Hi Sarada,
I don't exactly recall, but I think it is two hours. If you know your project, you'll have plenty of time. The exam only consists of quetions related to how you implemented various aspects of the project. Its only purpose is to verify that the one who takes the exam is the one wrote the application.
Hope this helps,
Michael Morris
