No. I average 60 words per minute. Unless you believe that you can literally type for the entire exam at that pace (impossible), you need to be typing significantly faster than that during the time when you are typing.
There are lots of things that go on during an exam that require you to not type. Chief among them is reading the different questions, flipping pages, underlining and identifying parts of the question, planning your answer (if this is necessary for you), and at times just thinking for a second. I'm about as "stream of consciousness" as they come on law school exams, but occasionally you have to give something slightly deeper though.
Likewise, you get tired at the end of 4 hours, so you will type slower than your usual capability.
