I think also if someone has time in a Pearson environment to leave for the bathroom, find some stashed notes, review enough to be helpful, and get back in the room and finish without time running out they were good enough to pass without looking at notes anyway.
It is NOT a short process to leave the room for a Pearson exam, I chose not to take a bathroom break and still ran out of time on my last problem.
Also people forget that the prior exam 5 sitting extended the testing time to 4hr 30min and to be honest I think due to testing facility restrictions they should consider it. The extra 30 min will help candidates who are “slower” but I don’t think that slow = unqualified. For others it just may offer them a bathroom break and time to review a few problems.
