Default My suggestions

You have one of two options:

Either try to do it in an area where there isn't Internet outage, such as a nearby location.

Or, purchase the self-paced version. This will give you more time to finish the test (you can wait until you reconnect and finish the test later)

However, I prefer the first solution, because the NBME test is so critical that it has to be done appropriately with continued Internet connection.
