Default Pilot Questions on November MLC

Hi everyone, this is my first post, and I apologize if this is a stupid question, but will there be pilot questions on the November exam? It's my understanding that the purpose of pilot questions is to develop new questions for the CBT exam banks, so perhaps there aren't pilots on the non-CBT exams? This will be my first non-CBT exam, and I'm just trying to get as prepared as possible, and it would be helpful to know (for certain) how many questions I'm going to have to answer in 3 hours. Thanks in advance for any help!

Chelsey

We have been told there will be 25 questions. You should answer all of them to the best of your ability.

Even if there were pilots, you won't know which ones they are. So you need to do every problem that you can

The overwhelming response from last sitting was that the questions were too long to attempt 30 in 3 hours. My guess is they took that to heart and reduced the number.
