I am appearing on 11 August and am unsure whether to take 2 breaks of 5 min each( after AWA and after Quant) or to take one break of 10 Min after Quant.
Is it possible to , wash your face , have some snacks and come back to your seat in 5 min ?

thanks,

I would suggest you to utilize all available breaks..You would have to be within the vicinity of the test center during the entire duration so take a couple of energy bars or so with you....

Cheers,
Tijji.

You have two breaks of 10 minutes. I'd recommend taking 7-8 minutes each time and being back on with like 2 minutes to spare.

It may take them a bit to get you checked in - don't take a full 10 minutes. Do take all of your breaks though. I used the restrooms and ate a granola bar and still had plenty of time.

Also, don't say yes that you want to take a break when you get to that point. Raise your hand for them to come get you and then when they get there, say yes. They did not tell me this, but I had read it on here. Sometimes they don't come for a few minutes and you don't want to be out that time.
