Is it possible for Allnurses to contact an IT person at Pearson Vue that is involved in the payment section of their website and have them write an article about how their payment processing works? That way we can eliminate all the guessing about if the "trick" worked for test takers. While I realize that the payment system for Pearson was never intended to be used as a PASS/FAIL for test takers, it has endured as the unofficial results indicator for years. There is a never ending guessing as to the correct process to indicate a Pass or Fail. Do you have to wait 24 hrs? Do you have to use a valid credit card? Do you have to say "Beetlejuice" three times before submitting your payment? (child of the 80s reference).
Thanks for the suggestion - however, as alluded to by countless posters sometimes this "trick" works and sometimes it doesn't.
