A test session contains many test blocks.
A test block runs for a fixed time and contains a specified number of questions.
Once you begin a block of the test, no breaks are provided during the block. Each block lasts approximately 30 to 60 minutes. During blocks, the clock continues to run even if you leave the testing room for a personal emergency.
If you leave during a block, the test centre staff will report that fact as an irregular incident, and your results may be withheld. Each time you take a break during the testing day, you are required to sign out if you leave the testing room and sign in when you return. You must present your identification and the bottom of your Scheduling Permit each time you sign in. Each block ends when its time expires or when you exit from it.
The test session ends when all blocks have been completed (or the total time for the test expires).
