Yep, to clarify, you have to try to login, then click on register, and then click on California Bar Exam.

Don't answer it at all to get the error message.

In that case, I got the same error as you.

Need others to test it out to confirm what this message means.

I'm hoping everyone is currently in the repeater file (because we repeated the July one) until Friday.

Before you freak out: I cross posted on another board, and the person who responded there got the same result as us. Possible that all 3 failed, but makes it less likely.

Also, I did not repeat the July one. February was my first time taking it. So that rules that out.

I know the opposite message exists because googling it finds that people basically asked this question, but the reverse. See, for example: http://all4jds.com/FORUMS/aft/15979

@El Pollito & @CourtneyElizabeth
2 days will do nothing. But people are weird on their test results. Some people don't even look at their results till they're comfortable. Others, like me, are impatient and want to know the results. Others (like you guys, it seems) are content to wait till the moment they're officially released.

I don't think there's any right way. Personally, my opinion is that if there is a way to get the results earlier through a bit of clever manipulation: why not? But, I get not wanting to go through that trouble. That said, I'm not exactly sitting here biting my nails, even though I'm pretty sure I've failed. To me it's more about curiosity, really.

And El Pollito: if you knew me in person you'd be giving me the opposite advice. :D

I might have missed it, but that link doesn't show anyone posting the opposite message.

I guess the only way to find out (for now) is to wait.

The message the guy (and everyone else on that thread) gets is: the information does NOT match...

Just to recap my experience in signing up:

I was able to sign up for the July 2014 exam and was assigned the Santa Clara testing center. I'm 99% sure I wasn't on ambien when I registered, so I'm fairly confident I answered "yes" in response to the repeater question. Not sure what it all means. I either did myself a huge favor or just made a generous donation to the bar.

But maybe if we all enter up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A on the results screen, we'll all pass.

Alright. I went through the whole signup process again, this time answered "No" to the repeater question. This is the message that came up:

Immediate repeater: The information you provided matches the information contained in the immediate repeater file. Please respond "Yes" to the question "Were you unsuccessful...", and apply as an immediate repeater or contact the Los Angeles Office of Admissions at (213) 765-1500.

Just tried the sign up for July. I saw a screen with the word "Congratulations!" flash across the screen for a second then it went to an error screen. Oh, well. Guess I'll just wait till tomorrow....

Are you guys checking results friday or just waiting till sunday? Its better to be depressed on a sunday than a friday night. But if you pass, then you can have the best weekend of your life as opposed to being super happy on a sunday. I'll be in SD so I don't want to be super happy on a sunday when i take my flight back home lol.
