    Hey Suchitra,

    I can confirm that the break time is 25 minutes on all divisions of the ARE. This change was made to alleviate candidate concerns about the new extended check-in process. See page 2 of the ARE 5.0 Guidelines

    Yes, the break time is now 25 minutes.  It has been suggested to time your break with a problem requiring some calculation...  This way you can continue contemplating the question during your much needed bathroom break.  These are long tests.  You should utilize every minute of your break.  Stretch, coffee, etc.  Prometric allows you some time to get settled back in your chair before checking back in on the timer.  There is however NO cellphone use or access to your locker during the break.  

    Could someone from NCARB please confirm if this is considered acceptable?  Thanks!

    Hey Eric and Suchitra,

    I can confirm that you can access your locker for snacks and water during your break but not for a cell phone or study material.
