    No one can really tell you with any certainty about your results, but most people do pass. Good luck to you!

    I disagree with you. Please do not give false hope to people. I failed 3 times and the school that I went to only had a 55% pass rate. So as far as YOU passing is individual based. Not to be rude but I put just as much time and energy in to this test and still can't pass.

    Unfortunately, you will need to remain anxious for a couple of more weeks. You will not see your name on the BRN website, but will need to wait for that envelope to arrive.

    Good luck.

    Sorry that you did not pass. But the average of passing the exam the first time is about 87% currently. So the majority do pass.

    If you are having a problem with passing, I would be more than happy to help you............we can get you thru it. just contact me via my pm box.

    i took the nclex test last saturday my computer stops at 194 whew, im very afraid for the result.i know the number of questions is not the basis for passing or failure,i just want to clarify my knowledge does it mean that questions answered more than 75 & lesser than 265, you should have a last difficult question answered before the computer shut down to be sure that you have better chance of passing since nclex rn CAT is like a trend that if you got the minimum competency it will stop &in oposite you will fail.
    another thing is that you should be sure that you last answer should be correct before the computer shut down to have good chance of passing? any opinion about my understanding&conclusion?

    The last question does not determine pass or fail. That is actually a myth. Since you stopped at 194, it's hard to tell whether you passed or failed. But you can pass at any number. Whether you get that last question right or wrong does not determine a final result of pass/fail. Hope that somewhat helps.. Good luck with your results....also to the OP!!!

    Also a myth!! NCLEX is a National Exam...so its the exact same exam in all 50 states.

    Those things you said don't actually matter. Like what has always been mentioned here, the number of items don't mean anything. It is an Adaptive Test so it adjusts to your level of competency. You may pass or fail at any given number between 75-265 ..... but MAJORITY of first time NCLEX takers do pass ....right suzanne?

    Hang in there, hopefully you'd be able to share your result with us and we'd all be giving you our sincere congratulations!
