Hi

I just took my exam for the RN and it shut off at around 118-120...I am so nervous right now. Any ideas if this is good or bad?

There is no good or bad....no matter what number it shuts off you will still feel miserable. When I took it, it shut off at 75 and I about cried. I had the feeling of "wait, give me one more question, I want to get one right!" I think you may have passed so give it a day or two and look it up online. I actually googled myself to find it. I hope this helps and I wish the best for you!

Thanks, I am so anxious...

I am an LPN already and when I took the LPN boards it shut off at 205 (the max)...So I am just gonna pray. I did not think the test itself was all that hard. But then again I thought the LPN one was hard and I passed so who knows.

There is no way to really know. I took an Nclex review course and the lady said that if you pass 75 questions, the computer has not made a concrete decision about your ability. As long as it is throwing out questions it is giving you a chance. I had a feeling I passed this time after so many fails because the last two questions that I answered I was a 150% sure I had the right answer right and it shut off. Sure enough, I passed. Otherwise, it is really hard to tell. If it shuts off at 75, it's a crap shoot.... you either answered everything you needed right, or you didn't.

Honest you just can not predict with this exam you can pass of fail with any number between 75 and 265.

Hang in there and good luck

You will do fine. My tips: the day before the exam get a massage or do something very relaxing. Read all the rationales for Kaplan trainer test (if you have it) or buy a good review book and study from that. The NCLEX is about concepts, so as long as you know that you will do fine. Oh and the Pearson trick works try that afterwards to give you some peace of mind.
