My Prometric Exam Experience

I've been MIA with blogging lately because I really had to focus on other stuff. I had to focus on this because I needed to pass the exam for me to be able to apply for work abroad. I took my Saudi Prometric Exam. Most of my friends told me that this exam was a lot easier compared to other types of Nursing exams. But I don't want to underestimate it so even for a limited time, I tried to study and practiced answering exam questions. I used Saunders and Kaplan NCLEX Q and A as my material since I was told that the exam was similar to NCLEX. Honestly, I wasn't able to review everything. I just practiced answering the questions and read the rationale then did a little review. When I took the exam, I wasn't really that prepared but I can say that I have studied fairly. LOL

The process of applying for the exam was really easy because everything was done online. If you already have an agency, they will give you a step by step procedure which was my case so it was easy for me. But you have to pay via credit card (Visa, Mastercard and American Express). If you don't have one, you can ask your parents, siblings or friends as a favor for that matter. The fee for the exam is $90.

You can choose the date and time of your exam so I opted to take the exam at 1 pm because I was afraid I might get late if I took the exam earlier in the morning since my place is far from the testing area and I anticipated the traffic. So on the day of my exam, I arrived an hour and a half earlier. Better early than sorry. LOL There is a Starbucks in front of the testing area so I stayed there while waiting for my time. I ate my snack and reviewed a little to avoid boredom. But as time goes by, I could feel my nervousness and anxiety. I was really hoping and praying that I would pass the exam and that the questions that would come out are the things that I've reviewed.

 While waiting...

During the exam, my heart was beating so fast. I was really nervous. But I had to contain it and focus on the questions. I tried my best to calm down and relax for me to understand and analyze the questions very well. The last question was really heart stopping because the moment you finished your exam, you know you'll get the results. So when I was done, I really prayed hard.
So when the result came out, I couldn't believe it! I made it!

You'll know that the test taker passed when he/she went out the testing room smiling. And so I did! LOL... I couldn't explain the feeling. All I knew was I was one step closer in reaching my dreams.

After the exam, you'll get a certificate wherein the breakdown of your score was indicated. The total test item was 70 and passing rate for Nurse Technician was 45% and 50% for the Nurse Specialist. On my case, I took the Nurse Technician.
