What does it mean when your Nclex shuts off at 85 questions?

If the computer shut off when you were at question 85 or even 76, don't panic and interpret this as a sign you didn't pass the exam. Your test will only continue until you've reached the minimum passing standard; therefore, it won't immediately shut off if you've dipped below the pass rate.

Also know, what percentage of Nclex questions is passing?

According to a recent release from the NCSBN, the passing logit score for the NCLEX-RN (through 2019) is 0.00. Basically, this means that you need to be answering the medium difficulty questions correctly at least 50% of the time to pass.

Additionally, what are considered higher level questions on Nclex? The RN version requires that you answer at least 75 questions and no more than 265. In contrast, you will need to answer a minimum of 85 questions on the PN exam, with a maximum of 205 questions.

Similarly, what does it mean if the Nclex shuts off at 75 questions?

For the NCLEX- RN to shut off at 75 means you either did very well or very bad. It only fails an tester at 75 if they are unable to correctly answer more than a few questions in a row. The test is designed to keep giving you chances to succeed (up until 265 questions).

Is it common to fail Nclex at 75 questions?

If your performance is at or above the passing threshold or cutoff line, then you passed. If it lies below it, you failed. Bottom line: If you passed your NCLEX and got cut off at 75 questions then you did a great job. If you failed at 75 questions, then you really made of mess of it.
