Hello. In case you get 50% or more for the MCQs, you will automatically be directed to the Essays; there is no break; and the essay time starts counting immediately.
I took a break during my MCQ and Essays; I had to sign out, then checked in when I returned and had to sign in again; I lost about 7 min of my precious essay time.
If you can, try not to use a break. To do this, you may need to take less fluid on the exam day and use the bathroom before the exam starts.All the best!
