Good luck! We all hope you passed. We just don't like to discuss the PVT. It's like Fight Club.

There are no absolutes especially with attempting to circumvent the registration glitch commonly referred to as the PVT prior to the 24 hour mark. All tests go through a second scoring within 24 hours post exam. It's not recommended to attempt again if you received such a pop up as it only increases the error potential.

The only accurate results are via paid quick results or from your board of nursing.

There's nothing more you can do now but hurry up and wait for official results.

I just took the NCLEX-RN today. Tried the PVT and it said "Payment was declined-Contact your financial institution.... Does this mean I failed?

No this means your payment was declined and you did not lose $200

It works, look at the YouTube videos but you should have gotten a message something like , you are already scheduled for this exam and it shouldn't even ask you to pay again

Except for when it doesn't.

Bottom line, SMiller, is that MOST of the time if your card is declined (using invalid card info) it will mean you failed. HOWEVER, there have been enough instances of people having just your experience who ultimately DID pass (when they got official notice from their State BoN) that I wouldn't go crazy just yet. It's really not as good an indicator as it once was, prior to August 2014.

At this point, take some deep breaths, go do something to get your mind off of all this, and pay the $8 for Quick Results when they are available to you. THEN you will know if you should despair or celebrate.

Good luck!

When you search on AN and see the thousands of other threads on this very same topic, what do those tell you?

The PVT does not work.

False. It works the majority of the time. Just because it bothers you that these PVT threads pop up all the time doesnt make it invalid. Just because it didnt work for the one person that one time doesnt erase the 99.9% of times it has worked.

The declined CC means you most likely failed. I used a fake exp date and I got the good pop up instead of the declined pop up and I passed.

Don't forget the matching socks. There is another thread on this very board where the poster was told to wear matching socks, did the PVT and PASSED!

It works I tell you, it WORKS!

People keep saying it isn't accurate. I have no idea. All I can tell you is I tested today and I got the good pop up. I will let you know in 48hrs if I really did pass with the quick results.

Let me clarify.

You must wear matching socks when you do the PVT immediately after completing your test. Do not wait 24 hours to risk your $200 on this uber-reliable method of demonstrating your impatience with the system. PeasonVue thanks you.

This is all I know.
