Based on the information we have, it would be best for an applicant to NOT take more than one minute for any question in any test section
. Speed is crucial here, so each question must be answered as fast as possible. Let's say, a certain question is difficult and an applicant has already spent about 30 seconds or more on it, without any clue about the answer. Then the applicant has the option to flag the question for later review
and return to it, after finishing all the other questions in that particular test section. This will save time, but care must be taken to not flag too many questions for the end
, because this will cause panic in the last few minutes of the test section.
We hope this has answered frequently asked questions regarding the time duration of the entire test and the individual sections and also the time available per test question, in a comprehensive manner. In conclusion, the ATI TEAS is very challenging in terms of the time limits and the difficultly level of questions in each test section. It is also quite evident that sufficient preparation before the actual test through review of the top study guides and practice tests is essential for an applicant's success in the test.
