Passed NCLEX-RN with 265 Questions? - page 2

Hi! I just completed the NCLEX-RN today! I had the dreaded 265 questions... not sure if it was randomized or if I was on the verge of passing or failing the entire time. SCARY! I have a few... Read More

    I did the quick results yesterday(it works on weekends!) and I PASSED!!!! Thank God! The good pop-up did seem accurate for me...although I could barely believe it after 265 questions!
    Congratulations I failed with 265

    I am living proof that an NCLEX candidate can pass with 265 questions. I took my test this Tuesday (Jan 22, 2013). I foolishly expected the computer to shut off at 75 questions as I received the minimum amount of questions for the PN exam last year. When I saw #76 I panicked. It kept going, looking at the number when it hit 101, 151 and finally by 214 I realized I was in it for the long haul. After 5.5 hours I was finished (and I was also the last person left in the room). I was not sure how I did, I felt really confused. Slept off the anxiety and was brave enough to do "the trick" the next morning. I indeed got the good pop-up (the trick worked for me last year for the PN exam as well). I also paid for the quick results and I had passed. You can never tell by the amount of questions if you will pass or fail, but I do believe in the PVT. Congratulations!!!

    Hi everyone,

    I took mine on the 4th and I got the good pop up. So hopefully I passed. I'm still waiting for my name & license to appear on the BON website. Hopefully sometime this week. I also know what you mean - when I got to question #76, I honestly panicked a bit. I took me 5 hours to answer 131-133 questions. But you have to understand that the # of questions is just that: the # of questions. It doesn't mean you passed or failed. So many people pass with 265 and others fail with 75 questions.

    I passed with 265 questions. I repeatedly did the PV trick and kept getting the good pop-up but I was in disbelief.

    It was a grueling 6 hours, I took no breaks because I couldn't afford to, so I was really tired come along question 200. Once I hit question 221, I just knew I was in it for the long haul. Then I started getting sign/symptom questions towards the end (below passing) so I thought for sure there's no way I could have passed.

    But I did. Don't lose hope everyone, and whatever you do- do not give up! It doesn't matter what number you are on, just give it your all! If you're still getting questions, that means you're still in it to win it!
