Instructions begin prior to the start of the exam. Testing personnel will keep the official time and will tell you when to start and stop work on each separately timed session. You will be informed of the time remaining at specific intervals.

You must not open the exam or begin work before instructed to do so by the testing personnel. At the end of the exam, you must immediately put pens and pencils down when instructed to do so.

A verbal announcement will be made to all candidates when 30 minutes remain in each timed session. A final reminder will be announced when 15 minutes remain.

A standard exam day follows this format (exact times may vary):

8:00 a.m. Candidates arrive for morning session and begin the check-in process
8:30 a.m. Candidates must be seated
8:45 a.m. Approximate time that doors to testing rooms will close to begin announcements

Once doors close, candidates will not be allowed to enter the testing room until the timed portion of the exams has started.

9:00 a.m. Morning session begins
12:00 p.m. Morning session ends

Lunch break

1:00 p.m. Candidates arrive for afternoon session and begin the check-in process
1:30 p.m. Candidates must be seated
1:45 p.m. Approximate time that doors to testing rooms will close to begin announcements.

Once doors close, candidates will not be allowed to enter the testing room until the timed portion of the exams has started.

2:00 p.m. Afternoon session begins
5:00 p.m. Afternoon session ends

At the conclusion of each session, candidates must remain seated until all exam materials are collected and reconciled. This may require candidates to remain seated for an additional 10-20 minutes.

In testing rooms where there are no clocks the timekeeper will mark time remaining on a chalkboard or flipchart in the following increments:

Less than 2.5 hours remain
Less than 2 hours remain
Less than 1.5 hours remain
Less than 60 minutes remain
Less than 45 minutes remain
Less than 30 minutes remain (verbal announcement)
Less than 15 minutes remain (verbal announcement)
