75 Questions and 12 SATA's

Students NCLEX

Published

I just took the NCLEX RN and it stopped me at 75 questions. I was completely freaked out because there were 12 SATA's. No one in my class so far has had more than 9, and most not even that many! I do terribly on the SATA questions- occasionally can get 2 or 3 out of 10 on practice quizzes. I know for sure that I missed some med questions, and I am so worried that I failed! Maybe I should try the Pearson Vue trick- how long does it take to work? Any insights into an insane number of SATA'S???? If I failed because of them.....argghhh.....:bluecry1:

u can try the pearson vue trick as soon as it says "delivery succesful" ..look for delivery succesful in the box where it shows u ur appointment date..good luck!

Try the pearsonvue trick!! I know I had more than 10 out of my 75 questions!! I stopped counting at 10,lol and I passed

I just tried the "trick" and the pop-up showed, and I couldn't progress to the payment page....so, according to the urban legend, this means I passed! It may or may not be true, but I'm going with it to relieve stress! LOL

Thanks! :D

I hope my outcome is like yours! I thought it was a cruel joke, especially since I had been complaining to all my fellow test-takers that I hoped I wouldn't get too many!! LOL! It was torture- I thought there was an evil demon controlling the computer!

Thanks for your reply!!:)

I was cursing at the screen too,lol Some say they are the "harder" style questions, so I was taking it has a good thing. But have seen members on here only get 1 and pass, so who knows. Its in the past,lol

I have heard that about the "harder" thing and it being a good thing. I can tell you it didn't feel like a "good"thing!! And if I didn't pass...well....it won't seem fair with that many harder questions. Now I just wait for the results....:confused:

It's good that your practicing them! I got used to getting them wrong most of the time, so I became kind of indifferent to them. LOL They just irritated me on the actual exam, and I figured I wouldn't get most right (just like practice-lol) I hope to know my results by tomorrow or Monday. The pearson vue trick seemed to indicate that I passed (if it works-who knows?). I don't trust it though. At least it's over....I hope for good!!!!! Good luck!

You can not guarantee the SATA are harder style questions they are just another format style and may even be test questions as no one really knows which are test and which aren't except the computer

Well, they certainly are harder-style for ME, regardless of what the computer thinks :typing! lol It's funny how we all try to second-guess the way the "mysterious computer adaptive " test works.....I guess we are just trying to figure out the best way to approach it in order to pass, since the amount of information needed is overwhelming. It's quite a hurdle to make it over!
