Took the NCLEX today 79 questions!

  1. i took the nclex today and the machine shut off at 79 questions, and i know that i did get the last question wrong. as in the other threads i received a lot of prioritizing questions, though i still dont know if they are considered higher level.

    does that mean i was close to passing at 75, how can 4 more questions decide whether or not i passed?

    i did not think that i would be this anxious about my results, but i am.
    has anyone else ?
    will i be able to findout my results in 48 hrs eventhough i took the exam on a saturday?

    Am sure if you look around there are plenty of people that pass with that number, one of my classmates did pass with 79 questions, but you must also remember that the number of questions you got, means nothing, wishing you the very best. Kayla

    The number of questions does not determine pass/fail. There was a person here on this forum that passed with 79 questions, and one of my classmates passed with 77 questions. So you can pass or fail at amount of questions. Good luck!
