Default PN Typing beyond The Stop typing announcement

I got a one crazy Q.What if u kept typing beyond the STOP TYPING announcemnt may be a word more.How Proctors will report it to USMLE?Will they ask u to sign a form or something or they will just report it any way.
Any ideas how they operate in this case?

They will give you a (verbal) warning. I dont know what happens if you do it more than once...

you probably won't find answer to it as no one has dared to do it....jokes apart, plz dont do it. i saw a guy on my test day, reading the door notes before the announcement and they said they would report him. You are better off without this kind of stress in the test.

This is what I have heard:

First time they will warn you.

Second time they will report it (Means that points will be deducted from your score).
They may also ask you to fill out a form.

Third time they will ask you to leave!

A guy at my center was asked to sign some sort of form. I don't know if that was his first warning or a repeat warning.

My advice - just don't do it... Is it really worth the risk??

All the best!

At my center a girl that looked like she was from India or the middle east was asked to sign a form, she typed after the announcement TWICE (first a verbal warning and then she did it again...) Obviously I dont know what happened to her.. probably failed
