Certificate What is the OASIS Trick?

Just that - what is is and how does it work? Does it tell us if we passed or failed? I am DYING (kinda) to know if I cleared Step 1 and today is the third wednesday since my exam (march 28th) and I was wondering, you know..what do I do?!
I know its early. But ugh..

Default OASIS trick is no longer valid

The OASIS trick is not valid anymore as the ECFMG had put a fix to it more than two years ago.

The trick was that "while you are waiting the results" you go and re-apply for the same exam. If your application went through then it means you have failed the exam, if your application was rejected then it means you have passed the exam.

Relax my friend, it's only one week and you'll get your results.

Good luck
