Time shown on the actual GMAT ? Please help ... [#permalink] New post 19 Sep 2003, 06:58
I just took the PP II exam and found that it was showing some time like 1.04, .55 etc. I think that was individual time estimate for the specific question.

What time is shown on the actual GMAT test screen ? Is it the time remaining in the section ? Please clarify this question as I m taking my GMAT tomorrow and getting nervous with all these details.

I m disappointed with a 640 score on the second PP. From others' experience, I think I m going to score something around 640 tomorrow .. hope its not below that :cry:

Hi [#permalink] New post 19 Sep 2003, 12:41
Hi,

I took the exam today (feel free to read about my experiences in the posting called "I choked (570)".

Originally, I thought that I'd have to mouse-click on the timer to get it started, but it automatically defaulted and was running as soon as I took it.

I took it at the Prometric Center on Clark in downtown Chicago. The timer counts down for each of four sections. I thought I'd only have 25 minutes for the first essay, but it showed that I had 30 minutes. Other times exactly like the PowerPrep. The breakdown went like this:

**computer registration process (time seems unlimited here, but not sure)**

Essay I (timer: 30 min)

Essay II (timer: 30 min)

**5 minute optional break**

Quantitative (timer: 1 hr 15 min)

**5 minute optional break**

Verbal (timer: 1 hr 15 min)

** after-exam survey and confirm or deny results**


On each of the four timed sections once the time left hits 5 minutes, it'll count down the seconds as follows: 4:59 min... 4:58 min... 4:57 min... 4:56 min. Additionally, the 5 minute optional breaks do minute and second countdowns.

Hope this helps. As for the PowerPrep showing a time estimate for every question, I haven't found this feature to exist. So, maybe I've just never known it existed, or you have a faulty copy, perhaps.
