Wondering if the test actually starts at closer to 9 ie 20 to 30 minutes to take attendance and fill out forms.

Does anyone know?

I'm debating whether to get up at 7 or 630 cuz I want sleep but want the 2 hours for my brain to be fully alert.

    I don't know what this will look like for an 8am test, but back in June we a 12:30 start, and I think we actually opened our test books somewhere around 1.

    There's a certain point where they won't let you in anymore so it doens't matter when it starts. Don't get there late. I think you need to be there at 830. The time the actual exam begins doesn't impact this. Don't make this mistake!

    I'll be there at 830 - no doubt. I just want to know how long it takes before we actually begin the exam.

    The June test I had to sit there for a good 30-35 minutes. Some rooms started earlier than my room did (William Mitchell test site separated by last name into classrooms) proctor misread the instructions and had to re-read them and passed out the materials wrong the first time. So I am assuming we had a slower start.

    for December 2013, I arrived at 8:10 and it felt perfect. If I had gotten there at 8:30 I would have felt rushed

    I think it's safe to say that you'll have an extra 20 mins for checking in & material distribution etc. so... Start time will likely be around 8:50-9.
