend to do bc I know I WILL be a nervous wreck.

    Moved to the NCLEX forum

    Sometimes you think they are identical when really there is a slight alteration in the question and what they are looking for

    Good luck

    I think you passed it.

    ya, if you ended at 75 on SATA questions, from what I've heard, chances are you passed it, because the SATA questions are supposed to be higher level questions.

    I could be wrong, but again, thats what I've heard. Let us know!

    i failed my nclex and all i had was sata questions , ! it was horrible, and i failed on 76 questions, and the pearson vue trick worked, it got me all the way to the cc page, and i just found out today that i failed. im so upset, i also thought sata questions were higher level, but not anymore.

    Two of my SATA questions were identical too. Mine shut off at 75 and I passed. It makes no difference whether you answered those questions right or wrong and I wouldn't stress yourself out by lookin up the answers to the questions. The NCLEX is the type of exam where you will feel bad when you leave no matter what as it is made so that both those that pass and those who fail miss about 50% of the questions. The only difference is that those who pass stayed above the level of passing whereas those who failed did not.

    SATA are just another format of questions, not always necessarily high level.

    I also ended my last question with a SATA. Question 78. I was 100% sure I got it right too. Thought I passed the exam for sure because I got 2 calculations, 7 SATA, and one drag and drop. Unfortunately failed tho. Good luck!
