You have a choice of questions perhaps ? Answer 2 from 3 or similar ?

So they are giving you some time to read the questions available to choose from.

I find reading time really useful, it allows you to read the exam through slowly so you understand all the questions. It also helps you to balance the questions better.

So that you don't lose more "Working Time" having to read through the paper chosing what questions to do.
