NCLEX Post-Exam Trial Questions

AP_Hill73 AP_Hill73 (New) New

Hello. I sat for the NCLEX exam this past Friday, 18 August 2017, in Philadelphia. I did not feel confident when the exam finished. The computer "shut off" after 75 questions. Of those 75 questions, I received 31 select-all-that-apply questions (of course, I thought this was very strange). I found the NCELX exam to be very difficult.

At any rate, after the exam was finished, the computer asked me if I would mind answering 20 additional "trial" questions (no, I am not talking about the 15 embedded trial questions in the group of 75 test questions or the survey at the end of the exam). Anyway, has this happened to anyone else? Quite frankly, I don't know what to make of being asked to answer this set of end-of-exam trial questions.

Thank you.

There is nothing to 'make' of it. Every so often, the NCLEX includes this section to trial new questions. Random testers are asked to answer them. They do not impact your score. Not answering them does not impact your score. Being asked to answer them is not reflective of how you did on the scored portion of the exam.

It doesn't affect your pass or fail. I took 75 on Thursday and it asked me to take them. I decided to opt out and I still passed. The Pearson vie site states that they have survey questions at the end of their test now instead 15 included
