Candidates will have 20 seconds to think about their question and up to 1 minute to give their response. There is not an opportunity to re-do the answer to the official video essay questions. There are 10 practice questions which candidates can complete as many times as they like to get comfortable with the format and technology. The practice questions and experience will simulate the actual video essay experience, so this is meant to be a useful tool and help applicants feel prepared.
