PVT changes

Hello everyone,

So I finally sat for my exam on Friday at 4PM. Testing all 130 questions and had 2 minutes left when I finished. 

And so my story begins... I received an email from Pearson saying the usual “now that you’ve taken the test...” I tried to do the PVT trick using an accurate card number but incorrect expiration/cvc entries. My card got declined. I decided to leave it alone and read blogs and posts about the PVT. Fast forward to last night, 26 hours after my test ended, I did the trick again. I got so excited to see the good pop up! It gave me some relief. Now today, I woke up early and anxious. I told myself to do the PVT trick again and so I succumbed to it. Now, the screen totally changed. I no longer see the “our records indicate...” pop up but actually allowing me to reregister even with incorrect credit card information. At this point, my anxiety is through the roof. I don’t know what to make of this. I will just wait and see when I pay for my quick results tonight. 

Anyway, I have read a lot of entries in blogs and forums about the “good pop up” but haven’t really ran across something like mine. Hopefully I still passed and this is just a glitch. I took screenshots. See below. 

Sending out good vibes to everyone. Happy Sunday!


Is it saying  incorrect card info now? That screenshot is the page before the good or bad pop up shows up.

It is not saying incorrect card info whatsoever even if I changed both the expiration date and cvv. it took me to that page  in that first photo. Im baffled. 

In the first photo where it says 'almost there' u should be able to hit submit again and the pop up will appear. 

OMG, you’re so right! I went ahead and hit submit order. My heart was beating so fast this morning that I actually forgot what I did last night. I did the process again and Im happy to say that I got the “good pop up”.  Thank you so much for talking some sense into me! Keeping my fingers crossed until I get the official notification ((:

Im so glad! CONGRATS! 🎉🎉🎉 I actually did the same thing like the 3rd time I tried it and started freaking out😂😂 I think alot of people do that and assume its the bad pop up, were just so stressed!!

Awww thank you so much! 😊 Ha! That’s why you know exactly what Im doing wrong huh? 😂 My stress levels went down a whole lot of bit! I will report back once it’s official. Have a great day! 

Yep😂😂 I was freaking so I knew exactly what page u were on! Looking forward to hearing ! Have a great STRESS FREE day😊😊😊

Awww thank you, you as well! 😀

Hey, I passed! 😊

Super happy! Thank you again for everything.

Yay!!! Congratulations, RN!🎉🎉🎉🎉

Thank you, dear! I appreciate you. 😘

Just to clarify the first time you did the PVT it said card declined and then you waited a while before trying it again it said the “good pop up”

Just finished my NCLEX and tried the PVT! It said my card was declined. I have sufficient funds in the card. Only thing I changed was the expiration.. so hopefully my situation is like yours..

Hey there! Yes the first time I tried it, it showed card declined whilst changing the expiration date and cvv—That was within an hour of finishing my exam. I redid it around 26 hours later and it changed to the “good pop up”. I still used the incorrect expiration date and cvv. Try again tomorrow beyond 24 hours to see if it changes... and pray, I know I did. 

I wish you the best of luck!
