I just took the NCLEX and it shut off at 75 questions. I wanted so bad to answer more to prove that I was not an idiot. Mainly they were priority and psych questions. I know everyone thinks they did bad when they finish, but I really think I did bad because they kept throwing the same type of questions at me. That seems to me like I was getting them wrong so instead of going on to something else they wanted to make sure I didn't know the answers to that type of question. I just don't see how they can judge us on only 75 questions. If I had the choice I would have taken the 'old fashioned pencil & paper all day long' exam!

bwaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahahahaha !!! :rotfl:
Exactly how I felt, my friend ! ALL THAT for THIS ???? (only I had maybe 85 questions)............... all those long years of sacrificing EVERYTHING and studying 24/7 while working fulltime, too.... for a measly 80 something questions???
I wanted to keep going on as well. "Hey ! They didn't ask me this!", and "Hey ! They didn't even ask me THAT " !!!................ all the way home in the car.
I got over it as soon as I got my results in the mail. :balloons:
Never gave it another thought.
I know exactly how you feel. I took the test july 13...still no results and I only got 75 questions. They mainly focused on psych and prioritization. When the computers shut off I felt horrible. The good news is that everyone that I talked to said 75 questions usually means you passed. Good luck
I hope so!!! Good luck to you too!!!
Doesn't feel fair ... does it. But as previously stated ... if it shuts off at 75 you either were soooo bad that it is mathmatically impossible for you to pass, or you will be adding RN to you name in no time. Be happy :)
Just found out I PASSED!!!
I kept reading everyone who only got 75 questions on this board passed, but I just felt so bad after the exam. Not anymore!
Good luck to everyone else!

Be glad that you didn't have to answer 1,000 questions...and wait two months for the results like I did! I was in the last group to take the National Test Pool Exam back in 1981....and the Boards took TWO days to take!
Wow... did you wait for two months for your test result to come out??? and your board exam took 2 days... is it still written exam back in 1981???
Congrat's Becca, I was the same way and had all the doubts you had. Now we are new Nurses.
Just found out I PASSED!!! I kept reading everyone who only got 75 questions on this board passed, but I just felt so bad after the exam. Not anymore! Good luck to everyone else!
