I have a question. With the flu season running around, there are many people suffering from cold / cough. Will the test center allow candidates who have bad cold / cough into the test center. (Reason is there is high amount of chance that other candidates may be distracted too much if the sick candidate continuously coughs in the test room.)

If there is no such restriction, what can we(other candidates) do to overcome this distraction. I believe that our hard work contributes only 50% of our score and our activeness & concentration contributes to other 50%.

Most likely those very sick, will reschedule, and for others, you won't notice them when you get in the zone (with ear plugs).

You may want to practice using the ear plugs - takes a bit to figure it out and get used to them.
