What were your UWorld/Kaplan/Archer scores?

Hello! I've been studying for the NCLEX since around March. I was hoping for someone to look at my scores and share theirs; my test is on May 24. I know scores aren't everything but I'd like to hear from some people who also used these prep programs and whether they passed/failed, since all I've seen on some websites are NCLEX horror stories and it scares me. I know scores aren't everything but I have crippling Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder and cannot help but feel inadequate with them.

What I DO have going for me is I'm known as a generally good test taker, and I've seen consistent improvement in my work since I started really studying (I originally started in January at a 54-55% average in UWorld and Kaplan, am around 60% now) so I DO feel like I'm getting somewhere. I'm just worried because I'm not as high as other test-takers I've seen. I don't know it

I'm using UWorld, Kaplan, and Archer for practice questions, and Simple Nursing, Mark Klimek for content. Going to try High Yield too.

UWorld: (Entire QBank Complete)
Overall QBank score: 60% (UWorld reports passing score at 92% at a 56% QBank average)
Self Assessment 2: 58%, "High" chance of passing. Taken May 9.

Kaplan: (QBank 70% Completed)
Overall QBank score: 60% (60% is target score)
First 6 Question trainers: 59%, 65%, (Jan), 56% (April), 60%, 63%, 58% (May) (worried because I heard you're supposed to get, like, 60%-65%? 😥)
RN Practice Test: 73% 
NCLEX sample tests: 56%, 56%, 83% (prioritization), 30% (the alternate format one that everyone fails) (Taken in May)

ARCHER: (QBank 90% Complete)
Qbank: 59% (60% is high predictability of passing NCLEX)
Self-Assessments: 7 "Very High" in a row (4 or more in a row indicates 99% pass rate according to archer, I don't know if I believe that)

 

Am I going to get eaten alive? Thanks! 😅

Do you mind me asking how it went for you? I have similar Kaplan scores, have been scoring 60-67% but mostly low 60s on 75 Qs/day. I am super stressed that I'm not doing enough.

I passed in 75 questions in less than 40 minutes 🙂

Wow, congratulations!! I'm so happy for you!

Do you have any tips for additional studying or just any insight? I feel like I am also struggling with constantly feeling inadequate and like I am doomed to fail. Not that you have to provide any advice, it just gives me hope that we have similar scores for Kaplan!
