PVT 2018. Does it still work?

  1. Hello,
    I need help.
    I took NCLEX RN yesterday on 2/28/18
    It was my 4th time.

    After exam, i did PVT but it was a "bad pop up" (Credit cared was declined)
    Two hours later, I did it again once i received an email from Pearsonvue.
    It was a"bad pop up" again. I was very devastating!! I thought i was well prepared and i felt really comfortable while I was solving the problems.

    I am in MA, and i can check the quick result for tomorrow

    Does PVT 2018 still work in 2018?


    1st time: 7/25/17 bad pop up FAILED with 76 questions
    2nd time: 9/9/17 "HOLD" pop up FAILED with 265 questions
    3rd time: 11/21/17 "bad pop up" FAILED with 265 questions

    But what about 2018...?

    This time, my last question was shut off at 94, and the question was "priority"

    The PVT worked for me this past weekend. Seems like you might have failed but the PVT isn't always accurate.

    What do you do to prepare for the NCLEX?

    Hrmmm... When you look at your performance reviews have you focused on your weak points? Or do you try and just do comprehensive quizzes?

    I did PVT for three times and 2/3 were accurate
    Both times I got a bad pop up and ended up failing
    But one time, I had a HOLD pop up and still failed

    Yeah, it seems like you might have not passed this time around. :/ The third you attempted the PVT trick - because your test was still on hold, the system didn't know whether you were or weren't eligible to take the exam again. So sorry!

    Give us an update. I will be seeing mine too tomorrow. Am not too curious though.
    Best of luck.

    I took NCLEX RN on February 28 at 8AM. The computer stopped at 75 and special research questions followed with 16 questions. I walked out of the testing center at 9:30AM. I did the pearson vue trick after 10 mins and it says an open registration is still opened and registartion cannot be made at this time. An hour after, I received an email from Pearson Vue telling that I just finished the exam. Then, I did the PVT again and it says "Our records indicate that you recently scheduled this exam. Another regustration cannot be made at this time" it means a good pop out. I checked it hourly up to now 50 hours later it is still a good pop out and I havent yet quick results available. I am so worried why 48 hours had elapsed but still no quick results in my pearson vue account.

    @sekim627 Did you find out if you passed? Did the PVT work?
