The NCLEX (National Council Licensure Examination) is a standardized exam that nursing candidates must pass to become licensed as a Registered Nurse (RN) or Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN) in the United States. While waiting for your official results, it's natural to look for signs that you may have passed the exam. However, it's important to remember that only the official results can confirm whether you've passed or not.

That being said, here are some positive signs that you might have done well on the NCLEX:

1. You answered the minimum number of questions: The NCLEX uses a Computerized Adaptive Testing (CAT) format, which means the number of questions you receive depends on your performance. For the NCLEX-RN, the minimum number of questions is 75, and for the NCLEX-PN, it's 85. If your exam ended after the minimum number of questions, it could be a sign that you performed well.

2. You received a variety of question types: The NCLEX includes multiple-choice, multiple-response, fill-in-the-blank, and other question formats. If you encountered a mix of question types, it could indicate that you were answering questions correctly and progressing through the exam.

3. You felt challenged by the questions: The CAT format adjusts the difficulty of questions based on your performance. If you felt that the questions were challenging, it could mean that you were performing well, and the exam was presenting you with more difficult questions.

4. You had a strong foundation in nursing knowledge: If you felt confident in your understanding of nursing concepts and principles during the exam, it's a good sign that you were well-prepared.

5. You managed your time effectively: Time management is crucial during the NCLEX. If you were able to pace yourself and answer questions without feeling rushed, it could be a positive sign.

However, it's essential to reiterate that these signs are not definitive indicators of passing the NCLEX. The only way to know for sure if you have passed is to wait for your official results from the testing organization. Stay patient and try to stay positive while you wait for your results.
