Based on preious beta experiences, number of questions should be around 200, and exam time is ranging from 3 to 5 hours. Types of questions usually be MCQ and D&D type. Passing score is not determined until the beta exams are graded.

Test code is not announced yet, but you may expect it to be 311-091.

I think the number of questions is 183 and the duration is 240 min - that is what was told to me by the UK prometric centre when I called them.

you are correct.

I came to know it is 5 hours.

70 questions(official exam) the time mentioned is 120 minutes.
You can go through once and review once(a fast one)
so for 183 questions ? how much it should be (keeping in mind the difficulty level ?

Anyhow it seems they don't allow you out of the hall...no breaks...is it?

You can have your own break. Just the count down will not be stopped.
