Pearson Vue Trick 2014 New Interface

Updated | Posted

I just took my NCLEX PN in the state of California. I attempted the Pearson Vue "Trick" and entered all my info: if I've taken the NCLEX before, what school, date graduated. I did not get the "good pop up" when I hit the submit button. I was directed to enter my CC info and once I hit submit I got the message in red as follows: Pearson4.jpg

I've seen on a couple of websites that this is the new Pearson Vue Interface effective Aug 27, 2014.

I was wondering if anyone else had this same thing happen and if they passed the NCLEX PN?

I took NCLEX RN today and got the same pop up after i entered all of my credit info and answered all the questions. I really hope i passed! (crossing fingers)

New to this site and didn't see any threads earlier due to user failure. LOL I guess this "trick" was exactly that, a trick and does not work. Unfortunately I'll have to wait another 3-4 weeks minimum to find out the results. I guess I'll just continue to study until then to keep readily prepared for anything! Good luck to all!

If you read more about the new pvt, that's what they are saying is the new "good" pop up. Because it is new, no one knows how accurate it is. I too am from Ca and took my exam on 9/4/14 and been waiting to get that letter. BTW, I got that same pop up as you.

I hate how CA doesn't provide quick results like other states provide. Hoping we passed our exams! It was truly nerve wrecking.

I know! After finishing my exam, I really thought I failed and I didn't even want to check the pvt. When I finally had the courage to do it, I got that pop up and I did it every day since and still got that same pop up. I'm hoping and praying that this trick is accurate for me just like it has been for many.

Hopefully it is! I am the first to take the NCLEX in my class. So the pressure was definitely on. I felt like the entire time I studied the wrong material after graduation. I can't wait to find out. Did you take PN or RN? I wonder if there's another way of finding out. I heard you can ask the BONVNPT for another Approval to test code and they'll either give you one, indicating that you failed or tell you that they cannot provide you one or unknown reasons, which means you most likely passed...how accurate that is, I have no clue? I also wonder if they post your license number on the site once you have passed or do they wait until you pay for the license itself? So much running on my mind! :nailbiting:

I don't think they post anything online until we pay for the fee. I also heard about calling them for another ATT number, but I don't know how to do that. I heard people wait hours and I really don't wanna be on the phone for that long lol. But someone in my class took their exam on the 8/11/14 and got their results within 2 weeks.

Yes, this is the new PVT. You probably passed so just relax and wait for BVNPT to send your a letter. I know how you feel. I took the NCLEX-PN on September 3rd and I've been getting the good pop up every day. I really felt like I passed when the screen went blue. I live in Cali and it's sad that we can't get quick results. While I feel like I passed, it will still be nice to see it in writing.

Yes I hate how CA does it. I still get the same pop up. I did see this Saturday, Sept 13th, PV will have a maintenance site down. So who knows what will happen then. :banghead:

I'm a little skeptical about the new PVT, It seems everyone has been getting the "good pop up" I don't feel confident i passed, but when i came home and tried the trick, i got the good pop up.

I did not get the good pop up today after trying many many times I entered my cc and the wrong last number and it kept saying my card was invalid which is supposed to mean you failed well... Just looked at my Bon site and I passed

I was wondering the same thing...I haven't heard of anyone yet whose credit card info went through and they failed/passed...it almost sounds as if everyone gets the good pop up

Update:

I have tried the trick several times and my bank finally deactivated 2 of my cards due to a fraud alert. I still am receiving the triangle "good pop-up". I have not been charged by my bank for $200. Just wanted to share this information as I don't want others to have their card deactivated on them when you're at the gas station trying to pump gas and get declined because the bank deactivated your cards.

What this means is that the system first checks to see if the card is actually valid. It probably doesn't put a hold on funds at that point. That's something the bank/credit card issuer can see even though you're not being charged. So, based on this info, I think it kind of goes like this:

Enter Credit Card info, click submit. The system probably does something like this...

1) Query bank - is card valid?

2) If yes, proceed to next step. If no, stop process and issue "Invalid card" statement.

3) Query current results. If "pass" then stop process and issue "good popup" statement, if "fail" then proceed to next step

4) Submit charge to bank, obtain confirmation number, display payment completed screen.

To me, that's the logical steps that the system does. I'd have designed a slightly different process that would have been slightly more aggravating, but this looks like what they're doing with this new process.

If you enter the wrong info, it will automatically tell you have an invalid cc.

I have received "invalid CC" too when I entered the info incorrectly (wrong exp date), But when I used a card with less than $200, I got the triangle "good pop up". I used a cc with enough funds to cover the $200 and still got the triangle "good pop up".

I live in a state that does not participate in quick results.

Just a tip anyone who is as OCD and has lots of anxiety as I do, your bank may deactivate your card for excessively trying to charge your card. This happened to both of the cards I tried.

I believe so too. I will update everyone when I received my results.

UPDATE: I finally received my official pass letter in the mail today in California. It took about 3 and a half weeks.
