HI every1. I just took my nclex and i got the maximum questions. I was really worried and asking my self "why isn't this computer shutting off?". When I left the testing center, GOD knows I wanted to cry. Most of my friends I knew their computer shuts off at 80ish question. Now, still worried and waiting for the result is much more worst. Most of my questions were out field questions. I'm not sure if I'm lucky enough due to my clinical exerienced (Thanks to my Great Instructors). 205 questions???? whew!

I have seen people pass with 85 or 205. At least the computer worked with you to the bitter end. I remember being totally bewildered with the test when I walked out of there. I cried for three days and didn't think that I passed, even with the 8000+ questions I played with throughout the studying time. It was a rainy day to start and I was more depressed when I got out of there. I don't even remember how I got home to this day. And, I came to the conclusion that there was really nothing I could have done different. I took a month off from work, studied for at least 5-6 hours a day, didn't accept any phone calls except from supportive people and yet, the exam was still out of left field. I wish you the very best.

Thanks!!! I really need that :). I hate this feeling grrrr.... waiting for the result makes me crazzzzyyyyyyyyyy especially this person I went to school with took the board 1 week early before me and just received the result "FAILED". His computer stopped at 85, now he's giving me negative thoughts saying (as if he is really sure) "we better study together because im really sure u failed too, i don't wanna disappoint u but we better study now!". What a friend huh? Grrrrrrrrrrrrrr:angryfire he's pulling my hopes down. Oh well, I just wanna share this so at least i got it out (a little) of myself. whew! :typing

The one thing I did not do is to communicate with others after I graduated and before I took the boards. It may have been cruel, but once you get to that point, it is basically every man for himself. Hearing that certain people who I expected to pass didn't and vice versa was not helpful because I was not going to get the exact test that any of them got. And, yes, as your story states, misery loves company. I wish YOU the best!

Whew! :nuke:I received my letter yesterday from Board of Nursing, at first I was really nervous because the envelop that came in was big (they told me if it is a big envelop, it usually means u failed because in that letter they also included the re-appliation form), my knees were shaking while I was holding the big envelop, when I opned it... what a relief .... it says "PASSED". I jumped and screamed yooohoooooooooooooooooooooooooo...... :rollI PASSED, I PASSED, I PASSED! :heartbeatI sent a text messages to all my friends and relatives spreading the great news, I even sent one to that person who thinks that I failed too. He didn't txt me back. My friend told me that he called that person and he sounded bitter about the great great news. Oh well, life's been good to me. I want to thank you all very very much for giving me great support and keeping my hopes high!!!U GUYS ARE THE GREATEST!!!!

congratulations!!!:balloons:

and you have just proved once again that the number of questions has no bearing on whether a test-taker passes or not. it is based strictly on the level of questions that one gets correct.

best of luck to you on your new career!!!!!!
