Generally, no, you aren't allowed to do those things without permission from a proctor once you are checked in. You get assigned to a seat during the check-in process and are supposed to get to it and stay there until break except when given permission, such as to use the bathroom, and you are only supposed to be allowed to access stuff in your bag during the break, otherwise it's supposed to be under your chair.

Get your food, drink and bathroom stuff done before you check-in since you may not be allowed to even use the bathroom until after the test has begun depending on the proctors you get and what they will and won't allow. Some proctors let people use the bathroom during check-in before section one begins but many do not, so don't take the risk and not use a bathroom right before getting in line.

What kind of person obstructs someone from using the bathroom during a four hour test? This is going to be a problem for me if true.

Test proctoring. It allows damned near anyone to power-trip.

I think that most will allow you to use restroom but you have to be escorted and it does come off the 35 minutes.

Many reputable studies have shown that crapping your pants during testing is directly correlated with higher scores, so you may want to think twice about leaving your seat.

I would actually not have a problem doing this. It would be a lot easier getting away with crapping your pants vs. #1. The thing is though, it's A LOT easier to hold defecation than it is urination. And I urinate frequently and when I have to go, I have to go. I know it's advised not to drink much either, but I would definitely like to have some sort of caffeine/vitamin supplement right before. I could always try other forms of this without liquid, I suppose. But when I drink ANYTHING in the morning, it sets off my urination mechanisms. Needless to say, I'm concerned and I will probably be contacting my proctor before the test for this reason (any maybe some others, :wink: )

Thanks, that actually has thrown some ideas into my head. I would be a little embarrassed to wear a diaper, but I guess anything is in order for a test that determines your future. I just don't remember what it was like being in a diaper anymore.

Just remember that you'll only have to be in it a few hours if it comes down to that.
