    Just wondering, most people who say they passed, say it stopped between 70-90. Im hoping to be stopped right at 75 haha.

    Also, if I'm taking my test in the evening, does anyone know how early in the morning, the next business day, the nremt site will have the results?

    Thanks

    anything is possible with the crazy nremt.

    I took mine at 7am and found out by 3pm. So if you take yours at night and not on a friday. You should know by the afternoon. SHOULD being the key word.

    yes.

    i think on certain tests they will throw in some "test" items (ie- ones that dont count towards your score but are potentially being evaluated for use in upcoming years), which would up the question count for particular takers, whether or not they have already "passed" or "failed."

    I used to tutor for the GMAT (ibanker in a former life!) and they were known for doing this. :ph34r:

    cheers,

    As I understand it, the test is looking for you to pass a ratio of correct/total answers having covered all appropriate sections and a minimum number of questions. You can pass quickly or pass late (120 questions) and you can fail quickly or fail late. In general, the test should end when you have definitively passed or failed, so if you're still going you probably haven't failed yet.

    Yes I just took my NREMT and passed going all the way to 120... Not sure if that means I barely passed but I guess I'll never know..

    Thats some bull because I got 120 questions and passed...My class thought the same thing because more people was passing who recieved 70 questions, but it really dosesnt matter.

    I passed @ question 123 for Basic. In our medic class so far everyone is passing between 60-80. 2 guys went to 150 with one passing and one failing. Honestly I've been told numerous times that your test might be the one where you might pass it early on, but you keep answering questions based on research and development. I suppose it's entirely possible.

    No telling, I've heard of passing with 70, failing with 70....passing at 120, also failing with 120....the test has to conclude that you are competent

    Currently, the maximum number of questions (excluding 10 or so "pilot questions" that don't count) that you can have is 120. And yes, it means you barely passed.

    The ones who were cut off close to the 70 range did very well and passed or very poorly and failed.

    who cares if you barely pass or kick it's booty... the point is you passed. Hopefully you do, you can fail miserably with 70, or barely pass with 80, 90, 100, 120... so the number of questions don't matter. Good luck!

    the question is do you know if you answered the last question correct or not. I was told if you answered the last question correct, you passed
