Post subject:  Time Warnings for CEM

Does any one know the time warnings given in the CEM exam in Trafford?

Is it played on a tape? In the mocks we have done sometimes there is a 5 minute warning. But nothing to say 1 minute to go.

I think watches are not allowed. And we are trying to avoid blanks, so a warning to say 1 min or 30 seconds to go would be helpful.

I’m pretty certain they always get a 1 minute warning - at least in each mock exam my ds did last year he did. The strategy was always that when the 1 minute warning is said he had to go through the ones he’s missed and start checking boxes then if time left over at the end see if there’s time for more educated guesses, particularly for question he might not have got round to doing. I used to remind him of this method each time and he never said to me after that he didn’t get a 1 minute warning.
