Hello. Okay so in the beginning i used nclex pn 3000 then I tried uworld. I purchased ncbsn. I'm trying to do as many questions as possible. Apparently i keep scoring 50-70s on the ncbsn exams. I felt confident with the other 2 but when i did the ncbsn it killed me. Now i'm having doubts. I test in 2 wks.

Hello,

I found myself doing the same if I scored lower than I wanted on a quiz BUT i knew I was just messing with my mind. I told myself after every quiz that no matter the score I would stay confident. I used uworld and I found it very helpful. I took NCLEX on the 10th and passed in 75 questions. Some of my friends took Kaplan and the average score was a 60% and the instructor informed them that the likelihood of passing NCLEX was high if they got above a 60%. That statement made me wonder if it is different for every question bank. That is also why i liked u-world, it shows you the average score and my goal was to always score above average. Try to stay confident and stay consistent by doing questions every day. I hope this was at least a bit helpful.

Hi there,

Congratulations on getting this far in your career, but now is the most important part. You need to be confident in yourself. You simply cannot compare the two. Everybody tests differently under stress. There are many factors that can affect how you perform on your exam. Keep doing what you are doing, review information you know will be on the exam, and do lots of practice questions each day leading up until one or two days before the exam. I recommend not studying the day before your exam as your brain needs time to rest and prepare for your exam. Remember, this exam tests your critical thinking abilities. If your mind is in the right place and you are confident, you will be able to critically think through each question. Take your time on the exam. Good luck!
