You guys are not going to believe what I had to go through to take my NCLEX exam. I took it in San Antonio, and on the day and time that I was to take my test, there happened to be another woman with the same first name as mine, although it was spelled different(Sherri and Sherry). The last names were different, but apparently the test center didn't check that before she put me in the system...she saw the other woman's name and put me in as that person. So, of course the other woman shows up and they call the main office and decide that we will test under each other's names and it will be corrected in the computer. SCARY, HUH?!!!! Well, I'm wondering if I'm going to get my test grade or the other Sherry's test grade, but they assured me that it was all taken care of, so I went in to sit for my boards with the other Sherry's name...Fast forward to twenty questions into my test, and the exam moderator comes in and taps me on the shoulder and tells me that I'm taking the wrong test, that I need to stop and start ALL OVER AGAIN!!!!! It so happens that the other Sherry was taking the RN and I was sitting for the LPN exam. This was the most stressful day of my life...the only good thing was that I did pass even after all that.
And to think...it could have all been prevented if the test site had only done what they were supposed to and actually LOOKED at my driver's license and ATT paper. I'd love to hear from you guys on this.
