I just took my NCLEX-RN today at 2pm and the background and format of the exam looks exactly like UWORLD which kind of reduced my anxiety because I used Uworld 2 weeks before my exam.  My test shut off at 75 and I never felt this down. I was shocked. I was praying to God to give me more questions because I am not confident with my answers & that I was willing to answer the whole 265 if that's what I need to pass.  But it shut down at 75.  I felt so defeated.  I only had 13 SATA and I was sure that my answer for the last question was wrong because I searched it up after I took my exam (which is a bad Idea because it made me feel down even more). I waited 4 hours before I did the PVT and it says "Our records indicates that you have recently scheduled this exam. Another registration cannot be made at this time. "

I watched youtube videos and they said that its a good pop up.  But I'm still in doubt because I only had few SATAs. I've been crying when I got home.  I even had a migraine and stomach ache while taking the test.  I hope I pass and hopefully the PVT still works. Has anybody ever experienced getting good pop up but ending up with failed result? 

Please Pray for me.

I am so sorry to hear about your experience right now! I want you to know that the last question is not going to determine your results. If you had been above the passing rate for 74 questions, then your last question will not mean you automatically dipped below the passing rate. You need to focus on other things, as hard as it may sound. You’re going to get your response soon. Think about the positives... you graduated nursing school and you made it this far. Retaking the NCLEX is not as negative as it may seem, some of the best nurses I know had to retake. I have a strong feeling that you did fine. You studied. You knew the material going in. There is only so many questions they can ask you in 75 questions... don’t overthink the amount of SATA. They are not as common as you may think, our programs just want us to know about them so we are prepared when they come up. You’re amazing. This time is meant to be stressful. But that’s also a great sign!! This really shows how much passing and becoming a registered nurse really means to you. I believe in you. You are in my prayers.

Answering the last question wrong is irrelevant when it stops at 75. 75 questions is the minimum question that it can stop on. The computer looks for consistency above the pass line. You may have been consistently answering questions several levels above the pass line. The last question may have been above the pass line even though you answered the question wrong.

Your school's NCLEX pass rate and your performance in school are a far more accurate predictor of pass/fail at 75 questions than the PVT trick. A graduate that did very well in nursing school, studied many hours, and went to a school that had a good NCLEX pass rate is extremely unlikely to fail at 75 questions. Failing at 75 questions would mean that you did so poorly that the computer determined that you have no chance of passing and don't deserve any more questions.

Thank you so much.  This really helped me boost myself esteem.  I really appreciate it.  Reading this made me cry. I just hope and pray I pass.

Thank you.  Now I understand because most of the  nclex takers I see from youtube kept on saying it relies on the last question.  But thank you for clearing that up.  You're giving me hopes.

It is my understanding that the only time that the last question (right or wrong) matters is if you run out of time. If you answered the last question correctly and it was above the pass line, you pass. If you answered the last question wrong, but the next question would have been above the pass line, you pass. Opposite is also true. If you answered the last question correctly, but the next question would have been below the pass line, you fail. If you answered the last question wrong and it put you below the pass line, you fail.

Thank you! 😊 Most of my questions were psychology,  few sata,  drag and drop,  some Peds,  pharma ekg strips and little bit of OB but most of it was priority and delegation. I did not have any dosage calculations. I hope this helps😁

Only 60 of the 75 questions count toward passing. You were well prepped, and you only got 75 questions. I am sure you passed!
