Help!! I'm freaking out. Took the NCLEX yesterday and it stopped at 86 questions. I am so afraid that I failed. A fellow nurse told me that if I tried to re register and it doesn't let me, that means I passed? So upon leaving the testing center, I tried. And it let me. That mean its true or it simply means its too early to tell?? Someone pls, advice?? Thanks

Too early to tell. Number of questions is not indicative of pass or fail.

Did you enter your credit card number? If you didn't enter your CC number then you didn't do the trick correctly. Everybody goes to the registration page now (as of Aug 2014, I think). Search this site -- there are PLENTY of posts about the trick.

No. Late August 2014, Pearson Vue updated its registration software. It did not "fix the trick"; the trick is just a trick. As of now, it works much as it did before, but a little differently.

There are approximately a thousand threads on this topic on this forum alone, if you want to learn more.

To each of you who is doing the PVT right after leaving the exam: you aren't doing this correctly, so no one can help you with what you want to know, which is 'did I pass'?

I *CAN* help you, however, by telling you that in order to know anything via the PVT you have to WAIT 24 HOURS. Not a half hour. Not 20 hours. Twenty-four hours.

Your exam is scored twice; those of you who jump the gun and insist on doing the PVT right after you finish the test have a good indication of what your first score (and ONLY your first score) is.

If you find your credit card is charged $200 before the 24-hr wait is up, all you know is you failed the first scoring. And spent $200, which you may or may not have wasted. If your second score is a pass, you'll be pleasantly surprised to find this out later.....and have thrown away $200.

If your second score is a fail, also, then no harm done as you would have needed to pay for another exam anyway.

EVERYONE who does the PVT is directed to the credit card page. It isn't until you press "submit" (and agree to the non-refundable terms of payment) that you get either a popup that you cannot make another registration at this time (good) or get a receipt for payment (bad).

It's worth the 8 dollars to me if you have to wait 24 hours either way 😂

I tried to post my payment and a pop up saying I'm already registered for an exam and I can't re register popped up. Is that the GOOD sign? Does that mean I passed??

My personal take on all of this is if you have the opportunity to just pay eight bucks and find out for CERTAIN if you passed (that's what the fee is for, after all: official results) you'd be silly NOT to! 24 hours and you have the trick to go on; the registration software 'thing' that allows you to guess reasonably well as to whether you have passed. Forty-eight hours, and zero guessing if QR is an option in your State :)
