Failed NCLEX first time with 265...

Hi all, I graduated this past December 2017 with my ADN degree. I signed up to sit for my NCLEX on February 7th because I had a job all lined up but needed to be licensed prior to onboarding. Anyway, a little history of me, I have severe test anxiety. All through my Nursing school career I would take my exams in the quiet testing room to avoid being distracted. I did U World the first time around and thought that I was doing well, had a high likelihood of passing, and a pretty good rank and percentage. Test day I had all 265 but knew before doing the PVT I had failed. It took me 35 minutes to leave that parking lot. Needless to say, I lost the job opportunity and really felt pretty down. All of my other classmates have passed to date, and it has been a very humbling experience. I have had people tell me they thought it was an "easy" exam, but I didn't think so at all. I know that my anxiety got the best of me, as I don't even remember reading the rules that stated that you could turn of the the timers in the corner. I got my CPR report back and it stated that I was near passing level in all 8 categories. I came across this site and purchased the 5 week course because by then it will be time to sit again, and hopefully pass this time. Any advice for someone like me?
