Accuracy of the Ora-Quick Advance HIV Test?

Don't ask me why, but over the last year I have had the test taken 5 times, each time a negative result. I heard the accuracy is at 92 percent though, so I was wondering... How does that work? Would taking it many times (I don't know if this makes sense) cancel out that 8 percent failure rate, or at least drastically reduce it. Since it's highly unlikely that it failed to hit that 8 percent five times...

I don't really know how to put this?

If you had an exposure your 3 month post exposure test would be conclusive.
