Hi everyone, so I have an issue. I took the nclex yesterday, and by the proctor’s own accord, she handed me a calculator (simple standard test administered calculator) with my test materials. I didn’t think anything of it because SHE gave it to me for the test and sent me in and turned the test on. I asked for breaks and was excused by other proctors, with the calculator in clear view, and nothing was mentioned. I did use it for 2 questions, (because I thought I could since it was given to me) and nothing was mentioned until AFTER I finished the exam when the proctor who breaked me noticed and said “oh you weren’t supposed to have a calculator” but she seemed fine and said “I bet you’re excited, have a great day!” When she let me leave the test room. I went home and checked my PVT trick thing and got the good pop-up (after the email was sent) and then hours later it says my test is on hold. I’m so nervous I’m going to be flagged for something that wasn’t even my fault!! Technically my quick results should be available tomorrow but I’m starting to think that won’t happen if they’re reviewing me   Does anyone have any experience with this?

honestly, this is a very odd situation. It is well-known that there is a calculator on the actual test (and the proctors usually know this) so idk why it was given to you?? was there not a calculator on the top, right screen?

There was someone in my group who brought a calc, and the proctor immediately told him he wasn't allowed to bring it. Strange that it isn't standardized

Ok, to calm you down.

If you do the PVT too soon, it will ALWAYS say your test results is on hold.  Going straight home and checking is usually the reason why. 

They administer many different tests to many different boards, colleges and universities.  You probably had a new proctor.  

I wouldn't worry about this.  Congrats!
