You should be aware that once you enter your Launch Code, the subsequent introductory examination screens operate under a 5-minute time limit and you must move through the introductory screens quickly. If the 5-minute time limit is exceeded, the session will automatically terminate and it will not be possible to restart the examination. In this case, you must leave the test center, forfeit fees, reapply to test in the next test window, and receive a score of 0.
While there is adequate time to review the screens and respond, there is not time for you to take notes, leave the testing room, or do anything other than reading and responding to the screens.
After you enter your Launch Code, proceed through the introductory screens and start the examination, the computer screen will display a countdown timer at the top of the screen which will let you know the time remaining as you work through the examination. Plan your time so that you do not use your time up early in the examination and do not have enough time later in the examination. The Prometric test center appointment time includes examination testing time plus 30 minutes. The additional 30 minutes is allocated to the examination login and the candidate survey at the end of the examination. It is not additional testing time; you will only be given four (4) hours to take the examination.
If you are a Testing Accommodations candidate and have been approved for extra time, please refer to your Board of Accountancy or designee for the actual length of your examination.
