If you feel confident you probably did pass !Just took the EMT-B and it closed right at 70 questions... Like many here I felt like I didn't do well, that my class didn't prepare me, and that perhaps 70 was enough to get a 95% confidence that I didn't know my stuff... I'll know in a day or two and report back!
Congrats ! Good luck for the future !Passed! It does seem that if the test stops right at 70 questions, chances are you did pretty well. My guess is that because it's progressive, if you do well you see a higher percentage of the hard questions. That's probably why most of the 70-question-pass folks I'm reading about seem to think the test was way harder than any of the coursework leading up to it.
I guess this is good news for anyone who finished right at 70 - if you know your stuff and it felt way harder than the class, you probably passed. Have a beer and worry less. You'll know in a day .
Precisely.EMT-B: 70ish questions and spent about 35 min taking the exam. I legitimately thought I failed. The adaptive nature of this exam makes it so that it's pretty hard regardless of your level. It's slightly disorienting. I did pass on my first attempt.
The more certain the algorithm is at crediting you the ability to pass, the higher number of very difficult questions you will receive. In the end, don't freak out thinking you failed until you get the results. If you fail, just retake it. Seems to me from reading this forum, any number of questions can result in a pass or fail. Just prepare well. If you do, you'll probably get a ridiculous number of difficult questions, be shut down at around 70, feel like you failed, but pass. Preparing is the way to go though.
Just because you answer 120 questions doesn't mean you failed. It does seem to me based on fellow classmates performances, people who were more prepared did get shut down at around 70 and did say the test was much more difficult than they had anticipated.
