Clock Practicing the 15 minutes encounter

Hi all,
I am preparing for my cs which is in a week from now. I am timing myself for the cases in FA but I usually go over 15 mins (usually 16 except in a few cases) and I am worried. How do I keep it under 15 mins? any tips plssss!

Idea! do not practice with 15mins

Practice with 8mins the first alarm and then 13 mins the second alarm... and immediately the 13 mins alarm beeps, apologize and finish your case... i did that and it worked pretty nice for me; i actually felt like there were more than 15 mins in the exam day for each case.

Btw... also set the alarm for 9mins when you're writing the PN.

Hope this helps
