Yes, it happened to me, but seems to me that they have a "system" or something that usually senses those "abrupts" changes or windows closing and automatically suspends the exam because when it happened, I was able to pick up where I left of right away. Happened more than once.

What I usually do is try to not have anything else open (like other windows or programs in the background) to avoid those problems.

So what happened to you? did your time run out? or where you able to continue?

well when i reopened time ran out and i couldnt finish those questions. i contacted them and said that in their system is seems i didn;t answer 3 which is wrong, bcause after the test ended, i counted how many in form4 i didnt get to do. they said they couldnt do anything.

is their a way to figure out what i would have gotten? thats 60 bucks down the drain for asessing myself.

OH really? that sucks...the only thing you can do is read those questions (since they'll be marked as bad) and see if you know the topic. I'm sorry to hear that, nobody wants to go through it, specially after paying those $60 :S
