PASSED NCLEX IN 130

Just wanted to post this for others who have gotten all 130 questions with the new NCLEX test minimum/maximum (60/130). Took my exam on July 1st feeling prepared after doing both a review course (Anderson NCLEX Review through Fitzgerald website) and then doing UWorld and one practice exam. I only had approximately 800 questions left in the question bank and scored "HIGH CHANCE OF PASSING" on the UWorld practice exam. 

After passing question 60 on the NCLEX, my nerves skyrocketed and I panicked. I ended up going all the way to question 130 (the maximum) and for sure thought I failed. After receiving the email confirmation that I had taken the NCLEX, I attempted to do the Pearson Vue Trick.. time and time again I got a pop up that said "Invalid method of payment. The fields have been cleared, please reenter with a new card" (or something along those lines). The Pearson Vue Trick made my anxiety a lot worse AND convinced me I failed. 

Finally, after waiting 48 hours to purchase the Quick Results.... I found out I PASSED! 

My best recommendation is to NOT DO THE PEARSON VUE TRICK, especially if you got all 130 questions or if the time stopped before you answered all questions. Try your best to relax and forget about it until you can purchase the quick results. 

I wish I had read a post along these lines after getting all 130 questions so I thought this would cause some sort of relief for some test takers. :) 

Goodluck! Believe in yourself :) 

Congratulations! I am sitting for my NCLEX this coming Friday. I am a nervous wreck.

I hope you're enjoying your holiday weekend!

Thank you! Don't be nervous. You got this! Be confident, but like I said, do not panic if you go pass 60 questions! 🙂

I did my NCLEX yesterday and it shut off before 130. I’m not sure if I finished the exam. I was wondering what type of questions did you got? My questions got easier the last part. I also stopped counting SATA. I have a gut feeling I failed 😭 I’m scared to do PVT

Good luck! I'm sure you did just fine. What did you use to review, if I may ask?

I enrolled myself to a review center in my area and I did NCSBN learning extension.

Did your time expire? I had a large variety of questions- I felt as though I had so many SATA and priority. My last two questions were SATA. Don't bother with the PVT! Just wait the 48 hours to purchase the quick results. Try to stay busy! Goodluck 🙂

Yes, I felt like every other question was a SATA. Or every two questions was.

I know this might sounds hilarious but I don’t have the courage to see the quick results either. Kept checking my name on the BON but it’s not there so I figured I didn’t pass. 😭

did you do the PVT?

I got the bad pop up. I’m actually one of those people who did the trick within 30 mins after the test with my actual cc and then got charged... should’ve waited couple hours. Now I’m crying my heart out

Awwww! Take it easy, I heard stories about bad pop up who took 130 q’s and they ended up passing after getting the quick results. I didn’t do PVT or quick result. I have all the patience to wait for my CPR result. Just incase I failed. How was your exam by the way?
