Computer Frequent Power Outages while doing NBME Online

so ppl i have to give an online nbme and there is a question i wanted to ask u
we have frequent power outages here and that issue can be resolved cz we have a backup generator but the internet connection also goes down with the power outage sometimes for as long as half an hour probably some problem with my internet provider
so anyways in such a situation if im doing an online timed NBME will i be able to resume it when the internet comes back from where it disconnected or the clock will keep on ticking and i will lose that block?

i also faced this problem while i was giving NBME 13 online timed mode. every time my internet went down a dialogue box would appear saying that ur connection is down hence u can either choose to exit or as soon as your connection comes back you can start where u were without losing any time.
Hope this helps.
