But its called the pearson vue trick.. and pearson says its not accurate?

LOL, that doesn't mean PEARSON gave it that name. It's a CYA type of situation. As soon as they tell you that the "trick" works and then you run to a public message board and proclaim that you heard it straight from the horses mouth and THEN the trick fails to works for someone----well, do you really think Pearson wants to be on the hook for that?

Personally I can't believe you contacted Pearson and asked them this question....

one of my classmates did...and when she called Pearson about it they admitted that it was an easy way for them to make $200 because if you did the trick, re-registerd and paid and then found out you passed they don't give you the $200 back...

Sorry, but if you're foolish enough to send off another $200 to register for an exam you think you failed based on an unofficial "trick", then you deserve to lose that $.

I'm glad the "trick" worked for me...my classmate that wanted me to do it would've owed my money!

Yeah I already knew I failed once I got the cc page. I'm not doubting the PVT coz my friend took it last Thursday and I told her to do the trick and led her to cc page and when she got the unofficial result she failed. My bf just keep telling me not to lose hope and just wait for the real result.

I had to put in my info before the "good pop up" came. When I tried to re register, it went to the CC page, then I entered my info, then said the "please contact your BON".

When I registered the first time for the exam, it asks to confirm your info, hence some people, like ME-who is FAR from DUMB-that had to repeat the same steps in order to get the "good pop up" OK?

So if you press submit after entering the CC info, and you get the good pop up, your CC doesn't go through.

I will agree, it's best to either wait or pay for the quick results. I did the quick results because one of my classmates wanted to know and kept bothering me about it; mind you I have taken the NCLEX before successfully, so I was willing to wait; never heard about the PVT, I just kept looking on the BON site, then did it with my classmate over the phone, playing cheerleader. It took two business days for it to appear...took NCLEX on a Thursday, was on the BON Tuesday morning 12:10 am. 🙂

I swear I wasn't calling you dumb! : ) However, that's not how the trick is supposed to work... I'm wondering if it's either different in your state or if you are just not remembering correctly. I just did it a few weeks ago. I've seen like a billion posts about the PVT dating back several years and they all say the same thing. Enter your demographic info, submit it - and if you passed, you get the good pop up. If you didn't, you get to the part where you can enter your credit card info. If you actually had to risk being charged an extra $200 in order to perform the trick I don't think it would be nearly as popular as it is...

That being said, I totally didn't believe that I passed and had to pay for quick results anyway. I got my results in the mail a few days later - if I had known they would come that soon I would have saved myself the $8. To be honest, I don't understand why they can't do instant unofficial results like they do for the GRE.

I know you wasn't 🙂 but we have to realize that states are different, I got the CC page, and I my classmate who walked me through it told me to act like I was scheduling the exam, put EVERYTHING in...the OP in the post who stated the PVT was wrong had the SAME thing happen... *shrug* either way, it's water under the bridge. :yes:

As far as instant results, NEVER seeing that happen. They still have to verify whether the person was not cheating, standards in the exam, measuring new exam questions, etc. We have been prepared with nursing exams to wait. If anything, some of us don't have to wait up to two months for results or took the test over two days like our seasoned generations before us. We can wait. :yes:

Well cc page is accurate!!!! Paid for the quick result today then status "fail". I didn't study at all so I didn't expect it to pass on the first try. Wanted to see and to feel how it was like taking the nclex first. Now I know what to work on, I didn't know I had a really bad test anxiety until I took the NClex. Lol. Taking the exam again at the end of August. Good luck taking the NCLEX. For those who failed like I did, sometimes God just have another plan for us first. :)

So you don't actually know anyone this happened to though, correct? Because while I know it has happened in a few isolated cases, this is very uncommon. It's not a plot to get you to pay them more money. You do not need to put any credit card information into the computer in order to perform the Pearson Vue trick, so there's no way for them to charge you unless you are dumb enough to enter this information and then procede to submit it.

yes, I DO know someone - my classmate called me 24 hours after taking our test on a Saturday crying because she thought she failed because it took her to the CC screen. She waited till Monday morning, and called PearsonVue for the quick result and when she asked why it took her to the CC screen the Pearson rep told her exactly what I posted.
