Pearson Vue Trick 2019 - Does the PVT still work?


Congrats on passing :confetti_ball:

When you say it took you to the last step to submit your order, did you actually pay for another test or get a rejected payment due to incorrect payment info? Or did you just get to the payment screen but not submit your order because you thought you failed?


Regarding the CPR email, we have reached out to the NCSBN and asked how long people can expect to wait after taking their NCLEX for the CPR if they failed.

If anyone has received a CPR email, please let us know how many days it took for you to get it after your NCLEX. Thanks!


I think the PVT still work, but you have to finish the process until the payment for it to work. For us who passed and receive a “bad pop-up” we don’t want to gamble to pay another $200 dollars, we stop at the point of declining our cc because of wrong expiry or expired cc, the point is if you do get a “bad pop-up” but it doesn’t mean that you will fail, it just mean that the system will still validate ur scores. I suggest do not try it hahaha just wait for the quick result.


I didn’t pay the actual 200$. I stopped when my order got declined because of expired cc. however I didn’t get the “good pop-up” either.



I graduated on 12/8 and just took my NCLEX-RN today 1/3. I didn’t purchase any study materials outside of program required HESI Live Review (3 days last week of school) and NCBSN Review course (last 5 weeks of school) and studied using already purchased Evolve Adaptive Quizzing. I studied almost every day all day for a good week and a half. My exam was at 12:30 today and I finished with 82 questions with more than 4 hours left. I did the PVT trick and got the “good” popup. Outside of the quick results, does anyone know how soon KY posts licensure?


Did you pass ?I have the same message on my screen.


Hi guys, I’m took my Nclex exam on 12/26 , , the time run out 142 questions , and I try the PVT but Pearson , say : You can’t make any appointment at this time because your results are on hold . Please help me , Is this a bad or good sings ?


Hi. I’m new here but just want to let everyone know, as of 12/14/2018, the trick is still working. I got my RN BSN outside the country unfortunately California board changed the rules so I challenged the NCLEX LVN. Graduated back in 2008. I just took NCLEX LVN last month December 13, 2018. I finished the exam at 171 questions. Mostly SATAs, 2 pharma, and graphs. Only a few multiple choices. After the exam, got the email from pearson vue saying that I completed the exam. December 14, the next day, at 2pm. I used an old gift card (exact card number, and correct expiration date) went to the pearson vue website and did the trick, gave me a positive response. “That you have recently scheduled an exam”. Quick results are not available in California, so I just followed the BVNPT processing timeline. I just got the mail, last week January 2nd that I passed. I studied and review for 1.5 months. I used kaplan qbank, 100 questions a day, and saunders comprehensive and questions 100 a day. And since it’s been 10 years, I reviewed all body systems anatomy and physiology as well as pathophysiology of each disease. I just used Youtube for that. Goodluck!


Sounds like a positive result :+1:


I did my NCLEX RN on 12/15/2018, I still wailing my results, after my test I checked on PVT it’s on hold results for palm scan missing,I did my palm scan at center on 12/27/2018 , next day I checked again on PVT ,they took me on payment page I submit it’s received my payment,I want to know it’s means I failed? I still not receive my CPR ,on the test I went 237question and run out of time ,I did not get any delegations question,one ECG and two math questions and fact based disease symptoms questions,I am confident I did right, any one know if they charge me can I still pass or not ? Please answer me . Thank you


I did the pvt trick but i forgot to change my card details and it went tru and charge me 200usd too
After 2 days i found out i fail. They say if they charge you . You probably failed the exam


How long did you get your CPR


You can tecniqually still pass if they charge you, but it is rare. Take this questionnaire to interpret your PVT results:


According to the NCSBN, the CPR email can take up to 6 weeks to receive, so it’s probably not the best PVT tool to rely on. That being said it’s possible it could come quickly, but they didn’t act like that would be typical.


everyone goes to step 3. the pvt trick corresponds to the response you get after you enter your credit card information. if you did not enter any credit card information, you did not complete the pvt trick.


I just tested 1/11/19 I stopped at 160 something I got no math questions but over 15 SATA, ordering procedures picture questions. I came out feeling like poop. 10mins after testing I did the trick I didn’t put the right expiration date but it went through! It posted to my account but it’s pensing. I’ve been reading different things what do you think. Did I do it too soon?


Give it another try after 1 hour has gone by since you submitted the test.


I’m too nervous now cause it’s alreasy charging 200 but the expiration was wrong. Idk if my chances are slim or not I might just wait


If what you said is true, that is reassuring for me as I DID receive the email about 30 mins after I submitted saying “now that you’ve completed the NCLEX, we understand you may still have questions.” I took the test on 1/12/2019 at 8 AM on a Saturday and got all 265 questions. I still haven’t done the PVT trick yet because I heard it’s accurate after 24 hours from the day you took the test but I’m still a little anxious about knowing.


yeah, I entered my card information and didn’t get the “good- pop up”.
