Do we really need 4 hours for the test?

For those who had completed the test, is it really necessary to use the entire 4 hours? Would 3 hours be enough?

Ok, I guess my question is vague. Suppose I do not want to check through the entire lot of questions. Just want to finish it all once & go off, would 3 hours be enough?

Or rather, did anyone took less than or around 3 hours?

It depends on a lot of factors.
Somebody may need 3 hours, somebody may need 6 hours!

For me, the first round took me about 3.5 hours, and I used the left 1 hour to tackle the marked ones which I was not sure of.

Good luck!

Cheng,

Tong is right. Depends on a lot of factors. I usually take exams pretty fast, i completed the test in 2.5 hours and used 30 minutes to check the answers.

I made the exam in 2.5 hours, and take 20 minutes to revise some marked questions.
As Tong said, i only commented questions that has typos, and make some suggestions to one drag and drop diagram that completely desfigurated.

Hi,
It took me about 4 hours to complete the questions plus making comments on most of the questions. i think if it is purely answering the questions you may need 3 hours.it really depends on you whether you can do it fast or not. Anyway, all the best to your exam.
