Normally i finish my quant section before time. So i was wondering if i could use this time to refresh myself by not answering last question till last minute.

This would give me some more time (5+) to gather my thoughts about verbal section.

But all this depends on :
whether ETS penalises you for taking too much time on one particular question?
wheather it rewards you if you finish you section ahead of time?

I suppose ETS would not reward you if you finished the section before time and neither would it penelize you if you took very long to answer a single question. The prime objective should be to answer all questions within the stipulated time, as ETS has a penalty for not completing the section. There is an optional 5 mins break between quant and verbal. If you want a longer break than the max permissible 5 mins, then you could try to use your option of not answering the last quant question until the last minute. Although, you should try to relax in that time and not worry about completion of the last pending option.

Personally, I would not go for your option and just answer the last quant question as and when I finish it.

"By not reply till last minute", i meant not hitting "Confirm answer" button. I would solve the question get the answer but hit "Confirm answer" last min.

Reason why i am asking this question is that i took "Quant challenge" and when i looked at the results, i saw that a user who finished his section eariler was given higher percentile that one who took more time even though toltal no or correct answers were same.
