When you got home, did some research, and then counted up the number of questions you got wrong - how many did you miss but then still pass the exam? Was anyone out there convinced they failed based on the number of questions they know they failed but then end up still passing the exam?

I've got quite a long wait until I get my results, but when I count up the questions I got wrong of those I can remember, I'm pretty sure the number is somewhere between 15 and 20. I'm wondering if it's even possible to pass if I missed 20 questions.

Can't just predict with this exam. Also depends on how the questions are scored and whether you are in the right category. I would suggest a good read on the NCSBN website as it explains it very well on the scoring of the exam

I was surprised that I passed with so few questions because, as most, I didn't feel well prepared. We all like to speculate about the test but the bottom line is that it is not easy to predict. When the computer determines you have met or have not met the criteria, that is it. Number of questions has nothing to do with that determination, other than to indicate how long in the stream of questions, it took for the person testing to meet parameters.
