That's the one in Brookefield. It's a new center and is not directly run by Pearson. Try asking them whether they'll allow you to visit before you book the exam (they probably won't, but you should try). Given that the Pearson center has very few dates available in August (and nothing at all in September right now), you might just have to choose the new center.

Hi

This is one of the worst GMAT test center. The size of the whole center is like any street Grocery shop. Half of the area they have occupied at front desk with Chairs and lockers. Then , don't know for what reason they have one more small room which is not in use because there were no monitors etc. then remaining 20% of the area is kept for Test takers.

They have kept one table from one end to another end. Table is not made of wood (it is made of some powered wood , generally available in cheap furniture showrooms). and installed 5 monitors each very close to each other partitioned by thin opaque sheet. As the sitting area is very small , so CPU is right below your leg. You are unknowingly bound to hit while writing exam.

Since desk(long table) is very weak so if any one is on their quants and surely they solve question using Note pad then whole desk shakes and literally you can see monitor dancing.

The space in front of the monitor is so less that makes more uncomfortable to keep the long note pad given by test center.Either you keep keyboard or notepad . else move your keyboard bit here and there to adjust note pad.


The problem is : They did not understand the importance of the center from student perspective. They have focused more on every place except students area where they sit and spend 4 hours.

2 things if they do now then it can be called good center:

---> REMOVE THE DESK and PUT a good table (made with solid wood )where it should not shake.
---> Put only 4 Machines so that all candidates can sit properly and some space for leg and hand movement. Currently 5 monitors are there.


If you get any other center , then that would be nice.

Just did my GMAT at Brookfield. I wouldn't call it the worst, but yeah, it is sort of cramped up. As a tall guy, I found it difficult to maneuver in the given space and the desks are way too small. I had to push the mouse all the way to the back of the table and use it there while sort of wedging my pad in the remaining space.

The conditions weren't detrimental to my performance, but they could definitely improve in some areas.

Manipal is better (and a hundred times closer), but if you're out of options and all other dates have been booked, then go ahead and take it. Don't postpone just because a few inconveniences.

Well I just gave my GMAT in the Brookefield center It is not as good as the official Pearson center but it does the job.Nevertheless if you have other options then go ahead with those.I chose it because it was closer to home and I think it was a good decision because Bangalore traffic sucks and the car journey itself can tire you out.

I had a bad experience at this place (Unicenter, Bangalore) - I wouldn't take the exam at this place at any cost. Tables were shaky, significantly delayed start, unscheduled breaks (internet connectivity!), cramped space, useless earplugs (we could hear the traffic noise!). I would personally recommend to avoid this center any day!

Test center feedback - M.S college of Engineering, Bangalore

Experience summary - Negative experience. (couldn't give the exam as network was not working in the center.). Better to avoid.

Schedule summary -
Date - 21-8-2018,
Slot - 10.00 am to 1.00 pm

Key factors -
Location - It is quite far from central Bangalore. So, I had to travel for around 2 hrs to reach center.
Ambiance - Ambiance is good. There was no external disturbance and controllers were co-operative.
Technical - Computers were pathetic and I faced many network problem during the exam.

Detail -
1. Exam started 15 min late as network was not working.
2. After 30 min. into the exam, when everything was going OK, suddenly network went off and it took around 15 min to get the network again. (Controller tried a lot) This problem continued and network went off 3 times during initial 1.5 hrs of the exam.
3. Even there was a problem with network but at least, I was able to write the exam. But after 1.5 hrs, network went off permanently and this time, examiner couldn't do anything.
4. In the end, examiner created a ticket and requested me (and other 4 candidates) to re-schedule the exam on any other date.

P.S- It might be possible that this would be a unique case on a particular day but still if you have better choices like Unisoft/Pearson then avoid this center.
