So i gave my gmat at the hinduja college center and would like to say that please "AVOID THIS CENTRE" . The staff is very unprofessional and the staff doesnt know what to do and how to act in such situations. There are many cons of this centre plus ive given my exam at the pearson andheri center , which is way better than any other centre in Western India.

I had appeared for GMAT yesterday at Hinduja college, Mumbai. I haven't seen such a bad exam center till day in whatsoever exams I had given in the past. My experience is as under:
1) When I entered the test room, on my left, I guess there were 3 accountants or staff of the college, who were talking on a bit loud note which was disgusting.
2) In front of my seat, there was a cabin, where local staff were passing on by and talking on a loud note. Their voice was distracting me while I was taking test.
3) one madam was consistently roaming in and around me, which resulted in loss of my concentration and hence my gmat was screwed.

A friend of mine who took GMAT at multiple Centers was shocked beyond words ( coz he never ever experienced such a GMAT test atmosphere) when I shared my experience. His view was that Pearson has gone lax with the Center in mumbai as the one at marine drive has closed down n this is highly irresponsible on part of Pearson to allow such a center to conduct the test as the test requires highest level of concentration n a stable undisturbed environment..

I feel that this Center is not following the norms prescribed by Pearson n at the same time Pearson is also not very much concerned with this unprofessional behaviour..

My advice is avoid this center under any circumstance ( even if no other center is available, instead take a different date)..

I gave my test at Andheri ! They are really professional but it’s isn’t like it gives you the ultimate test giving experience . My greatest complaint is the their Pens . It never works . You send 2/3 tries to get their pens to work . It’s an absolute waste of time especially in a time restricted exam like gmat .
They are upto 3/4 people writing the exam so it’s not the ideal experience as mentioned by many test takers in the forum below . There are disturbances but their noise cancelling headphone helps cut down the noise but then all I can hear is my heat thumping . Honestly I dint have a great experience in Andheri either .

I appeared for the test in Aug, 2018. I found it adequate.
They had 3 pens in working condition. A water bottle besides my desk.
Noise cancelling buds were provided which were really needed as I could hear the College's Loudspeaker if my headphones were not plugged in.
They allowed us inside & let us start the test once palms were scanned.
Washrooms were ok.
They provided us with locker & key.

This is long overdue. So, here it goes..

I took the GMAT early November at the Hinduja Test Centre.
As everyone knows, it is a college. So, the place was milling with students. The "centre" is located on the 4th floor- the security guards at the entrance were helpful with directions.

On climbing the flights of stairs and reaching the 4th floor, a Pearson board stares you in the face and you know you've reached the right place. The reporting time was an hour before test time. This time was used by the attendants to take scans of our palms, our picture and finally to register us. This was done for all the students attempting the exam on that day.

Once registrations were complete, all the students were herded towards the "centre". Right outside it, there was a set of 16- 20 miniature lockers, enough to stuff your bag in. The keys were to be kept in our position. Also, water bottles were stacked by the lockers. Students could use this water or leave their own here and use them when needed. No water bottles, watches, bracelets, rings, additions on person were allowed inside the "centre".

The "centre" was a regular college computer lab with about 20- 22 computers arranged in a "C" formation (long rectangular room with ~10- 2- 10 computers along the 3 three walls leaving the entrance). Students were free to take up any computer they wanted but they were to leave one free between adjacent candidates. Also, the computers were separated with these big rectangular cardboard cutouts (like a partitioning screen). So, a person could not look at their neighbour's computer even if they tried.

Once seated, a student saw these items in front of them:
1. 2 markers
2. A spiral bound, laminated notepad (that's how it's erasable, as given on the GMAT website)
3. A pair of earplugs (small spongy ones like those given on airplanes)
4. The monitor and a desktop keyboard
5. One's own passport and locker key

The attendants then clearly explained the directions/ rules for the test- how to use the earplugs, what to do with the screen, no talking, etc. All questions were answered patiently. Unruly computers were looked at and sorted as well (mine seemed to have been hung at the exam start screen)

Once the test started, everyone was on their own. With the earplugs in, even the fan noises were drowned out (no idea if noisy college students existed after that point). The notepads were a little cumbersome to use since I wasn't used to practising on a smooth surface. The test interface gave me no problems whatsoever and neither for any of the other students there. For most of the time, the test attendants were outside the centre/ lab. If they did enter, they remained seated at one of the vacant chairs away from the students.

No idea if the Andheri centre is super amazing as compared to Hinduja but I had no complaints. I chose Hinduja because the Andheri centre wasn't available and I didn't want to delay any longer. At the end of the day, it was not a bad day at all (even though I was apprehensive at the start).

Trust this helps!!
