Default Time of PA Examination

The PA exam lasts 5 hours. What is the starting hour? Do we have the time to go to lunch?

No, you don't want to take breaks during that test.

They also started giving 15 minutes to give people some time to go to the bathroom / have a break, but it just means you have 5 hours 15 minutes to turn in from when you start, and you don't have to take a break, so you get a bit of extra time if you power through. Since it's CBT, starting time is from the time you click 'go' at prometric--I had my appointment for 12 or something, but the center was super disorganized and they didn't check me in until 1. Wasn't counted against my time.
