can You tell me how the PVT works? what is a good pop up. verses a bad pop up. Took the test Saturday, it stopped at 228 questions. Feeling stressed
There are a lot of posts on the PVT trick.
I'm definitley no expert, but I'll tell you how I did it. First wait until 24hrs AFTER your exam. This is key. Then you go on Pearson Vue site and attempt to re-register for the exam.
You have to put in all your information again including payment information. And you submit it.
I've read some people use gift cards instead of their debit cards or wrong expiration dates, or cards with insufficient funds so they won't get charged. (Just in case) I personally used all my real card information and took the risk.
Once you submit payment (you need to press submit twice)
You will get a pop up. Either it will let you re register for the exam and take your money (likely did not pass), or it will not. (Likely pass)
The good pop up states, "our records indicate you have already registered for this exam. Another registration can not be done at this time."
The "bad pop up" could be a declined card, or a Reciept saying you just paid to take the exam again. (Basically it let you re-register)
There is also a possibility it will say a "hold" has been placed which means nothing, could be pass could be fail.
If you do this before 24hrs it might just take your money regardless of pass or fail. So I suggest waiting.
I got the good pop up and I passed. Also know that this could cost you $200.00 but from what I read and experienced as long as you wait the 24hrs it's doubtful you will get charged if you have passed.
In short if your state doesn't have quick results like mine (CA) it was worth it to try.
