STRANGE # OF NCLEX Questions!

Students NCLEX

Published

Can someone tell me if they know of anyone who has had a strange # of questions for the NCLEX? I hear about people having 75, 100, 180, 230, etc. I had 90 questions. Anyone out there know if that's common or does that sound like bad news? I'm a nervous wreck! They told me that the HESI is a good indicator of how one will do on the NCLEX. I passed HESI the first time with a 955. I took the NCLEX earlier this week and I think I would rather take the HESI again. I walked out from taking the NCLEX feeling like a complete failure. :crying2:

There's really no way to predict. You can literally pass or fail at ANY number. and the odds are alwasy around 88% that you passed at any number so dont stress.

have you done the pearsonvue trick yet? it works.

Any number between 75 and 265 is not strange. Numbers indicate nothing. People pass with 265, people fail with 75, everything is up for grabs

2 of my friends took it in June and ended at 90 questions; both passed. I have faith you did as well. Let us know the verdict :)

I just heard another classmate stopped at 240. I'll let you know what the outcome was.
