265 questions is almost guaranteed if your a male.

The amount of males who get all 265 questions is alarming and needs to be looked into. I have a friend who failed twice at 265. I passed at 265. Another friend got all 265 today. 3 other male classmates got all 265. I work with 6 male coworkers. 5 of them got 265. The amount of men in nursing is already a fraction, but the percentile that goes all 265 has to be alarming. In 20 years I am gonna see a commercial saying "If you're a male and took the NCLEX and received all 265 questions you may be entitled to financial compensation."

I'm legit curious now. Hopefully some other guys can chime in and rid me of my new tinfoil hat, but I literally just asked every guy I know or work with and kept getting the same answer. So odd. Apparently only 15% of people get all 265.

This is only anecdotal information. However, both off the males I know who recently took it passed at 75 and 130.

Same applies for females i know many who have taken the nclex and have gotten all 265. 

I also know many who have taken the nclex male and female who have gotten 75. 

If they did a survey for how many people received between 75-265 the numbers would be all over the place.

ok ok. i'll got ahead and say it--y'all want to but nobody wants to be the first.

OP---what you're implying is not that the test is biased against men.

What you're actually implying is that men aren't as intelligent as women when taking the NCLEX.

It's insulting. Should we dumb it down for the male test taker so that they can pass under the 265? maybe we should filter the test for age. and ethnicity. and race.

good golly. you have what---4 friends that say they needed 265? I have students that I tutor---FEMALE students---that have come to me sweating bullets because...

drum roll....

they got all 265.

Be grateful that you passed. Remind me why you are upset that you passed?  You're not one of those "stacy" and "chad" guys are you?
