Probably not. Most laptops have a soldered in CPU. What make and model?

The cpu on that model is soldered. You'd have to replace the motherboard with one that is made for that model and has a faster cpu soldered to it and unless you plan on doing this yourself the parts+labor would likely be close to that of a replacement laptop with better specs.

I've heard about overclocking would that work long enough for my laptop to pass a test

I wouldn't recommend it. It would require software to override the bios setting and a small mistake could leave you with a ruined brick .

Overclocking and laptops do not mix. Laptop BIOSes do not have any provisions for overlock, and your laptop' cooling is not designed for that.
