    They still process whatever was written, correct? I was done and about to end the 4th testlet, but the clock beat me to it and made me end the session itself. I just wanna make sure they count all the stuff i wrote..It would be very dissapointing if they dont..

    Thanks in advance for any input on this matter!

    As far as I know, anything you typed in prior to the time running out is saved and graded.

    Yes… I would assume so. I literally finished typing my last word with 2 seconds left… didn't even have the time to click “end test” (or whatever the option says) as it timed out. I'm sure that everything you typed up to that point is saved and you're graded on that.

    I'm in the exact same boat. I ran out of time on the third one. Just as I was signing my name at the end it timed out. Luckily, I was able to put down my first and last name. However, I got greedy and wanted to put “, CPA” after my name. It timed out as I put in the “,” so I'm hoping they don't count that as a punctuation error. I am also worried about the WC portion. By the time I got to the final memo I only had about 4 1/2 minutes so I was really rushing to just get something down. It's too late to stress about it now. We will find out by the 11th.

    Yeah I took my BEC exam for the first time and I was really surprised at how much time I took up for the three parts. I gave myself like 1hr and 10 minutes for it and only had 40 seconds left after I reread my work. And yes, the system automatically saves everything you typed. I remember for REG I timed out why I was still BS-ing some of my answers and managed to get a buzzer beater answer in just in time. I ended up doing “Strong” on the SIMs portion of the exam.
