Exam time

5hrs 50minutes

Thoughts during exam
30 min-- fail
1hr-- go slow-- more focus may change the picture
2hr-- only 70 questions. now do it fast
3hr- speed on track
4hr- again go fast
after 5hrs --- 30 questions to go. feeling 70/30 somehow better but battery down specially with type II diabetes. Suddenly straight questions started(simpler compared to first 30 minutes).
5hr 30 min-- started review with 90.10. 15 min review.


Not like PMP. PMP congratulations on screen here result not displayed on test screen. Complete review.End exam on your test machine and come out. Again get your both palm scanned,get your passport verified. Collect your belonging from locker,Jacket from hanger. Now TA placed the result sheet on the table face down. No expressions.
