Syllabus and Pattern

The NCLEX exam requires that you answer at-least 75 questions. Based on how you’re performing in the exam you will be given more questions to answer. NCLEX is a Computer Adaptive Exam. The adaptive nature of the test means that the level of difficulty of questions increases if your answers are correct and decreases if your answers are incorrect. The range of questions is 75 – 265.

Out of minimum 75 questions, 60 are counted towards score and 15 are experimental. One cannot identify which are experimental hence all the questions are to be answered as if they are part of score. The maximum time for the test is six hours. There is a ten minute break two and half hours and another one after fourth hour.
