Just finished my exam,haven't got my results yet - it went OK, had to rush the end, so no chance to review my answers, but.....

The timer ended,and it asked me to review any answers I wanted,and change them!? I told the invigilator, and she told me that it was best not to, because it was a set time limit, which I agreed with.

Hope I haven't made a mistake!!! (IIt didn't make sense though, as I said to her I could've spent all afternoon reviewing them!)

And what's the result? Hopefully some good news after all the effort you've put in to prepare for the OCAJP7 exam.

I have to say I'm a bit surprised you'll get such a question when the timer ends. You would expect that the exam finishes immediately once you have run out of time. Otherwise it would be very easy to bypass the time limit: just mark every question for review and you'll have a complete afternoon to answer those questions. Sounds like a bug in the exam software to me...
Maybe you could see the marked questions in read-only mode, although I don't have a clue about the added value of this feature.

Kind regards,
Roel

Yeah, maybe you are right, maybe it was read only - I didn't want to invalidate my exam by testing it out! It definitely did not look read only though.

Anyway, I got 91! Messed up a few at the end, but pleased! Honestly thanks for yours, and everyone else's help, it's been invaluable. Many beers have already been had, unfortunately not Belgian, that will be tomorrow's mission!

Will definitely write up my experience in the relevant place when I get back to my pc

Looking forward to read it! Maybe it might be a good idea to wait until you are completely sober again

Based on this experience of another rancher, you can review all questions in read-only mode once the timer has ended. So you can view all the questions, but can't modify any of the checkboxes/radiobuttons. When you are ready reviewing the questions, you can click the "Finish" button to terminate the exam.
