    Yeah she's really anxious. This is her 4th time taking the nclex. But yeah, the only thing that we can do is wait. Anyways, thank you so much for the info. I really appreciate it.

    I guess the only thing I could offer at this point is that merely having a 'hold' on the results doesn't mean she failed....doesn't mean she passed....it just "IS". Good luck to you mom!

    UPDATE: PEARSON MAY HAVE CHANGED THE TRICK!!!!!

    I have been reading everyone's post from the beginning and have fully believed in the message stating "our records indicate that you have recently scheduled this exam. Another registration cannot be made at this time" So I took my NCLEX RN at 12:30 yesterday afternoon. It shut off at 75 and I felt iffy, bouncing between feeling like I was guessing on everything to thinking of some I got right. Yesterday night at 5:00 I decided to enter my credit card number and got the good pop up "our records indicate...another registration cannot be made at this time". I was beyond myself happy that I felt 100% sure I passed. I wanted to reassure myself so an hour later I entered all my info again, and this time did not get the message. My heart dropped, in fear that now I hadn't passed?!?! this all isn't making sense and I'm losing my mind. How could I get the 100% proof of passing message the first time and now I don't? please help. I'm not sure if maybe Pearson is catching on or that they changed it to only giving you that passing message once. I'm beside myself and praying I passed based on my first look. I wish I had never kept checking. Please, if you have an info on this chime in.

    The PVT is not 100% proof of pass/fail, as you have now learned. The only 100% is official results. You could have easily been "passing" at 5:00, and at second scoring "failed," as it is scored twice before results are released.

    When you entered your credit card number a second time (very bad idea, btw, as you only increase the odds that you GET the card charge to go through)....what message DID you get? Did you pay $200 for a new registration? Did you get a "card declined" message?

    Nothing has changed recently regarding PVT; it has ALWAYS been a crapshoot. Since the majority of the time people got the results they expected, or the results matched the PVT message, "it worked". Doing it prematurely, as you most definitely did, increases the likelihood you will not have anything remotely 'accurate'.

    Every exam undergoes a QA review during the 24 hours following the exam. Your initial score is determined the moment the computer stops; sometimes the QA determines a different result is warranted. Thus, someone who does the PVT immediately post-test and gets one pop up will often get a different pop up if they repeat the game. Anything 'on the fence' can flip a result.

    People who get ONLY the minimum number of questions, however, are NOT "on the fence". You clearly passed, or clearly failed. Unfortunately, the PVT is not 100%, so you shouldn't rejoice or despair until you get ACTUAL results. Are Quick Results available in your State?

    Do you guys know if the PVT status can change on weekends? Coz as what I mentioned in previous post, my mom took her board last Wednesday. Since that day her PVT says "The candidate has exam results that are hold." Someone told me that Pearson usually puts the result on hold from 48-72 hours. Today is her 3rd day after taking her test. Do you guys think it's because it's weekend today?

    Weekends are irrelevant. It's a computerized system. Holds DO usually take somewhere between 24 and 72 hours....they can take longer. Two people in recent memory had to wait a week. Just how it is...I'm sorry, I know it's incredibly frustrating, but your mother can do NOTHING of value on this until she gets official results. The PVT is worthless to her at this point; more than likely she will be able to pay regardless of passing/failing status. She should avoid that game now.

    I can't recall if you said whether Quick Results are available in your State...? If they are, do THAT after the hold is lifted. NOT the pvt. Otherwise....wait for the official results. Good luck!
