The full assessment consists of 180 multiple-choice questions divided between 2 sessions of 2 hours 45 minutes (165 minutes) each with 90 questions in each session.
You have an individual timetable because you are required by the SRA to answer questions on only certain elements of Part A of the Day One Outcomes. Candidates with exemptions are allowed the same amount of time per question as candidates sitting the full assessment.
You will be advised of the length of your assessment by email shortly after the Booking Deadline.
Finish times vary considerably because of the individual timetables. Generally, if your appointment length is:
- Less than 3 hours 30 minutes (210 minutes) long your MCT consists of 1 session
- More than 3 hours 30 minutes (210 minutes) your MCT is divided into 2 sessions and you will have a break of 60 minutes after the first 2 hours (see below).
