No one here would know your chances of passing. There is no formula for that. The test is structured so that you get what you get and you either succeed or don't. It's best not to worry; it's over and done with now so you can exhale and await your results. Good luck.

Did u encounter priorty q's? they say u hav a biger chance if u had those q's...

Many people have passed the NCLEX-RN without answering one select all that apply/alternative format or dosage calculation question. There is no way of telling if you've passed or failed the NCLEX-RN, based on the type of questions or number of questions you received. Anything you've read or heard about having to receive a specific number or type of question is a myth. Best of luck of success on the NCLEX.

Just to clear up a few things for you:

Number of questions has no bearing on the results.

Getting the last question right or wrong has no bearing.

Stucture of question has no bearing on the results.

All that take the exam get 50% correct and 50% incorrect. No matter if you graduated yesterday or have 20 years of experience in another country. It is the level of the questions that you are getting correct that determine if you pass or do not pass. All that the exam wants to do is see if you will practice as a safe nurse, nothing more.

CA will never have Quick Results, as if the nurse does not have a SSN#, they are not going to issue the license to you. And CA will permit a CA grad to sit for the exam before they have received their transcripts, as long as their name is on a list that they are expected to pass. But this is only valid for those that attend school in CA, not out of state, or foreign grads. So do not expect to see Quick Results, and only about 50% of the states participate in that, many do not.

I took my NCLEX on August 7th, and I only got 2 select all that apply questions, but I got about 8-10 priority questions and I DID PASS!! I also was lead to believe that if you did not get alot of the select all questions that you were not doing good, and I remember while taking the test saying to myself, "where are all the select alls". The two that I did get I thought were extremely easy, so maybe I got those right and the computer felt that I did not need anymore of them. I also did not get any dosage calculations either. I am sure that you have nothing to worry about, and I hope that this helps to ease your mind regarding those questions.;)

thanks very much for your replies!!! i just cant help to be worried ...i just kept on praying for my results!!!i dont know what happened to me during the exam...so please pray for me!!!

my select all were mostly signs and symptoms so i was thinking that it belonged to the recall and recognition, they said recall is just the first level in terms of difficulty of the exam. i had priority, delegation, MS, signs and symptoms, some meds... even herbal meds,and i thought most of my answers were wild guesses.... im really sad about it after the exam.

Just curious. What is the reasoning behind thinking and sounding so sure that California will never have quick results?
