Anyone know the official rule here? I was writing down A,B,C,D,E on my notepad during the school selection section. The proctor came by and said i can't write anything down until the time starts. Do you have to wait until the time starts on the quant / verbal section to write on notepad or can you write during the timed directions? I don't remember if there was a time limit during the school selection portion.

Not sure whether it's an official rule, but it is normal practice. Drop an email to Pearson and check whether you're allowed to write anything down before a particular section starts.

The writing board is supposed to be changed after every section, so in most cases writing things down won't really help. Try to send an email though. I'm sure a clarification would help other test takers.

It depends on centre to centre. Some do allow you to do so while others don't. So, you have to just follow what guidelines they are giving.
