Expert's answer

If an hour-long exam consists of two problems, each worth a maximum of 50 points and the student doesn’t have enough time to get full-credit on both questions, then this student will equally allocate his or her time spent on each problem to maximize the total score, so the 50% of time he will spend for both problems, as their maximum value is the same.
