To pass nclex, must we rank ABOVE PASSING on all sections to pass?

Someone please do explain if you know about this. (I understand how the CAT works, my question is about the scoring for the categories)

Thank you in advance!

Im also confused about this..like how do they determine how much you need to be above passing for each category, for instance after doing Kaplan Q5 my results show

60% in Management of care

75% Safety Infection

73 in Health Promotion

73 in Psychosocial Integrity

54 in Basic care and comfort

56 in Pharm

69 in Reduction risk potential

87 in Physiological Adaptation

So which ones would be above passing and which one is near passing? lets say I got these scores on the real NCLEX, do you think it would be passing? I also tend to get the lowest scores n Basic care/comfort and highest in Physiological adaptation, for some reason. Thanks!

Yes you must be above passing in all domains to pass the NCLEX. The computer gives you questions in each domain until you have either surpassed, stayed near, or below the passing line in all domains with statistical significance.

You need to check with Kaplan. There are no numbers released by NCSBN as to what % correct = passing as it's much more complex than that. A candidate may have 5 high level questions in a domain & pass or 19 low, 10 medium and 3 high level to pass. Kaplan has data as to which scores have a high statistical probability of passing the NCLEX within days of achieving the Kaplan score

wttw, JustBeachy is right, we have to be above the passing line in everything.
