GMAT online internet speed system check - help  [#permalink]

Hi,

Asking if anybody has encounter this while doing system check?

My internet speed check fails despite my numerous tests to various sites (such as speedtest, downloading and uploading files from dropbox, google drive and onedrive) clock me more than 50Mbps.
I am from Singapore and I tested my internet speed using different PCs/laptops, wifi, wired and mobile hotspot tethering as well as using different ISP yields the same failed check result.

Does anybody knows if I can still take the exam if my internet speed check fails?

Two sources: #1 at mba[dot]com site, gmat online system requirements and #2 when you run the system check software test, it will run an internet speed check. I am not sure if test taker can proceed with the exam should the check fails.


#1
At the system requirements, there is this para in table that explicitly states - Internet Connection: "A consistent connection speed of 1 Mbps down/up is required. We recommend testing on a wired network as opposed to a wireless network. Tethering to a mobile hotspot is explicitly prohibited."

I can't post a link as I am a new member. The link below, "." is obfuscated with [dot].

#2
goto home[dot]pearsonvue[dot]com/gmac/onvue ; scroll down to
"Run system
test Be sure to run your test on the same network and computer you will use on exam day."
Click on "test my system"

It seems doing a system check on a Sunday is not recommended. Pearson Vue's servers are probably under maintenance.

Anyway, I just passed my internet speed check and managed to have a quick run thru of the system check.

Hi rocka338,

I think the safest thing to do is to give the folks at GMAC a call, so you do not have any surprises on test day. You know what I mean?

It turns out that my internet speed was ok during the exam day. As mentioned in my earlier post, it seem the issue was doing the test on a Sunday.
