I see so many posts about the Pearson Vue Trick, I don't know what to believe. I wonder if it has ever been wrong and lead someone to believe they failed when they in fact, did pass or vice versa? Reading some of these posts make me wonder.
First, the Pearson Vue registration and payment software was never intended to be used to determine if you passed NCLEX. Prior to 2014 you could attempt to register for another test and if it prevented you from registering again, then that indicated that you passed. After 2014, you needed to complete the registration, including payment. That has added another layer for potential false pass/ false failure. Now you need to either make another payment and risk losing your $200 if you passed the first time or attempt to trick the system by using a pre-paid card without a balance or use the wrong exp. date. Unless we get a computer programmer that works for Pearson Vue, there is no true way of knowing if people attempting the "Pearson Vue Trick" are actually getting a true answer when they attempt it.
Why people waste their energy on this, instead of relying on the official results, the only results that matter, has always been beyond my comprehension.
