NREMT exams don't work that way. It's a progressive exam where the difficulty of your next question is based off of whether you got the previous question right or wrong. Once you've reached a certain level of proven proficiency in all of the topics or reached a point where it is impossible to reach it, the exam shuts off automatically.

So what is that proven proficiency? I understand the principles of computer adaptive testing. But I know there is also a percentage, b/c my instructor mentioned one, I just don't remember the number. Between 70 and 80%. I know that, through your responses, the NR has to feel 95% sure you are competent in all areas.

the percentage is more right than wrong. But passing is dependent on the computer's algorithmic estimation that you will continue to answer more right than wrong ad infinitum.

When I said "you", I was not referring to a post. I meant the general "you" when taking the test. That info is off the NREMT.org website.
