I took my exam yesterday 6/27/29. Computer stop at 75. This is my 21 time taking the exam. I had only 30-45 minutes left to complete my 6 hours.

Hope you get the results you're looking for prayers up. What did you do different this time around?

I got into a ONLY NCLEX STRATEGY REVIEW for three months, but so far I completed two months and wanted to test out the strategies. I’m expected to complete the strategy review the end of July.

I'm a little confused.   Did you mean to write it's your 2nd time taking the exam? You wrote 21, as though you have taken this test 21 times! 😯

If you didn't pass the first time and this was your second time, and you only had 75 questions it sounds like you either really knew your stuff this time time or blew it.  Hoping you really knew your stuff 🙂  You did take a long time to test, 5 hours for 75 questions but as long as you pass who cares!

Not too sure what you meant by you got a 3month strategy course but after only 2 months took the NCLEX anyway.  That means to me you were very confident on your knowledge and just needed test taking strategies I think.  You wouldn't be completing the strategy review at the end of July if you passed this exam if I'm reading this right.

I was trying to apply the strategy I learn to see if it works even I did not finish it yet and so I know where I’m at. But I fail again. That was my 32 time taking the exam

I believe that's a typo. In other posts, it's the 21st time.

Oh my. Most of what I wrote really doesn’t apply, and I have more questions. I didn’t think it was possible to take the licensing exam more than several times. I’ve heard of someone who passed it on the fourth or fifth time and I thought that was somewhat unique! But 21 times...how is this allowed??

Maybe a better question is...why are you still testing? Does your school know about this and if so have they offered to help you? Have you repeated any of the courses that tripped you up?  I have no idea if you can pass at all but whatever you are doing to try isn’t working.  I’m at a loss on this!

it seems that I have a retention issue. I study and I forget and I get tired. I’m going to try to work on something to help me with the fatigue if taking tests

Retention issue...that’s either a short term obstacle you overcome or a permanent disability that you don’t.

Considering the amount of time you have spent on this endeavor and not succeeded I’m sorry to say it looks like the latter may be the problem.  You were able to retain enough information to pass nursing school but not enough to practice safely as a nurse.  It’s no shame to recognize that this one path isn’t going to happen for you.  While you lack nursing ability you obviously are determined, and you should focus  that determination in a new direction. That’s a good thing!

I don’t know how many years you have invested in this but it is more than fair to say it’s enough.  Time to try a new path.
