Default exam tomorrow...need urgent reply

1) Can we use the washroom in between the cases?

2) Can we write PAMHUGSFOSS on the paper given to us even before our time starts? will it be considered cheating?

3) Is coffee available in between the cases?

1. you can use the bathroom before you start and in the 2 breaks.
2. no, you can't. you can start writing on your paper when the time starts. i strongly recommend writing down your mnemonics or differentials before you go in, it saves time.
3. there's a break with lunch, where they have drinks and coffee, and another 15 min break later where there's coffee and drinks.

hope this helped!

Don't drink anything like coffee... half way through you'd want to hit the washroom.

don't write on paper before you hear the "You may now start"... its cheating and you will be reported after a warning.

breaks you can use the washroom. However, in between cases you could if you are going to shart your pants but then it would severely hamper your 15 min and 10 min window of work.


good luck, exam is today!!!
