how much time before first break???

If you really have to pee during the test, what will you do?

1. Tell the proctor you need to be excused to go to the bathroom and basically throw away your score

how much time before first break???

Postby BigA » Sun Jun 06, 2010 6:53 pm

So how much time before you are actually admitted into the test center and the first break? I know there are three 35 minute sections. So I guess this comes down to how much time before you go into the room and the test starts. Honestly I have little girl's bladder, and I'm kinda worried if it's much more than two hours.

This is a pretty mundane thread, so I'll make a poll!

Why would going to the bathroom throw your score away? Are there any sections you usually finish ahead of time? But yeah, those adult diapers are a better solution for people who have time issues.

I wish... but no. I'm guessing, with everything else involved, going to the bathroom would take 3-5 minutes and probably cost me 2-3 questions. That's probably a big enough hit to plan a re-take.

Though I doubt that will actually happen. But does anyone know the time to expect? Does it vary?

The timing will vary depending on test sites and on how efficiently things are done at the site you are going to. When I took it at Pace, I used the BR just before going into the test room itself. It took about 30 minutes to get things going in the test room, and the first half runs about 1:45, so I would say its probably safe to assume that you have to be able to hold it for at least 2:15.

It is at least 2 hours, you can't hold it for two hours? It could be up to 3 or 4 if you are in a big room.

I would think pissing my pants would be more distracting than the discomfort of having to go.

like i said, 2 hours should be fine. But 3 or 4 definitely worries me. I think it's ridiculous to make people go that long. I'll make sure to not drink many fluids that morning.

The night before either.

During break I took the brownest piss of all time and celebrated my victor over my body fuctions.

You could always run out of the classroom, piss around the corner and return. Should take less than 2 minutes.

well yeah, I'll want to drink enough to not be thirsty, but nothing more.

It's apparent I should have added more options to the poll :lol:
