Got the good pop up, but..

  1. Hey,

    Took the NCLEX yesterday at 8am and have done the PVT at least 4x and still keep getting the good pop up I know its not official so I'm still anxious waiting to pay for the quick results on Thursday. This is my 2nd time taking the exam so the pressure was definitely on...


    Anyone else in the same boat?

    When exactly did you do the PVT? What state are you from?

    Hi Mag. I see. I really don't know what to tell you as I have not done it myself. I do think it is a glitch as I have read some posts here about people getting the "good pop-up" and yet receiving letters that they had failed. If you can't wait for the official result by mail, then Quick Result would be a good option. You're lucky because we don't have that here in California.

    I took the RN exam last Friday and opted to wait for the pass/fail letter. It is what it is, no need to stress. The downside is, if a person waits many days to many weeks for the result, it eats up time within the 45-day waiting period and you will be unsure if you should review again or not.

    I'm going to take it as a good sign Since I got the bad pop up the first time I took and actually failed. But I will come back and update you tomorrow when I check the quick results. I'm sorry CA doesn't offer quick results, makes no sense honestly. I couldn't imagine waiting weeks. When I failed the first time, I got to studying the following week and putting in my application to the BON to reschedule. I didn't want to prolong my 45 days more than I had to. Thanks for responding!

    Fingers crossed for the PVT trick!!! I've done it like 5 times since my exam already I finished at around 10:30 am yesterday so I'll try again in a few hours!!!!!!

    Thank you! I think the PVT trick works so that should help pass time before you get the official results. I'm sure you passed, keep me posted!
