What happens if....

  1. your NCLEX CAT is already beyond 75 and then you are 100% sure that your last three answers are correct and you just stop answering and wait for the time to run out.....will that make you pass?

    I am not trying to make shortcuts but this will test how well we understand NCLEX CAT...

    If time runs out on your exam, it would look at where you stood in relation to the passing standard on the last sixty questions. If you did not fall below the passing standard on the previous sixty, you would pass. The way you describe it, your plan would likely backfire.

    this is what I understand, you may pass by doing that but your BON can 'fail" you for cheating...this I think is one of the reasons why California does not subscribe to quick results...it will evaluate first how you pass or fail...

    It may be considered a dishonest act and that's certainly something to think about it, but apart from that, it's a huge gamble. Sixty questions is a long time to stay consistently above the passing standard.
