Hi all, Taking the test tomorrow! I am doing ok on the mock exams (70-80 on jq+, 90 on M. Green), but I desperately need to get up and stretch and clear my head about halfway through it. When I don't I inevitably glaze over the harder questions and fail. Can this be done at a Prometric center? Are you disqualified if you have to stand up and stretch? Can you be excused to go to the restroom? How strict is the environment? Just wondering...
At the very least you should be able to stand up and shake your arms and legs. That can help loosen up a bit. I haven't taken the test yet so I don't know the answers to your questions. But I do wish you the best of luck tomorrow!
From what I've seen all Prometric centers are not born equal. Some are pretty permissive while others not. I think you are gonna have to do your "business" before the test just in case you are not allowed to go to the bathroom. It would be a shame to fail just because some liquid is willing to get out Concerning the stretching thing, I'm not sure. I was alone in the room so I could do whatever I wanted, but if you are with several people I don't think it would be a good idea to get up and start to jumping around Anyway, I think it's pretty much up to you to feel the atmosphere as you enter the room. If you think people are uptight, then sit in your corner and don't move, otherwise feel free to make yourself at home... Well not too much, though Remember that the most important thing is to feel comfortable and to focus... Get plenty of rest tonight. A good night sleep is really worth it. And good luck [ March 07, 2002: Message edited by: Valentin Crettaz ]
