Results on hold

  1. Ok so I took my NCLEX rn yesterday and didn't finish until 8 pm I got all the questions!! Last night it said test results on hold. Today it says test results not available. What does this mean??? Does anyone know if this is a good thing or bad thing?

    IT is neither good nor bad. A hold is put on any test that has something that needs further review, usually something like a palm scan that didn't take on the first try, or if you took extra breaks or if there was a problem with something at the testing site you knew nothing about. If something happened that raised a possibility of cheating the video and such is reviewed. Once they determine all is well they will release your test result to the board of nursing. Results Not Available shows for any state that doesn't participate in Quick Results (they will never be available on the website) or if it's too early for the QR purchase option. You can't get results in any event until the hold is lifted.

    Good luck!

    Thank you the palm reader couldn't read a couple times so maybe that's it. I did try the trick and got the good pop up and then I tried it again and it let me pay $200. So dowas this mean I more than likely failed?

    From reading on here it looks like the big majority of the time, when people pay the $200 it is because they have failed the test. In those cases, they will need another exam anyway so the $200 is not lost. There have been a couple, two or three that I saw, who paid the $200 and it turned out that they actually passed the test. For them, they were happy they passed the test but threw away $200 each. I guess you can't be sure until you get official results one way or the other. I wouldn't want to hold on to too many hopes, because it does seem to be a rare thing that someone pays the money and then passes. But hey, it does happen.
