What are the odds of me passing when the computer shut off at 199 or 200? i didnt run out of time because i know i had at least 30 mins left. please help! im so nervous about failing.....

From what I read the computer lets you go that far if it feels like you're "near passing level" and will continue giving you questions until it's sure you are above passing level. Remember, the number of questions has no bearing on passing or failing. Also take into consideration what types of questions you see. I think analysis/application type of questions are higher level of questions and the difficult SATA questions are also higher level. I say this because I didn't get a lot of SATA, but I only got 1 med, and a bunch of application/analysis, and priority type of questions but failed at the minimum of 85 questions.

how could you fail if you had "higher" types of questions.... ive had several SATA questions, lots of medsmaternity and peds questions, also, delegations and prioritizations.... im just really scared

This may sound a bit 'simple' or blunt. But you fail if you answer enough questions incorrectly. The type of question doesn't matter. Your chances are 50/50, in all honesty. If the computer shut off at whatever number with time remaining on the clock, that means that the system finally was able to make a determination one way or another.

Good luck to you. All you can do now is wait...
