PMP Introduces a 10-minute Break During Exam
Both the online proctored testing and center-based testing option for the PMP exam now have a built-in 10-minute break. The exam is now divided into two parts. You will start the break once you complete and submit the first part of the exam. Please note, you will NOT be able to review questions from the first part of the exam after you start your break.
You will be permitted to leave the room during the break. Once your 10-minute break is over, your proctor will check you back in and you will finish the second part of your exam. If you do not return to the room at the conclusion of your 10-minute break, your exam session will be terminated.
