That is correct, alfredpower, and thank you.
You cannot post copywritten questions on the public forums.
Are the practice questions helpful?
They were nothing special. they weren't very hard and they all had to do with the code or standards.
i mean, only 5 questions is not helpful for me. I would have liked to see what kind of med/surg questions they asked.
Don't stress about the Med-Surg they are all very general and common knowledge questions. Not much critical needed either. I wouldn't go opening up a pharm book. If you're a practicing nurse the med-surg should be a walk in the park. The publications is where you need to put all your focus.
Yes it's true med-surg part is somehow easy if your currently in practice but how in d' earth we would know our mistakes there? Or how could we know d' critical questions?
Well I just found out from my recruiter that she heard of three people who have passed outright. She was gonna ask them for tips, so will let you all know once I've heard back. She also suggested that we all write emais to the NMC, maybe if enough of us email they can realize that there test is nearly impossible (I say nearly, because clearly those three people passed). This is the email she suggested [email protected]i don't know how effective it will be, but it's worth a try! The two who were re-assessed weren't given any reason as to why, but where told within three days of sitting the exam.

Hey everyone, yes send an email to this one. Just make sure you put at top your full name, dob, PRN number and then write your frustrations etc and ask what will be done to correct the situation. I myself have been in regular contact but so far NMC are not admitting fault with any aspect of the testing procedure.
I'm particularly interested in those who get a response to a question along the lines of us having wasted our money on a faulty/below par test...
PS to those who will be booking a second test in the near future pm me if you like, I have some further info for you.

I sent an email to them, they replied. Its like, its our fault and the questions are made by "professionals".
I tried booking my next exam, i received my second ATT (Jan 16 to jan 2015) but , unsurprisngly, i cannot book. There was no pre approved exam for mw
Hi ms. Gen88 can u email me? I badly need help... I already failed one time and I can't fail again... here's me email: [email protected]
Thanks a lot!!! -elle-
Hey gen88, I'm new on this site and can't figure out how to PM you haha.
Heres my email: [email protected], if not PM me. Have you been able to book the exam the second time?
I did the free practice test and didn't find it to be overly useful but it's free so I would recommend doing it. I haven't seen anywhere you can get the paid practice test from.
I still can't register to re-sit the test but the agency I've been talking to in the UK have said that the NMC are looking into the exam issue... don't know how true this is.
It's interesting that some people weren't aware of which were the essential questions, somewhere I read that we would be told if the question was essential and about 40 of the questions I received had a note up near the top of the page stating that they were essential questions (can't remember exact wording)
Oh wow, really? I looked everywhere on my screen and didn't see anything about essential question. And I looked because I was under the notion that they would be highlighted as I would have sworn that was mentioned in the candidate form. But when I looked back I didn't see anything that mentioned it would be highlighted. Has the NMC given anyone a response as to why they are unable to sit for the 2nd attempt?

i couldn't find them either... i was beginning to think that i was the only one... so then after i took the exam i rushed back online to the candidate guide and as i browsed through it i couldn't find a clear statement that they would be indicated. i was left unsettled. then i thought, it really wouldn't matter if they were marked or not unless i had to sit the exam a second time.
sadly, later that day, i found out that i had to and it was just frustrating since i sincerely thought that i did well on the exams... and now i wish they had been marked because i formed the conclusion that it was the only way that i could have failed the exam.
as for the re-booking for the 2nd take, so far, i haven't heard from the vast number of re-takers who were able to with success despite having the updated Authorization to Test mailed to them with 1 more try valid. the pearson vue site just didn't list the approved exam.
i just feel that the format is unjust. considering that it devalues the candidates' efforts as it weighs heavily on the exam's critical questions which may target specific differences in nursing practice instead of universally accepted safe practices for nursing. think about it. regardless of the number of critical questions you get on the exam, missing out on just one of them would render your whole exam void even if you had a more than decent score that would be well over 60%. instead their markings would cease if, let's say, you get 1 critical q wrong, i don't think they would waste their time marking the rest of the question base.
