Can you get multiple pens? [#permalink]

I was at the test center today (1 week before my test) to ask them what I needed to bring, etc, and when I asked her if we got multiple pens to use, she said she would be watching me on a monitor and if I needed a pen, just raise my hand and she will bring me one.

Are they not allowed to give you multiple pens? If not, that is insane. The place this girl sits is nowhere near the testing room and she also is the girl answering the phones and door. It could easily be 5 minutes between raising my hand and getting a pen. I mean, thats like getting 3 questions wrong, just because their pen dries out.

I just don't see the logic. Why wouldn't they give everyone 3 pens instead? Do they worry we will somehow turn 2 pens into a regular piece of paper through some form of magic and then copy answers off the test onto this paper and smuggle it away? It just seems so stupid.

Someone please respond to ease my mind.

Thanks,

if this is the way it is, then just live it.
knowing the reason does not change their practice any way.

u can ask them why or even raise a complaint if u want to, after the test.
