If you do not accept this agreement presented on-screen within the allotted 5 minutes, your exam will terminate and you will be locked out of the computer. In addition, you will not be allowed to continue with your exam and your fees for that exam will not be refunded. According to Pearson VUE rules, you may not begin writing on your note board until your test has been started. Therefore, candidates should not use their note boards until after they have agreed to the Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA). If your exam terminates because you were writing on your note board during the NDA, Pearson VUE will not be able to start your exam again, you will forfeit all the fees paid for the exam, and you will have to reregister and pay full fees for the exam if you wish to take it again.
