The Testing Experience

Candidates will be escorted to their designated workstation. 


For Certification Candidates:

Due to the length of the Certification exam, candidates are offered an optional mid examination lunch break of 40 minutes. The Lunch break does not count against the test time. However, the test time will resume immediately after the 40-minute lunch break. There will be an optional 10 minute break between the 2nd and 3rd sessions, as well as the 6th and 7th session. However, unlike the lunch break, the test time will continue during these two 10-minute breaks.

For Osteopathic Continuous Certification Examination Candidates:

There will be no breaks during the Osteopathic Continuous Certification exam.


Candidates are advised that:

-- Brightness and Contrast controls are available to adjust the display screen.
-- White boards and/or scrap paper may be available depending upon the test center.

Breaks are normally authorized to allow test takers to visit the restrooms or, in the case of an all-day exam, the opportunity to eat.  Should a test taker have questions during an exam or require an unscheduled break, he/she should simply raise a hand and the proctor will come over immediately.

The Testing Experience

Candidates are reminded that the exam is broken into sets of 50 questions to complete in 1 hour.
