I would envisage some inherent problems with any timer due to differences in download speeds and internet unavailability.

  • Thanks for your answer! Are you aware of alternatives to Google Forms that may enable me to accomplish this? – arungm29 Dec 3 '14 at 7:59
  • @arungm29 You can use quizandsurveymaster.com to achieve the same on WordPress. – Vikas Singhal Aug 27 '20 at 13:54
