NCLEX

Hello, quick question, I just took the NCLEX with 125 questions and I'm sure I got the last question wrong. The first 75 I felt I was knocking the questions out the box with about 20-25 SATA's and thennn.... it kept going! The next 50 questions were tough as nails and hard. I can say honestly, that I trust that I only got about 10 correct out of those remaining 50 with 5 SATA's totaling 25/30 and I am horrified. I know we can never tell and only wait but is this a pass or fail indication to your knowledge?:no:

The only indication of this is that the computer determined with 95% confidence that you would either pass or fail the exam regardless of the number of remaining questions you answered. The number of SATA and other alternate format questions is 100% irrelevant as these questions are written both above and below passing standard. How did you do in school? That would be a more accurate reflection than the types of questions and what number you stopped at.

Don't get discouraged because you were "an average" student hell who wasn't that doesn't determine if you pass or fail. Anyway did you get your results yet?
