Location: Ahmedabad, India

I appeared for GMAT at Ahmedabad, India test center thrice. The center is located in a shopping complex near Jodhpur Cross Roads.

The center is in one of the shops of the complex and is not that big or lush. Just basic facilities such as lockers, drinking water and lavatories are available. The capacity of the center is six persons at a time.

The lady, moderator at the center, is extremely polite and co-operative. While appearing for the test I was suffering from flu and I informed her of the situation, and she willingly offered me a seat which was away from Air conditioner. She will always greet you whenever you enter the center and will also wish you luck before the exam starts and after every break.

Still one would find some disturbances because the center is in shopping complex and prone to some noise.

Overall, it was a good experience appearing for GMAT at this center.

Pearson Professional Centers, Nelson Chambers 'E' Block, 115, Nelson Manickam Rd, Rajaram Mehta Nagar, Aminjikarai, Chennai, Tamil Nadu 600029

The place is located behind the Ampa Skywalk. Although it is located in the city limits, I find it somewhat difficult to reach as there was a huge traffic around the areas. If you are coming from outskirts of the city, you need to start 2 hours before provided if you are coming by your own transport. If you are using public transport coming from outskirts of the city, it will take huge time for you to reach.

I used google navigation to find the place as I was not much aware of this area. This is highly recommended as it will also update you about the current traffic situation.

Staffs were much helpful starting from verification process till the end of the exam. The facilities such as lockers and restrooms were not bad.

The place is silent and manageable. However only during AWA, it was noisy as there was too much typing and since the place is too small.

Hello GMAT Club members,
I took my 2nd attempt at GMAT on 8-Sep-2015 at Pearson Test center in New Delhi. I took my 1st attempt also at the same test center in May-2015. Following are the Pros and Cons that i would like to share, specific to the test center.

Pros:
1) The center is well connected with Delhi Metro, easy to find and is properly marked on Google Maps.
2) If you are traveling by car, parking can be an issue so please come a little earlier, or ask someone to drop you off and then pickup later.
3) Please note that the test center only allows you inside the premises 30 min prior your slot time. If you arrive earlier, if would be advisable to locate a nearby coffee shop or restaurant and sip a coffee and spend your time in an air-conditioned environment, particularly in summer time.
4) The staff at this center is very professional and helpful.
5) They provide earbuds and locker.
6) The lighting is good. AC is ambient and very comfortable, neither too cold nor warm.
7) Computer screen and Mouse are in good condition.
8) The staff responds promptly, whenever you raise your hands. This is very good considering the fact that there are 2 invigilators and 10-12 testing systems.

Cons:
1) There is only one toilet in the premises. This can be a spoiler if more than one individual take their break at the same time. I was lucky both the times that i was alone during my break.
2) During my 1st attempt, a nearby office in the same building was undergoing renovation. On two separate occasions, there was a loud noise of drill bit being used to punch holes. This was ridiculous and broke my concentration. Thankfully, the earbuds helped a little. I had expected this, when a candidate exited just before i was supposed to start by test, and demanded that he be given a suggestion form to lodge an official complaint.
In my 2nd attempt, the renovation in office next doors was already complete, so no external disturbance, phew !! So feel free to opt for this center.

Overall, the center is nice and i would recommend it if you are in New Delhi area.

Regards,
Ekansh.

I gave my GMAT in July, ’15 and this was second attempt at GMAT, both at the same centre. There a few points about the centre –

Pros:

1. The centre is handled by Pearsons itself and thus the quality of services is good. The staff is very polite and has good knowledge of the processes involved such as identification etc.

2. It is easily accessible via public transport. Sometimes there is traffic as the centre is located in busy community centre, so if the exam is in the afternoon slot, keeping some buffer time would be a good idea.

3. The noise level inside the centre is very low. Apart from occasional horns (that too not very loud) the place is free from external disturbances. There is no disturbance due to external noises. They also provide ear plugs.

4. The lobby is big enough to walk around and relax yourself during breaks. The washroom is clean and well maintained.

5. The environment inside the test room is nice to get your concentration right and your brain running with proper lighting and comfortable AC temperature.

6. Computer screen is large enough to focus, and the keyboard and mouse are new and comfortable to work with

Cons:

1. The centre has about 10 seats per slot. This can cause a little bit of a disturbance if you are among the first 1-2 to be seated because by the time the last test taker is seated you have already started the exam this cause some disturbance. Also during the breaks many test takers come out simultaneously. This by itself is not the problem, but when compared to only one restroom in the facility, it becomes a straight negative. I had to wait for my turn in the first break, and thus got a bit late and lost 2.5 minutes in my quant section.

2. Parking is very difficult to find. It’s a community centre and all the parking is taken up by commercial vehicles. If you can do take a cab, auto or metro. Though if you want to come by car, you can find parking at the metro station nearby (I think its Green Park metro station)

Overall my experience with the centre was between good, if not excellent (Got late due to waiting to go to restroom).

I've taken GMAT twice - once at the Dwarka Centre and once at the Yusuf Sarai Center New Delhi. Well, I must say they are exact opposite of each other.

In terms of staff, Pearson Center has really cooperative staff who actually listen to your whims and fantasies.
They have their own washroom unlike the Dwarka EduPro centre where I had to go from 4th to 2nd floor and into a ladies toilet that was actually a flooded common toilet... Yukkk..

Also, Pearson center's test room is sound proof and quite comfy. The PCs are bigger, charis are good and most importantly, the separators from fellow test takers is really good. At EduPro it was like a primitive cyber cafe with not more than a foot high separators... no use.

I was an outstation candidate so cant comment on parking space but the nearby area is good with great connectivity by metro trains.

I would really suggest that whether u have to postpond/prepond your appointment, dont book EduPro centre. Go for Pearson center.

Thanks for reading. All the best.

I really liked this test center. This was the third time I took the exam. This center was very accommodating. I have asthma and as a result i was coughing pretty often at the time when i took the exam. They let me take the cough drops and my asthma pump. Additionally, the log in and out was quick. During GMAT you get quick 8 minutes break and the representative was very good in terms they would enter their log in information when i am actually on the break so all i have to click is enter. Every sec counts when the break is only 8 mins. So, I thought it helped me when i enter the test center with 30 secs or less left.

The staff is friendly and very eager to help. The institute as well as the test room is very clean. The test room has only five computers. The test center is close to Montevideo downtown and is easy to find.
Regarding to noise level, the place was very quiet and I was the only person taking the exam, these are perfect conditions for taking your GMAT.
One negative aspect is that I had to lose one minute or so, in order to get more paper for the quantitative section. I had to get up of my chair and go to the door in order to call the staff to bring me more paper.
However, I want to make a special mention to the staff, during my exam the computer froze and they solved the problem in a matter of minutes. After I was done with my exam they let me use one of the computers to communicate with my family.
Another positive aspect of this test center is that it usually has more available dates than the test center in buenos aires.
Finally, if I had to retake the exam I would definitely return to this place

This review is for: * Pearson VUE GMAT Test Center
Location: Mumbai, India

Staff: Good, Polite
Hardware: Good, Monitors are placed on the CPUs so the monitor is relatively a little high. No technical issues or uncomfortable keyboard/mouse
Locker: Size is good. You can fit in a backpack. Also, you can keep things outside too
Environment: Quiet. Earplugs are provided and I would recommend that you use it. A little cold

Notes
They have a water cooler so you might not want to carry a bottle.
You can carry a pull over inside the testing area.
Around 13 people can give the exam simultaneously

The area is known for traffic congestion so it's better to take appointment in the afternoon or morning.

You'll have to wait outside in case you come earlier than an hour before your appointment. There is no place to sit outside.

It is situated in Solitaire Corporate Park. You have to enter through smaller entrance, ahead of the main entrance. From there you enter into the first building to the left. The center is on the first floor. There will be watchmen to guide you there

The center is located in Dwarka Sector 23 market and well connected through Metro stations in sector 9 and Sector 21 (little bit closer to this)
It has seating arrangement for 6 people at a time and is more like a Internet cafe. There are lockers available but the overall space is bit congested. Since we have Airport runaways nearby, there are flights taking off and touching down. You also have a school nearby and during afternoon hours you have lot of honking going on as there are buses and cars parked around the market.
There is a toilet which is about 100 meters from the center and you better walk fast to use the same.
Morning slots and evening slots will be better although I have not uses those slots.
Car parking is free and better to park it in complex or back side.

Excellent place, near by metro station is green park.There were a lot of landmarks given so it was easy to locate.

If you are driving then finding parking space can be a daunting task so t better to take metro or auto.

Staff was very professional, made everything clear to me, they also gave me 2 markers and ear plugs without even asking.During the breaks they were quick and they valued my time.

Lockers were large enough and restroom(small) was clean.

Noise level was zero,still i got ear plugs, proper light and AC temperature was comfortable.

The computer was large it was easy to focus, mouse and keyboard were also good.
