• What Happens If You Don’t Finish a Test On Time?

If the time limit runs out while taking a test, you will be redirected to the ‘Review’ page. From here, you are able to restart the test from the beginning to retry finishing within the time limit. If you are unable to complete the test on time you may return later to pick up the test where you left off in order to complete it.

When taking a practice test, there will be a time counter which indicates ‘time left’. Keep an eye on this counter when taking the test to know how much time is left.

 

• Am I Allowed To Use a Calculator On The Math Exams?

Yes and no. There are certain math tests that allow the use of a calculator, while other math tests do not allow calculator use, or request the student refrain from doing so. Depending on the math test being taken, there will be a prompt at the beginning to let the student know whether a calculator should or should not be used.

 

• What Should I Do If I Don’t Know The Answer To a Question?

If you are unsure of an answer to a question when taking a test, you have the option of skipping the question and coming back to answer it later. This may be wise when taking a time-limited test. However, remember to come back to input an answer to any skipped questions before finishing and submitting your test when done.
