I sat for the NCLEX RN this morning. I graduated 5 weeks ago and thought I would have been studying daily but due to COVID19, I turned into a home school teacher to my children. Needless to say, I wasn't spending as much time studying as I had anticipated. I got a 57% on Kaplan diagnostic A and a 61% on the Kaplan Readiness exam. It took what seemed like forever to receive my ATT and when I got it, the exam dates were very spaced in between so I had to decide whether I wanted to take the exam in 5 days or 4 weeks. I chose the 5 days and was continuing to do questions with remediations up until last night. My Q Bank scores were all over the place. I felt confident enough to take it though. When I arrived at the test center I was so nervous! My hands were shaking, my stomach was in knots, and I was just really anxious. I usually get test anxiety really bad so I tried to calm myself down and focus. The first question was very simple. The second and third were very similar and I didn't know the answers so I started to freak out. I tried to use the decision tree concept but found that it didn't help. At some point during the exam I felt like the questions were fairly easy. I can remember checking my questions and I was at 47 and I thought to myself, if this doesn't shut off at 60 then I'm not doing as good as I think I am. Lo and behold it shut off at 60. Or so I think, because I didn't look back at the question numbers after 54. I walked out feeling pretty confident but that quickly turned into OMG what if I didn't do as good as I thought. All the sudden all I keep thinking about is the really hard questions that I got. Anyone get to 60 or 75 and fail? Wondering how common it is. I wish I had more opportunity to make up for it.
