We had a guy in our class who was actually in this situation. He's now gone back to the states. His game plan used to be, do the multiple choice questions, cuz of course he could guess, and then sleep through the first half hour or so of the written portion, and then be the first to leave. Pretty sad, but now we know. haha.
