So I took my boards for the 4th time 2 days ago and no results are up on PA's website....for the 3rd time in a row I had all 265 questions so I know what that's like..the 1st time I had 75 so I know how it is both ways!! So is it true that answering the last question correctly means you passed? This time I know the last question was correct, but I should have found out today...another thing I'm contemplating is that I scheduled my test at 10 a.m. and not the usual 8 a.m. and it took me 5 hours to complete the test so do anyone think that's why I didn't get results today??? HELP ME TRY TO STAY POSITIVE!

I know how you feel - I took it today and got 265...the last 50 or so were so incredibly difficult, I feel like I missed them all. I started to drift off round question 200 and can't honestly remember how I even got home from the testing site (which is a five hour drive from my house!!)

Keep your chin up. At this point, worry will do no good. I'm sure you've heard this before! It's over and done with and whatever will be will be. Stay positive and know that getting all 265 doesn't mean a thing - maybe you were one of the "lucky few" random takers who were selected to take the whole test regardless of how well you were performing! That's what I'm telling myself....

Keep checking the site - but not too much! Your results should be posted two business days after you COMPLETED the exam...not when you started.

I'm sorry, I had to quote this to correct this common misunderstanding. There is no such thing as people being "randomly selected to take the whole test regardless of how well you were performing".

It just doesn't work that way.

However, you both have very good chances at passing!! I wish you the best of luck!! :)
