Is it possible to run out of time on the paramedic national registry test and still pass? Or is that an automatic fail?

I believe if you time out, the exam hasn't asked you the appropriate number of questions and it would be an automatic fail

If you time out and you haven't been asked the minimum number of questions, you will automatically fail. If you're somewhere between the minimum and maximum number of questions, you may not automatically fail... it will depend upon how you did on the scored questions. So you may or may not have failed the exam.

What is the minimum and maximum number of questions? I ran out of time around 110-115. Is that within the range?

I believe the minimum is between 70-120 questions for it to be within 95% accuracy of your competency level. You can go out earlier or later, but between 70-120 is the minimum range where it can get accurate results on everyone.

Time expired for me today at like 107 questions. I've decided to simply not stress myself about this. If I gotta take it again, I'll take it a damned gain.
