As others have mentioned, parking is a big problem in this area. You would be better of taking a cab/rickshaw or having someone else drive you to the center.

Invigilator: They were friendly and polite. Absolutely no problems here.

Test Area: is quiet but I felt that the AC was a little too cold for me. Usually I have the AC dialed in at 23F at home The test center was more like 18F. So make sure you come dressed in layers.

Test Equipment: The computers are all Dell and relatively new/in good shape. The test pads are however, not like the Manhattan Test Pads. They are a little smaller, white in color and a little worn out. Also make sure that you check your pens before entering the test area. You will also be given pink foam ear plugs and tissue paper if you choose to accept these items.

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.

Location: Noida, India

Parking facility : There was enough parking space for a two-wheeler, cars would be parked on the roadside I guess, not a problem.
Invigilator Reviews : They were nice except for nobody came to respond twice in the middle of the Quants section. Both the pens provided got dried and it was quite tough situation, more on this later.
Environment : The center is roadside, so there are vehicular noises, but Range Hill Rd. is quite serene compared to the mad traffic on other city roads. You don't need to worry much about noises, it was fine with an earplug. The room for six was quite congested (like a typical cybercafe in India) and be ready to tolerate fanatic sounds of keyboard strokes.

I wrote the GMAT exam on 26th December in 2016 at the New Delhi’s Dwarka area. This center is located in a small shopping complex and has a gym on the floor right above. There was loud music being played at the gym which was immensely distracting. The 2 guys sitting as administrators were sympathetic to the distraction but said that they couldn’t do anything about it. There is no separate washroom at the center and the common one at the shopping complex was very bad. I would suggest anyone taking the exam at this center to avoid using the washroom. The place has ample parking but connectivity through public transport is not good.

NCBMS Islamabad

This review is for: * Pearson VUE GMAT Test Center

My experience is detailed at the thread linked at the end fo this review. Here are the few issues I faced.

1- The first address that shows up on Google maps when you search NCBMS, ICT is their old campus.

2- The test center is a low ceiling claustrophobic rented space not suited for an engaging test like GMAT.

3- Where they sit you to verify your palm prints, there were overheated lead acid UPS batteries and their acid fumes gave me a nasty headache.

4- The mouse pad skin was flaking off. Even the replacement was not up to the mark. Do not choose this center if you have any other option.

5- The Pens did not work initially. Replacements worked for a bit and then stopped working. I found out I had to keep them running constantly or they would dry up even after a few seconds of lying idle.

6- Official Graph Paper was scratched and dust laden which made it hazy and difficult to read.

7- Toilets were outside the premises of the test center outside the locked door. There was no toilet paper and the state of the toilet was appalling. It was in no way fit for human use.

Bad luck. Too noisy.

I went to the test center last march. It was okay. The lady in charge was very nice. And explain the mechanics very well. The only issue was that I lsot a couple of minutes of my exam because I couldnt enter to the room after the break because she was busy with another girl. And, during the verbal part of the test there were very noisy workers out of the center. I know it was not the Center to blame. but they can make the center less noisy. I was very distracted during the last part of the exam because of the noise. I hope they could solve that up.

The center was very quiet and apt for the students to give their best in such an environment. All the staff was very helpful in providing things you required. Security and cameras were in placed.

You would have lockers to place your stuff and it is advisable to reach at least 1hour prior to your test time to verify your passport and keep your personal belongings in the lockers.

The center is very clean and there would no language barrier at all, staff there is very accommodating.

Utilise your breaks diligently, you will be allowed to take your stuff from your lockers in the break time.

Chennai GMAT test center

Location: Chennai, India

I have heard many stories about how horrible a test center can be and many of my friends faced various issues at their test centers. After hearing those reviews, i was more than afraid about the environment inside and outside the test center. I was praying that there shall not be any construction site or market near the center and inside the center no problems shall be there. Believe me the experience was awesome. The faculty is very friendly. The center is a very comfortable place with no or minimal disturbances. As students appearing for different exams type through so keyboard sounds might bug you a little but that is also well managed by separating every student by sound proof barriers and you will also get one noise cancellation headsets. Personally i dont like those headsets as they generally are very tight for obvious reasons and also I would suggest Pearson Vue to use ear plugs instead.

All in all that place is a very comfortable place with no issues at all.

I was taking my third GMAT in London, High Holborn. I took other two GMAT in two different locations, and I can say that this is the best place among three.

1. Easy to access and easy to find. I stayed in Hyde Park, and only need less than 30 minutes using underground. Just 5 minutes walking from exit Holborn Underground Station.
2. I think all of the Pearson staffs were polite and respectful, no big issue about it.
3. Because of the location, I could find many test-takers. I think I met with more than 10 test takers here. Pearson provides three separate rooms for all of us. Everything was perfect, no issue.

Overall, I was satisfied. I am taking my fourth GMAT again in this center. Wish me luck!

The test center was not too difficult to find. It is in a one-story building, with lots of parking around it. The people who work at this site are all very friendly. They provide all the things you need for the test and very quick in reacting when you raise your hand for additional help. The computers, tables, etc are clean and the chair is not uncomfortable to sit in. Overall its a good site to take the test. It's a pretty quiet facility, so you wont get too much distraction besides the typing noise of other people. They do have ear plugs you can use to avoid the typing noise
