Suggested minutes for questions

I sat DFSL last week, the suggested times for questions were 55 minutes, 25 minutes, 25 minutes . I'm sure in other papers they've been 35, 85 minutes etc.

I know these are only supposed to be indicative, but would be it be too difficult for the AAT to set questions that can be slotted into 30, 60 or 90 minutes brackets?? I've enough figures to be dealing with in an exam to be worrying about finishing a question 55 minutes after 9.47! make it an hour and be done with it!!

Anyone else feel the same?

    lol!! Never really thought about it! I usually just round it to the nearest 5 mins. And write the time at the top of the question. But i do get your point!

    I normally use it as a rough guide but dont take is as set in stone.

    To be honest I never take any notice of it as I just do the paper and keep an eye on the clock for the finish time. I look at the whole paper so I have an idea of what needs to be done and then just get on with it

    I was recommended a good stopwatch so that it doesn't matter what time you start
