bad pop up on NCLEX and passed

Posted

Hi everyone. I have taken boards for the second time on 9/11/14. As soon as I went to my car, I did the Pearson vue trick and it took me to the cc page AGAIN!! Needless to say I sobbed all day. The next morning a friend of mine asked me if I heard anything yet and I told him about the bad pop up. He said, "that cant be a legit answer." So, he looked on the PA state website and there it was!! Registered nurse- license ACTIVE!!! I wasn't even going to look because I was certain I failed again. I have known maybe 4 people this has happened to and I am now the 5th. The Pearson vue trick doesn't work 100% of the time.

You're not doing the PVT correctly. You have to submit payment now. Everyone goes to the CC page.

The cc page never came up for friends who have taken the test and passed. I heard that Pearson vue has caught on and is allowing everyone to put their cc info in now. Does anyone know if that's true?

If they took the test and passed prior to Pearson Vue revamping their site, then they would get the 'old' way for the trick. Good pop up if you passed, to the CC page if they failed.

After the revamp everyone goes to the CC page (a friend just took it a few days ago and did the 'new' trick and got the 'good' pop up after entering her CC info. She found out she passed Friday w/the quick results).

So yes, everyone has to enter CC info for the new 'trick' to work. But you run the risk of being charged the $200 if you failed.

Sr20alex is right! Back then when your friend took their test the pearson vue site wasnt updated yet, and the good and bad popup are still accurate, but now since you just took your exam recently the website have change since aug 23 and the pvt change for everyone, now everyone goes to the CC page. In order for you to see the good popup you have to enter your CC info and click "submit" then if you pass, a good popup will show up, and if you fail it will charge your catd--meaning you failed. Nowadays alot of people are doing the trick incorrectly because once they see the CC page they automatically think they failed. Well theyre wrong. You have to input CC info and submit thats the proper way of the new trick! :)

so it's possible to get the "bad pop up" and pass the nclex?
