Questions asked in Part III

Will appreciate your input on the questions below:

1) How many questions are asked in Part III?
2) Are the questions identical for all examinees, or do the questions differ?
3) How elaborate should the answers be? Or, how many sentences are required to be answered for each question.
4) How long (e.g. how many minutes on average) does it take to finish the Exam III in the testing center? I think that the time allocated in 1.5 hr to 2 hours for Exam III.

1) Four questions.
2) No idea if they're the same questions for each person, though the answers would necessarily be different (it's the nature of an essay exam).
3) They need to be elaborate enough to answer the question without leaving anything you feel is critical out. (You can thank my Modern European History teacher in Grade 10 for that one.)
4) I seem to recall that I took about an hour when I sat for it, though that was two years ago. It all depends on how clearly and quickly you enter your answers and how soon you feel satisfied that they answer the questions offered.

Good luck!
