I'm not sure if this will help calm peoples nerves or not. After my exam was cancelled in March I really dropped the ball on studying. Between being afraid of the exam getting cancelled and the massive amount of work our BSN professors were assigning when we moved to online classes for the remainder of the semester, I only did maybe 630 questions (from when I subscribed last year) on U-World and the 2 practice tests. A fair number of those were done while studying for classes in my last semester of associates as well. Almost all of my studying in April began on the 26th and I tested May 1st. I only really did the practice test ( I had done the other in March and had 19%) and got a 23% (borderline) and maybe 20-50 questions a day, followed by glancing at topics I had forgotten in my class notes 2 days before for maybe 45 mins each day. I do not recommend this and its not how I had been planning to study back in March, but some how I made it through the exam and hit 130 questions after about 2 hours and 15 mins. I thought I had failed all weekend but got the quick results today and passed.

Things of note: PVT worked with the "good" pop up. Results were about 49 hours after start of exam so between start and end of exam. My school does boost something like a 96% NCLEX pass rate and I feel like my classes prepared me way more than my studying. My exit ATI exam showed me a 82% chance of passing NCLEX. I did not get to relax the day before because we were presenting in an online undergraduate research day for a BSN class the day before I had NCLEX. I do typically have test accommodations. I did not use them for NCLEX, but I did take a prescribed anxiety med Ativan 0.5mg. I live and took my exam in Staten Island, NY.

Anyway good luck to everyone preparing to take the exam biggest thing for me was staying calm and taking deep breaths when over whelmed during the exam.

CONGRATS on passing! I know you mentioned you didn't use accommodations, but do you know anyone that has used extra time accommodations on NCLEX-RN and the pop up trick worked for them?

I know some people who used accommodations, but I never asked if they did the pop up trick. They all finished the test before any extra time would have been needed.
