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.

1. The experience on the test center was somewhat okay.
2. The test center is small. Only one invigilator.
3. The instance that happened with me: I kept waving my hand for some assistance, but the guy sitting was busy on a call . I actually had to stand up and go out to call him. Only advice for the center is to keep an invigilator to be more vigilant.
4. Location is quite convenient. In addition to that, there is a metro station only five minutes away. You will need to take an auto.
5. Restroom facility is good, since the center is located in Ansal University
6. I would prefer the Noida location for my second attempt.
7. No noise from external sources except for the typing on the keyboard by the fellow test takers. For that you surely need to have ear plugs, which the center fortunately provides.

Location: Bangalore, India

The test center is very very cramped. it literally looks like 1990's cyber cafe. my computer got hanged 2-3 times and i lost around 3 minutes every time.
The person in charge never responds if lift your hand. you have to run outside if you face any problem. the restroom was quite ok. the test centre is easy to locate. There was definitely a lot of traffic noise while writing the exam. When i was writing the exam, there were 4 people who were taking the exam along with me.One person was shaking the table and the whole bench was shaking . I pointed it out to the in charge , he was least bothered to even tell the person.If were to retake, i will retake in another location.

Location: Ahmedabad, India

I had given my first GMAT test on 25 November, 2014 at Ahmedabad test center named A1 Professional Assessment Center, Gujarat on 25 Nov. 2014. The test center is located at Satellite, Near Shyamal Cross Roads.
Location can be found out quite easily as it is a Big mall where the test center is located. One can reach the center in any Public or Private transport.

Staff at the test center was quite co-operative and helpful. My slot was 2:00 pm. I had reached before time. Freshen up facilities are nearby. Also, noise levels were very low even at the day time. The only problem I faced were during my AWA as typing sound from other keyboards were disturbing me. Temperature was well maintained as it was almost starting of winter. Locker facility was available at the center. Sitting capacity was for 6 students at a time. Scratch pads and markers were in good condition. Ear plugs were new. The response of the staff for scratch pads was a bit slow.

This review is for the test center on Dickenson Road (Off MG Road). The test center is easy to locate. Staff are generally helpful. There is just one restroom, which I feel could be maintained better. External noise level isnt an issue, noise cancelling headphones are provided on request. The testing area is neat and well maintained. Do note there is no elevator (kind of like big bang theory), hence be careful on the 3 flights of narrow stairs. There is a water dispenser and the waiting area is pleasant for taking breaks in between sections.Overall a good testing experience.

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.

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.

Location: Lima, Peru

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.
