Question Pressing the "End" button in the USMLE Exam!

I came across this question on Yahoo! Answers and I copied it on this forum. I was wondering if anyone can share their thoughts:

"while taking the actual USMLE, at the end of each section there is a button you have to press, i think it said "END" or something like that. While taking the test, for a few of the sections, I was unable to press the "end " button. If i don't press that button, do the questions on that section not get included in the score? my results came out, and they are very very low from what i was expecting and much lower than my practice test results. i'm wondering maybe not pressing the "end" button made a difference. Any information would be of great help. i can't seem to find this info online anywhere. thanks."

Although I did not fully understand what the query is about but I can tell you this, pressing the "end" button will bring up a pop up window in FRED V2 software asking you if you want to end the current block of questions.

You can use it only when you finish the block (done all the questions and reviewed them) and there's still time (from the allocated one hour for the block). This is a very rare occasion by the way, most students barely have the time to finish the block in one hour.

By the way, the time that you will gain from finishing the block sooner is not going to be added to the other blocks time, it's just going to be added to your break time (45 minutes + 15 minutes tutorial).

Yes, if you run out of time, the block will automatically ends and your answers are submitted.
