I was proofreading my second/last essay until the last second (foolishly). I was sure I had a bit more time and was about to click "next" Instead, I got a "you ran out of time" message and then I clicked "exit exam" Afterward, I thought, "what if the program does not automatically save and only does so once you hit "next" for each question?" In that case, could there be a blank box for my essay#2? .... This is driving me insane. And now, I am wondering whether I should go ahead and reschedule a second attempt for just the writing portion because I am in a rush. It could take 2 weeks before I even know whether I screwed up. I am quite confident that if my work did, in fact, save, I would pass. On CBEST, there is no "save," I don't believe, or "submit' button. Only, "next" Does anyone know? Ahh!
