Test Cut Off at 140, Last Question Correct, BUT can you still FAIL?


:no::sniff::sniff::sniff:Hello Everyone

I just took the NCLEX Exam again yesterday. The questions did not seem at the Highest Level of Difficulty, as they did before. The Computer Shut Off at around 140, after 2 1/2 hours. I answered the last question correctly, I Know for a Fact, because I Triple Checked the answer when I returned home. Can you still fail even though the test did not go all the way up to 265 Questions? I Just don't Trust this Exam, because it is so UNPREDICTABLE!:eek: The last time I took it, I went to 265 Questions, & the last question was correct, but I still Failed. I Know that I answered the last question correctly. Can you still fail the exam, based on this? I was always told that if the last Question was answered correctly, then you will pass. What about thes "Experimental questions"? I read that there are 15 of them, & that they are not scored or counted. I hope this last Question that I answered was not considered one of them. If anyone knows the answer to this, Please reply. Thanks In Advance!

Honest, you just can not predict this exam. Best thing to do is relax and get out of the house :) Good luck
