Maybe I'm just being really dense, but what is the reasoning for a few of these rules? Why is it that you cannot move on to the next section of the exam if you are done with the previous section? Meaning, instead of timing every section, why can't they just give you a maximum time limit of 5 hours for the whole exam and you leave when you are done? I mean, it's not like you're gonna be able to contact a buddy who is not done yet and tell him/her the answers when you're not allowed to have phones or other things out. Like, today I took the PTCE. The environment was strictly controlled. I had to take all items except for my ID out of my pockets and placed into a locker. Then, I had to give a series of fingerprints. When I entered the exam room, I had to give my fingerprint. If I had to go to the restroom, I had to give a finger print, and when I was leaving I had to give a fingerprint. Not to mention, my workstation was monitored by video and audio. But yet, when I was done with the test, I was allowed to walk out instead of having to wait out the clock.
