Testing during COVID-19

Make sure to stay up to date on the guidelines for testing during COVID-19

Whilst testing during COVID-19, it is important to follow the guidelines for the health and safety of you and those around you.

1. Check for Test Center Closings

Monitor test center closings in the days leading up to your test and the day of your test to make sure your test center hasn’t changed or closed.

We also recommend you check directly with the test center, including the test center’s website, on the morning of the test.


2. Doors Open at 7:45 a.m.

All test centers open at 7:45 a.m. and doors close at 8 a.m. unless otherwise noted on your admission ticket. You cannot be admitted once testing has started. If you’re late or absent on test day, you can reschedule. We recommend rescheduling as opposed to reregistering—it will cost less. Find out more about changing your registration information. We are currently waiving all change fees through June 25.

Make sure you show up with everything you need.


3. Testing Starts Between 8:30 and 9 a.m.

Your seat is assigned, not chosen by you. Wait to be seated. Here’s what will happen next:

  • The test coordinator will read all instructions verbatim from a manual and can answer questions only about the procedure, not about test questions or content.
  • The test coordinator will tell you when to start and stop working on each section.
  • You must work within each section of the test only for the time allotted.
  • Going back to a section once that section has ended is not permitted
  • You may not go-ahead to a new section if you finish a section early.
  • Do not skip sections. Doing so may result in score cancellation, delays, or both.
  • After the test is finished, the test coordinator will collect and count the test books to make sure all materials have been turned in before dismissing you from the testing room.

Don’t be surprised if your test experience isn’t exactly like that of the student sitting next to you. The sections in your test book might be different.


4. Breaks

For most students, there is one 10-minute and one five-minute break during the test. These are the only times you can eat and drink. Keep your ID and admission ticket with you at all times. They’ll be checked every time you enter the testing room.

Test books, answer sheets, and calculators must remain on your desk during breaks.

You can’t use this time to power up devices, like cell phones—if you do, your scores will be canceled.


5. Dismissal

You will ll likely be done around noon.
