I'm talking all about the bad pop-up you might get if you try to do the Pearson Vue NCLEX trick.

As an FYI, I've talked about this topic more extensively in the article where I go over everything you need to know about the Pearson Vue NCLEX trick.

If there's a question you can't find here, check out that linked article.

1. What's the Bad Pop Up For the NCLEX?

The “bad pop-up” is when your payment is accepted after trying to reschedule for the NCLEX immediately after taking it. This is different from the “good pop-up” when you're not allowed to reschedule the NCLEX immediately after taking it.

The bad pop-up is supposed to me you failed the NCLEX, while the good pop-up is supposed to mean you passed.

2. How Accurate is the Bad Pop For the NCLEX?

The bad pop-up is not accurate. Students have reported getting the bad pop-up and then still passing the NCLEX. The best thing to do is pay for the quick results or wait until the official results come out.

This false positive might not seem like a big deal until you think about the stress it might cause you, not to mention paying for an exam you don't need.

3. Can You Get the Bad Pop Up and Still Pass the NCLEX?

Yes, you can get the bad pop and still pass the NCLEX. Many students have reported this happening to them. That's why it's best to either get the unofficial quick results or wait for the official results.

4. What Does the Bad Pop up For the NCLEX Say?

The bad pop-up for the NCLEX will say something along the lines of “Our records indicate that you have recently scheduled this exam. Another registration cannot be made at this time.”

5. What Does the NCLEX Bad Pop Up Look Like?

It's just a pop-up that appears at the top of the order screen when you're trying to pay for the NCLEX. Watch this video, and at around the 07:48 mark, you'll see what I mean.
