75?s, mostly "Select All That Apply"

Posted

Just took my test this AM,

am now starting to freak out :no:

Test was 75?s, almost half or more were "select all that apply", or so it seems. (anxiety could be clouding my memory) :uhoh3:

I'm trying to figure out if the SATA questions are considered to be higher-level questions.

my SATA questions would come in strings of 5-10?s at a time. spent a lot of time wondering "what ever happened to multiple choice?"

does anyone know about the significance of SATA questions? is getting loads of SATA ?s back to back a good sign?

thanks!

same question here...i also took my exam last 18 and i got 75 questions,16 of which are SATA questions,plenty of prioritization qs too.:uhoh3:..that was definitely a brain twister....now i dont know if i should start to rejoice or worry.....how true is that information regarding SATA and prioritization questions? are they really considered the higher level?

Number of questions has no bearing on your results, nor the number of SATA questions. Please be aware that all exams have 15 questions that do not count but you never will know which ones that they are when you test or later on.

There is no way to second guess one's results, you are going to need to wait until you can access Pearson-Vue if your state participates in early results or on your BON website.

Best of luck to you.

lets just hope for the best and continue praying..if i remember it right,my last question was also a SATA.:bowingpur.i was really aiming for 75 so when it stopped right there,i was really happy....went out from the test center with a big smile! hahaha and its just now that it started to sink in that maybe i could also have failed that exam..maybe i was just too confident thinking i got SATA and prioritizations.....waaaah.......

good luck to us......let us know how it all went...will let u know too if i already have the result....:nuke:

I was sick the day before so i really prayed hard that i just get the minimal number of questions so i am able to stay focused and He answered my prayers. I know that His presence was there while I was taking my test. I sure hope this time He allows me to pass because if not maybe He still has other plans for me.

Happy Sunday there in the Philippines!!! By the way, I'm Filipino too:nuke:

hello kababayan!!! yeah,same here...i really prayed and asked HIM to stay with me and guide me during the exam..im usually panicky in almost all situations but that day was different..i was even excited to take my exam..am i weird?anyway,i woke up,went to pearson vue confidently (which is quite unusual for a "tarantitit" gal like me....heheh), answered it and went out of the test center smiling..i dont know maybe i was just being too confident or what but the feeling is really different..i know i wasnt alone during my exam....i know he gave me the confidence and the enlightenment i asked Him...

lets stay positive...my prayers are with all of you...i hope we all pass!!!!:nuke::nuke::nuke:

ok ill just wait for it then..this waiting period is also a torture..We will just keep on praying for each other..Hope everything goes well....they said you can view your name on the CABON till 10days?

test results in CA get posted online pretty quickly...around 48 business hours

i believe there is another way to know your pass/fail status (if you have a valid interim permit), but this also will only work on monday-friday b/c the website is only updated between those days...

interim permits are voided once the results are mailed/released. if you type in your name, your IP will no longer show up if the passing results are posted (or if your failure notice has been mailed)...

if you search for your IP and it is no longer there, then search your name in the permanent license area...if it's there: rejoice! you passed :yeah:

if your IP is no longer valid, and you search your name in the permanent license area and it doesn't show up, :uhoh3:

I'm not 100% sure on this, and no one from my classmates has failed (or cares to share that info, understandably) to verify...

but, if it's true, at least i can prepare myself and my family for the not-so-great news that may be coming in the mail...

i'll just be sad b/c i literally spent everyday since mid-February studying: first, the WHOLE Saunders-Comprehensive Review (the accompanying CD has a pre-test that makes a calendar to help one finish the whole book in 30 days)...then, ALL of the Kaplan Q-bank: 1250+ questions @ 150?s a day; i even took notes/researched on the rationales of ?s i missed/got lucky on/had a hard time with, and, after sorting em out by systems it came out to 80 (!) pages of nursing tidbits...Lastly, the WHOLE exam-cram practice book, (5) 250 exams, 1 taken and reviewed each day...there is literally an indent on my couch from where i've spent the last month(s), save for the days sprinkled here and there of killer snowboarding this season has brought, so i can't whine for too long...:D

I just feel like I studied to pass, and every diagnostic/practice exam has led me to believe I would succeed given my preparation, but all those SATA questions, back to back, didn't let me use my NCLEX-trained mind and strategies at answering multiple choice questions...except for the priority ones, which the test ended with, also in a string of 5-7, with an SATA thrown in second to last, just to drive me mad...

are priority questions considered higher-difficulty? i always did well on priority ?s, so i assumed they were easy low-level ?s anyone know otherwise?

can anyone provide a sample "low level" SATA question juxtaposed against a "high level" SATA question? i'm pretty good at separating the recall/recognition mult-choice ?s from the application/analysis type MC?s, but w/ the SATA questions, each mini T/F item seems to be a mixture of recall info and analysis info, and i just can't tell!

wow. i wrote a novel. sorry guys, it seems i needed to vent. i think its time to put the laptop down and watch some basketball...pass or fail, it just feels good not to be studying today :D

good vibes and serenity to all! here's to not studying today... :beer:

I am also took it on April 17th...sounds like "D" day.....

I am also one of those 75vers.

I checked some answers and they were clearly wrong, also got tons of SATA.

3 months wasted, then to start from scratch again.....:banghead:

Sorry, but the average wait for CA is ten days. Not two to three days as CA will permit one to test if they graduated from school in CA before the transcripts have even reached the BRN; and they will not release a license until a file is complete.

There is no quick way to know your results until you see your name on their website. The IP trick that you are mentioning does not always work either. Just because a name is not there, does not tell you that you have passed the exam. Again, until one sees their name or gets written results from the BRN, there is no other trustworthy process to follow. And the majority of students here do not go for the IP as most employers want to see that the nurse has actually passed the exam before they will even permit them to test.

hi i stopped at 75 too...4 satas,,,so sad,,,

hi can i join here...i took mine last april 17 and still waiting for my result too..but pearson vue website says unofficial result can be viewed with payment..i dont know whether i pay or wait for the official result..what do you think...?

hi! i think its better to know the result earlier. it reduces your anxiety level and helps you plan what to do next. access to unofficial result costs only less than $10. good luck!:nuke:
