Hello,
I am taking part three next tuesday and therefore I want to ask some questions:
The exam is an essay about five questions or so, what do they normally ask about the architecture and how long should the answers be generally?

best regards

Generally... they ask you about various features and design decisions that you made during the course of your work on Part II. Anything that factors into that design is fair game, from functional requirements to choices of technology, to ways to handle the non-functional requirements.

As for length of the answers, the general rule to follow is "long enough to answer the question without being unnecessarily verbose". There's no cut-and-dry measure for what constitutes a sufficient answer to the questions in the essays - for the original SCEA, I think most of my answers were along the lines of two paragraphs. For the new one, my answers were longer, but I also felt more confident about my design on the SCEA5 project than I had on the original.

If you are referring to the SCEA old,

I had given part-3 within 10 minutes after uploading the part-2 assignemt.
(we have a autorized prometric testing center on campus)

As for your query - I finnished part 3 (4 to 5 questions) in about 10 minutes. most answers were --- "I have documented this in the index.html section x.y.z"

Then re-visited each, and re-phrased the answers to include what-ever I could re-collect from my submission. (maybe added a little bit more explicit details/ examples too)

Hopefully did not contradict with what I had submitted - as I have not received my score yet.

I will never suggest this @ "I have documented this in the index.html section x.y.z"
Part III is meant to verify that you understand your design. I think mentioning that the answer to this question in index.html will simply result in automatic failure.
