265 questions! last question was MATH

Posted

Okay feeling a little nervous and scared. Retook my NCLEX yesterday, got all 265 questions (last question being MATH) waited over the 24 hours to do the PVT and got the "good" pop up. Used my actual credit card (figured regardless I was going to pay the $200 again anyway). I honestly felt there is no way I passed. The first time I took the test I got the full 265 questions and did the trick and got charged the $200. I'll pay to get my quick results tmrw. Has anyone else gotten the "good" pop up and failed?

Can't speak to the PVT as I didn't try it, BUT I did pass with 265 questions and the last one a math question (can't even tell you for sure if I got it right!). I think you have good reason to be hopeful.

My opinion is that the PVT cannot be relied on. Don't really understand why people can't just wait. Do people really have $200 lying around to spend on that instead of waiting 48 hours or less?

AFTER 24 hours, I haven't come across that. REPEATEDLY doing the PVT? Then yes. Don't keep doing it, let it go.

OP posted on another thread that she passed

thanks :) Multiple threads make it hard to follow!

REPEATEDLY?!?!! Did I miss something?

Congratulations on passing :) I was wondering what you did differently the 2nd time around that you believe may have helped you pass. Thanks!

Actually this time I just focused on questions. I did Uworld and I really liked that over all others. I did Kaplan for my first attempt and scored well on the trainers but still failed. So I recommend Uworld.

Oh, this wasn't meant to say that you WERE doing it repeatedly....it was more of a caution to NOT keep doing it. Many times people post that they did the PVT and they keep doing it over and over (and when they finally manage to get a different pop up they are shocked).

Lots of people read threads like this, so it was more of a warning for them than something for you, sorry if it looked that way!

And congrats :)
