You are peaking at the right time. Ideally, you have the test scheduled the day before you say to yourself "I am so sick of these questions, I can't do anymore." Then the next day you take the test, it stops at 75 questions, you do the PVT trick, get on AN and tell us how many SATA questions you had and ask if you passed or failed. A little while later, you see your name posted on your BON website, do the Happy Dance, get an awesome RN job and live happily ever after.

You sound like you are doing great and understand the nursing process.. Now take a deep breath and save all that anxiety for after the exam.... I just took mine today and the anxiety is worse than I felt before the exam. I wish you the best. GOOD LUCK :)

To add on to NICU Guy: You will take your test, the waiting period to get your results will be BRUTAL and you will doubt yourself and freak out. But when your license is posted and you inform us that you DID pass, we will all give you a virtual pat on the back and congratulate you!! But seriously, your scores are AWESOME. Everyone in my cohort who scored over 60% on UWorld finished in around 75 questions. The fact that you are starting to feel confident gives you an even bigger advantage, remaining calm, taking a deep breath and taking breaks when you need them is KEY. I took a break at 25 questions, 50 questions, and finished in 75. You can do this!

I had 71% overall on UWorld. Finished today in 75 questions and did NOT get the good pop up with Pearson Vue. I feel sick. I had over 34 SATA, 5 drag and drop.

So far, one part of this is true. It shut off at 75. Scared to do the PVT though lol
