FOR DAY 2 . 6 blocks, each is 45 minutes with 30 questions. + CCS CASES (13 CASES)

  I did like this and I think it worked for me.
we have 45 min break both days and if you save 5 min of tutorial that 50 min.
Day 1 -
5 MIN break after block 1 and block 2 = 10 min.
20 min after block 3 = 30 min
10 min after block 4 and 10 min after block 5 =50 min.
Towards the end of ex you need more break as already tired.

Day 2

5 min break after 2 blocks since these are shorter.=5 min
5 mins after block no 3&4 = 10 mins
20 min after block no 5 and 6 = 30 mins total
than for CCS
10 min break after 4 cases or you can take 5 mins after 2 cases.

Again 10 min after 2nd go of 4 cases or 5 mins every 2 cases. = total 50 min

hope it helps.
