Hi guys,

I'm going to book my gmat test.

I want to go at 10 am.

I have options between 2 test centers, i can go to either one.

1. has only one timeslot in the morning (9am). Next timeslot is at 12;

2. has alot of time slots, starting at 9am, it has an timeslot for each 15min difference

Will test center 1 be more quiet? WIll there be ppl walking in and out of my room in testecenter 2.?

PLlz help me decide which one is more advantageous

It really depends on the center. I suggest you call both centers up and ask them directly about their procedures. Some centers will also allow you to visit them for a quick "inspection". Again, just ask them on the phone before you drop in. If they don't allow you to enter the center without a GMAT appointment, you could ask the people coming out of the center about their experiences.

Generally, you should be fine. Most Pearson centers are well run, so it's unlikely that you'll face any major issues.

Hi Anthonydh,

You should certainly book whichever time slot would make you most comfortable on Test Day (re: based on your practice work so far, at what time of day do you typically perform at your best?). Since the Test Center employees can only 'start' one Exam at a time, it's likely that all of the people in the Computer Lab with you will have different 'start times' (whether it's 1 minute, 15 minutes or some other length of time). Thus, there will be people entering and exiting the Computer Lab throughout your Exam (and you'll be entering and exiting too). There's no way around that particular issue - but most Test Facilities offer some type of noise-blocking option (ear plugs or headphones.

Before I can offer you the specific advice that you’re looking for, it would help if you could provide a bit more information on how you've been studying and your goals:

1) When are you planning to take the GMAT?
2) How long have you studied?
3) How have you scored on each of your CATs (including the Quant and Verbal Scaled Scores for each)?
4) What is your goal score?

GMAT assassins aren't born, they're made,
Rich
