I just took the Nclex-RN exams and i got the full 265 questions and for some reason i could only answer about 200 questions before time ran out. What are my chances?

how do you know that you got the full 265 if you ran out of time at 200? If its any assurance, I got 265 and passed so its very possible. Its VERY possible at any number. GOOD LUCK!!

Were you in the process of answering a question when the screen shut off, if so I'd say that was incomplete test. If you are a slow test taker they can make accomadations for you. I myself took 2 hours just to do a minimum of 75 questions. I would've never finished 265 questions in 6 hours, to me that is unfair, and not enough time. Good luck!

i used up the whole 6 hours or so...didn't even take a break...so i ran out of time

If you ran out of time, the computer calculates your level of performance (known as an ability estimate) after each question. When you run out of time, the computer will look at your ability estimate over the past 60 questions. If your ability estimate remained above passing for each of the last 60 questions, you will pass. That doesn't mean that you had to answer each of the last 60 questions correctly.

This info is directly from the NCSBN, the writers of the NCLEX exam.

There's no way to determine how many questions you will have. When the test cuts off that tells you how many questions were needed to determine if you passed. Therefore if it stopped at 200 then that's all you were required to answer to satisfy the board one way or another as to whether you pass or not.

This only applies if you finished before the time deadline. Congrats on passing!
