Took REG today and I had 38 mins left on the clock. Since it wont let me go back, I didnt know what to do so I just submitted it. I feel like this could go either way — super bad or regular bad. Anyways, wondering if anyone else had similar experience. What do you do when u have time left?July 11, 2019 at 7:07 am #2548410
I always had time left on the clock. I would work through the MCQs quickly and go with my gut, so I never had less than an hour remaining. I would just double check the testlet I was in, and then submit.July 11, 2019 at 8:04 am #2548476
Completely normal. I took AUD twice and both times I left virtually the same amount of time, about 50 minutes, on the clock for each exam. I think I had 30 minutes left when I completed REG. It's safe to say that I'm not going to have that luxury of time when I take BEC in September this year or FAR in Q1/2020 since they both can be calculation heavy.July 11, 2019 at 9:31 am #2548590
I paid for that 4 hours and I used every minute.
One exam I might have submitted 5 minutes early. FAR I got timed out on. Can't remember the rest exactly but I used the time to double and triple check, and use the AL or REGS where they were available.July 11, 2019 at 9:42 am #2548617
Completely normal. Everyone's experience differs. Here's the time I spent:
REG: 2.5 hours
BEC: 4.0 hours (timed out)
AUD: 1.5 hours
FAR: 3.0 hours
I've always been a pretty quick test taker. I took longer on FAR as I feel like I probably rushed AUD looking back.July 11, 2019 at 1:08 pm #2548953
I had time left on the clock for FAR and REG – between 45 minutes to 1 hr. BEC, I had 30 seconds left on the clock when I submitted my last testlet.July 14, 2019 at 6:46 pm #2556534
I don't leave time left on the clock because I like to use all the time I am given especially on the simulations. Also, because I am given the time I feel like i should utilize because why would i want to to leave time left on the clock when i can go and double check my answers, but everyone is different, so to each his/her own.July 18, 2019 at 7:45 pm #2566344
For MCQ, I moved on when I was ready. I actually tried to give myself at least an hour for the (at the time) 7 SIMS. So when I had the answer, I moved on. I had 3 MCQ testlets at that time so I gave myself 30 minutes max per section. If I only needed 20 minutes, so be it.
For the SIMs, I used the entire time even if I would've otherwise finished early. First, I read each set of instructions to scout them out. Next, I started with the easiest (for me) first to get my confidence up. Then I went to the one with the most blanks, with an eye on ending with the one with the least. If I got stuck I moved on and came back. But, I wanted to maximize the points. The last 10 minutes were spent either checking all the SIMs for blanks missed and last minute checks of areas I had to guess.
