shut off at 75th question pass or fail (nclex rn)

Posted

Has 6 years experience.

Anybody here who passed at 75 having easy questions? I know they're at easy level coz they're just actually testing your content and memory. I dont think I got them all right esp on SATA. I cant believe I did so bad that it had to shut off at 75.. =( i dont know what to do now. This is my 2nd time. I still dont know the result. Just took it yesterday. I cant sleep and I feel so depressed right now...

People pass and fail at 75. If the questions felt "easy" to you, it could be that they were below the passing line, OR it could be that you were very well prepared and that it was an easy test for you. It happens (unfortunately not to me!) If you are in a state that participates in quick results, you should know tomorrow.

Best of luck!

I got more or less 10 memory/content questions which were pretty basic like assessment and ear drop admin. 12 SATA which were also more of memory and content. I just cant believe I did so bad that I had to stopped at 75.. :/ This was my 2nd time. The first was ran out of time at 198th question.. I wont be able to sleep tonight i guess.. I did everything just to be prepared for this exam. ill keep u updated about the result. :no:

I braved the PVT a while ago. I used a deactivated credit card. I thought it wouldnt work but it led me to click submit order page and I just cant believe I had a "good pop" just like everyone else. .Is it reliable??

Cant sleep right now. Its already 2am here and I have to wait till 8am to check the quick result. I didnt wanna do the PVT actually but I cant just sit here doing nothing so I tried it 10+ times and it's telling the same thing. That good pop-up. I hope thats a good sign..:down:

I did Kaplan Qtrainer, lacharity and I attended the live review course of Rachell allen. This is my second time to take the test. The first time was a failure so I had to change my routine. Since I just did a self review before(1st take) and Im out of school for 6 yrs, I decided to take the 10 day live review course of Rachell Allen.

I'd give you all the details once its confirmed that I passed.

I graduated in 2009.. I took nclex rn in 2011 and failed 265.. I was denied by Cali BON when i re apply for the test again.. So i applied for Nclex PN in 2013 and pass! I am currently here in cali working as an LVN, Now i decided to take nclex rn again i applied in oregon. I will be planning to work part time so i can focus on studying.. I feel like am back to basic again.. Am doing saunders again and ncsbn..

I had Saunders app with 3000+ questions on it and Lippincott book which I used last January before coming here in the states. I didnt finish both. These were all the books suggested by my friends who basically passed it the first try 3-5 yrs ago(they were fresh grads that time). I did almost 3000 questions. But maybe bacause I wasnt focused enough that time I failed. I lackd content. The rachell allen course I attended was awesome. It compressed all the basic content that we have learned in school for 4 yrs in a 10day live course. That was what I needed.

And now that I have a "good pop-up" on my screen. I cant wait to see my quick result. i hope its 99.9% reliable. Oh my.

STOP DOING THE TRICK!!! More than one member has had the charge attempt to go through after continuing to attempt to test the registration glitch known as the Pearson Vue trick.

Is PVT illegal? I mean am I not allowed to do it? My quick result will be available in a few hours. I already stopped.

It's not illegal. It's a registration glitch. If you are charged and passed there are no refunds because A. You agreed twice to the charge by clicking submit and B. You violated the terms of the agreement by creating a duplicate registration (which is exactly what the "trick" is attempting to do.) Attempt to submit a charge enough times and it may go through (and has for at least two others who insisted on attempting the "trick" over a dozen times) and you just donated $200 non refundable dollars to Pearson. And then have no idea whether you passed or failed. Why tempt fate?

Wait a few hours for accurate results with quick results for only $8

When you got to the page where you were to enter your CC#, did you actually press submit? And then confirm that submission with a second 'enter'? The "good pop up" people are so hyper-focused on is a screen that tells you that you have an open registration and cannot register again at this time-IOW, you actually submit payment information but it doesn't take it. And no, FWIW, it's not terribly reliable anymore.

If you didn't actually submit the info....you didn't do the PVT.

That said....I'd REALLY recommend you not do it. You can get Quick Results shortly; pay the eight bucks and be done with it, no guesswork involved.

Thanks for all the concern.. I know its not reliable. But in my own opinion the relief I felt using the PVT after 24 hours outweighs all the risk. I dont regret doing the PVT since i used deactivated card. It made me feel a bit relaxed for the remaining hours while waiting for the quick result. Im just so happy that I passed the exam! Confirmed it today at 7am.

75 is usually the cut off

75 is usually the cut off

Actually, no. 75 is the minimum number of questions. If you're doing consistently above or below passing standard, it'll shut off at 75. If you get question 76, it means you're close to the pass/fail line and you weren't clearly passing or failing. In other words, if your exam shuts off at 75, you were either doing very well, or very poorly, and to the point of not needing further testing. If you go beyond 75, your pass/fail score is too close to call, so it has to keep asking questions until you reach a point where you do satisfy a pass/fail rule. The NCLEX isn't graded traditionally and you will never truly know if you were doing extremely well or poorly or if you were just barely consistently above or below the passing mark to clearly be scored pass/fail. You'll get an idea where your weaknesses are in the performance report if you did fail.

Yes youre absolutely right. You can never can tell if you did good/bad. When my computer shut off at 75 I was confident that I knew most of the topics being asked. I felt I did well. I was really praying that my computer should shut off at 75 since I knew most of the answers. But when I went home I doubted that thought. I realized most of the questions were basic and easy (ex. Asking the correct assessment of abdomen- that's IPPA or IAPP).. They said you have to encounter a lot of above average questions for you to pass. But I think that's not always the case. .Maybe I was just so lucky and blessed. Thank God.. :)

I passed in 75 questions recently. I felt that some of my questions were below the passing line because they seemed to be content/memory. I just kept answering every question to my best ability because that is all you can do. I ended up passing, so don't worry about it until you get your results. It's not over until you get your official pass/fail. Glad you passed!
