If I request the accommodation of extended time on the PMP exam, will I receive more difficult questions? I understand that questions are randomly generated from a database.

I read PMI's “Requesting Test Accommodations”, understand their stated policies, and my doctor has completed PMI’s “Test Accommodations Request Form”.

Is there any possibility of being flagged for a more difficult subset due to extended time?

That's not the way PMI works. You will not be given a more difficult exam just because you requested special accommodation. PMI is not like the airport security, where some people are always "randomly" selected for extra scrutiny...

So... no need to worry!
