Is it still true that there is no time limit to read the instructions before AWA? I am still confused which sections on the GMAT are untimed. Can anyone throw some light?
Thanks in advance!
That's correct - the initial section which includes tutorial about the computer and the part where you fill out your information/pick schools is untimed, though few people want to spend much time reading them usually (most want to get done with the test asap).
The breaks are timed. There is no way to get more than 8 mins away from the computer....
