Hi guys,
1)I have a question regrding break timings on the GMAT.It is 8 mins but how are the 8 mins counted i.e does the timer start the moment you raise your hand to call the proctor or does it start from the moment the proctor locks your workstation and you come out of testing room.
In My previous gmat attempt ,i didnt get my complete 8mins Becuase when i logged in into my verbal section,the screen showed me that i had still 3mins left.
2)Do we get the integrated reasoning section in the current GMAT.iam taking my exam on tuesday.I read in some posts that there is an optional integrated reasoning section.Is that true?

The timing is something I learned about the hard way. As soon as the screen pops up asking if you want a break is when your clock starts ticking. I took a moment before checking "yes" and raising my hand thinking that was when the time started. Oops. When I came back, I saw I lost 1.5 minutes. That hurt my confidence and it showed in my score.

The new section will be added this summer so you are good.

Best of luck to you.

1 thing to know which isn’t available online is that, when you return from the break and click to proceed to the section, a screen with instructions for that section will appear. This screen I believe lasts for 120 secs. You can use this time for plugging in your ear plugs or jotting something on your scratch pad!
