It'll have to be because that's what you get .

The first step to determine this is to take one mock exam from your study materials and see how far you get in 150 minutes. If you aren't fast enough, look for ways to go faster. For example suppose you see an a try statement without catch or finally. you don't even need to think about the rest of the code - just answer that it doesn't compile and move on.

It is enough if you have practiced on mock exams well. Knowing the concepts is one thing and recalling them to answer questions is another.
Also, don't make any question an ego issue We have had a few guys in our training course who ran out of time because they "had to" answer a particular question. Lost several valuable minutes and failed the exam.

If you know all required exam topics and concepts very well and you have practiced with some mock exams, you won't run out of time on the actual exam. And you even might have some time left to review a few questions.

Using the search function of this forum, you'll find several topics with several tips and tricks to efficiently manage your time on the exam (and what you can do if your running out of time):
  • how do you manage your time during the exam?
  • Any tricks about how to manage the 120 min for so many question?
  • Managing our time - 70 nuts to crack - 2hrs to do it
  • A humble request for your process


  • In this topic you'll find a very good explanation about how to prepare/study with mock exams.

    Hope it helps!
    Kind regards,
    Roel

    For me 150 minutes was enough for 80 questions.

    Normal I left "loop questions" at the end.
