Prashant,
First there will be a survey (9 questions I guess!!!) about how good you are in each of the objectives.
Then there will be an agreement (non disclosure agreement and whether you want to give out ur contact details ) and so on...
This process should approximately take about 10-12 mins out of the 135 minutes allotted to you.
(provided you dont concentrate on these survey questions as if they are real exam questions )
If you are reasonably prepared for the exam, you should have time to go through the exam twice( atleast , thats what I found for myself... opinions may vary)
Take a deep breath and the breathe out when you start the exam...(Thats why they say exam is a "breeze" )
Good luck and you will do fine
