This candidate currently has test results that are on hold?

  1. Took the NCLEX this morning and when I try to do that "trick" it says "This candidate currently has test results that are on hold. A new registration cannot be completed at this time." Then when I go to my history it shows a successful delivery but in red it says "Your exam results are not available at this time." It cut off in about 50 minutes at 75 questions and with the massive amount of SATA, I am pretty sure I failed but I was just wondering what that meant. I did use the scribble paper they gave me on one of my math questions, and there was a survey at the end of the test, so maybe that has something to do with it? Thanks for any help.

    It could mean review of anything but the survey is there for everyone. Did you erase your board or anything like that? They may just be reviewing video and it doesn't mean you failed. Keep your chin up and hopefully you get good results soon.

    You probably passed. You got the minimum questions and a lot of SATA. SATA are the hardest so you must have been taking the test at a high level. Good luck!!!

    I've been told Pearson can place a hold on test results if they notice an unusual response pattern from the test taker.

    One of my nursing instructors told us that a girl from a previous class had a hold placed on her results because she suffers from massive test anxiety and bombed the first portion of her test (dropping her way below the passing line) but then recovered and did phenomenally well on the rest of her questions until the test shut off. To the computer and the test reviewer, this looks like a student who had no business taking the NCLEX suddenly turned into a nursing savant mid-exam. Hence, the hold. Not to say you have test anxiety or did anything similar, just sharing some additional info.

    I have the same thing but I know I failed. There is absolutely no chance I passed.

    What happened? Did you already get your results?

    why is it that you feel this way?

    I just know I did horrible. I've never felt that bad about a test. I knew nothing, it was awful!

    Thanks for the replies. It now says "Our records indicate that you have recently scheduled this exam. Please contact your Member Board for further assistance. Another registration cannot be made at this time." So I guess that is positive? I hope. It says the exam results are not available in my history but it does say "delivery successful". I am just waiting to pay for the fast results. Has anyone heard of this "trick" not working?
