Highlighting Text during the Exam [#permalink]

I have a question: does the GMAT software used during the actual exam allow you to select or highlight text on the screen?

I've been having vision problems (strabismus) that make it VERY difficult for me to read text on screen. The problem has worsened over the past 2 weeks, and I'm worried that it will affect my performance on the exam. It is very difficult for me to concentrate, and I often lose my place reading even the shortest passages (e.g. longer word problems in quant).

I'm seeing a doctor soon, but not in time for my exam this Thursday!

I'm not certain, but I don't think so. You can highlight text during the AWA section to cut, copy, paste, but I don't think you can highlight on the individual question portion of the test.

Contact the GMAC to confirm.

No, you cannot highlight any text during the exam.
I have found it useful during the studies, but on the real exam I wasn't able to do it. It didn't affect my workflow, though.
