Pearson Vue Trick - Website Update (Good pop up still alive)

Posted

I took my test on the 15th of August and received the good pop up (I'm in CA)

Since then, I've been checking daily and continued to get the good pop up until yesterday. Yesterday there was a website update. A complete new look and no more suspenseful pop up message. It seems that everyone is not going to the CC page. I proceeded to submit my credit cars information and process and the "good pop up" will appear then. If you failed apparently it will take your money. So the good pop up is still alive and well we just have to be a little more risky to get to it. I suppose if you fail & they take your money it's inevitable anyhow. Good luck everyone! I attached a print screen of the new "good pop up"

Sorry for how the attachment posted on the post. It completely intercepted my post. Anyhow, that is the new good pop up after you submit your credit card info in.

The last attachment is what the good pop up looked like prior to yesterday's website update.

The good pop up will appear after you submit your payment information in. If you failed, most likely the registration fee of $200 will be debited.

Thank you for posting this! I've been on the edge since last night! I tested Friday at 1pm I checked after I was done and it gave me the open registration. After 1.5hr I did it again and gave me the good pop up then I was checking Friday & Saturday and good things until last night it took me to cc and my heart broke! Seeing your post gives me hope!! I'm also in CA.

No problem! It's definitely nerve wrecking. Hopefully soon we will receive our letters from the board 😊

I tested on Friday as well (at 8 am) and got the good pop up on Friday evening and Saturday morning, but then after the website update it took me to the credit card page and I was SO upset. I found out today via the quick results that I did pass. Praise the Lord! It has been a rough weekend waiting!!

It looks like you did not have to submit your CC information before getting the "pop up". From your photo above, it popped up in the second step, after providing your CC info but just before finalizing. Is this correct? If so, shouldn't have to worry about your card being charged, Right? Or did you have to submit the final time and it just did not let you pass the second step? After putting my credit card info in I went to next step but still wanted me to finalize it. Not sure what to do. Do I finalize it or should it have popped up before the final submit? Scared and nervous :(Thanks for the help.

Yes, you are correct about the prior good pop up process and correct about having to worry about your credit card being charged if the good pop up fails to appear.

If you do not have a credit card, perhaps you can purchase a prepaid Visa card and add the minimum required. Just a suggestion.

Okay, as you can see from my above post, I just stressed out after reading your post and seeing that the pop up was on the second step. I couldn't take it any longer so I went ahead and submitted the final time and........it was then that I got the same pop up that you did remaining on the second step!!!!! I am so relieved and have only the good Lord to thank!

Yay!! Awesome! Congrats! So happy that you have found some relief this whole process is definitely anything other than fun and for them to change the site on us like that just added to the unnecessary stress.

Wow. Sometimes the posts on this forum just makes me shake my head wondering how in the world people smart enough to get through nursing school can come up with some of this stuff. Without even mentioning that putting in a credit card number that has not got enough on it to pay for the item is illegal, what does the popup mean when you get the "Sorry your credit card was declined"? And do you REALLY want PV to have a record of you trying to pay for an exam with a bad credit card? If you did indeed fail, you are going to need PV! What if enough people try this that they start reporting to the BONs to make it stop, and it affects your license, because it is illegal.

The PVT was a computer glitch that we all utilized, now it's gone and things are going to work the way they were designed to work. It sucks, but do not compromise your future license to beat the system with an illegal maneuver.

I've been getting the good pop up daily since my testing. I read from another post that the good pop up is still there so I decided to try it. I definitely do not want the system to take my money if it wasn't true. If your card doesn't get processed or you don't get the good pop up, you'll just have to be prepared to register again and pay the $200 once more. Thank you for your post though, as long as I've been able to help someone looking for answers my purpose of the post is complete.

It looks like the new process is a little different from the old one. I would imagine that now you do put your info into the system at the CC page (step one) and then you're taken to step 2... which is probably a confirmation page and if all looks good (and you failed) the next step would be clicking "Submit" or "Confirm" or something to that effect which is when you'd actually pay for the next exam because you're completing step 2 and moving to step 3.

If this is the new order of the PVT, I think we're going to have to all re-write our instructions about how to do the PVT reliably and without actually having people pay for another test.
