It's 10 min.

Do not forget the time required to be back on your GMAT PC. :) This time includes the procedure of signature ;)

No more signatures, it's all biometric now. You have to be fingerprint scanned each time you leave and (re)enter the testing room. The scanners frequently issue false positives too. In my case, it took 6+ passes to get a confirmation during the break between Q and V. This procedure absorbs valuable minutes, so take a stopwatch if necessary.

Thanks to correct me :)

Yes :)... It's only in France that the procedure of signature continues. This is due to some french laws that do not allow the fingerprints :)

Here in Ukraine it was a biometric scanner. Test admin told me to allocate about 5 of my 10 minutes for re-authentication, but it actually took about 15 seconds, no more.

Anyway, I don't think it's a great idea to let your brain cool down and distract too much. Quick toilet break, a glass of water with a couple crackers/nuts/chocolate/whatever - and back to work! :)
