Pearson VUE NOIDA

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by post count [?]

I took the GMAT at this center a few days back and the experience was good.
The center is in office building that houses a few other MNCs and is on the ground floor. Also the office building has a lounge waiting area . The center is around 1 km from the nearest metro station - sector 18 Noida . The parking facility here is better than Yusuf Sarai's .
I reached the center around 40 mins prior to my appointment time and was allowed to start with my exam straightaway .
-The testing room has around 15 computers . I was given headphones / noise cancellation devices / 2 markers and 1 scratch pad. I was given the seat next to the door, the only seat left :( . As a result of which i faced a lot of disturbance . Also during the verbal , one of the white covers of the headphone came off and then when i tried to wear the headphone without the cover my left ear started itching :/ . I requested to proctor to fix that as i was already lagging behind on the verbal . He was helpful though.
-Staff is polite and very helpful , much better than the ones at Yusuf Sarai center .
-The restroom is outside the center but in the same building on the same floor . One has to walk around 40 meters :) .But the bright side is that you don't have to wait as there are around 4-5 lavatories . :)
- There is a water cooler and lockers are decent.
- AC was functional and cooling was optimal.
-This is a fairly new center , just around 2 months old . The quality of everything is top notch.

Pearson VUE New Delhi

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by post count [?]

I have taken the GMAT twice at Pearson VUE Yusuf Sarai Center - New Delhi.
- The staff will allow you inside the center only 30 mins before the exam. So, don't reach the center too early . You will probably be exhausted waiting outside or sitting on the staircase. There are frequent traffic jams in the route to the test center.
- No parking space - Finding a parking spot will be a challenge
- Nearby metro station - positive
- The exam center is on 4th floor . On my first attempt , the elevator was not functional . So i was forced to take the stairs. Even though i am fit and play sports , i want to avoid any strenuous physical activity before the GMAT .
-The testing room has around 15 computers, each separated in a cubicle. I was given headphones / noise cancellation devices / 2 markers and 1 scratch pad.
-Staff is generally polite. After the AWA and IR, i had a few pages left in my scratchpad. Initially the female proctor refused to give a new pad. She insisted that i finish the remaining 2 pages.
When i begged, she gave me a new scratchpad.
-There is one restroom that is nearby. So, i had to wait for my turn to use it during the breaks. In one of the breaks, the janitor was in the washroom and he was cleaning it at his own pace. Only when i knocked the door a few times, he opened.
- One female test taker was denied admission because her identification proof passport might have expired a few days back. Even though she showed other government approved id proof- PAN card, she was refused admission. She was crying and there was some commotion in the center .I believe the staff could have handled the entire episode in a better way. I believe no fellow test taker will want to go through all this.
- There is a water cooler and lockers are decent.
- In the breaks, i was unsure of the time elapsed and the proctors refused to tell me. One of them told me that we should keep a note of time and was rude. Even though i believe proctors are not required to tell the time remaining, i envy people who got friendly proctors who helped them utilize the full quota of 8 mins .
- AC was functional and cooling was optimal.
- There was lot of noise during the AWA. Noise insulation in the room could have been better.
- Headphones are provided at the desks. One can also ask for ear plugs.
- As far as i have heard, this is the best GMAT center in Delhi.
.Also, most of the dates in this center were unavailable a month or two before . I believe, this center conducts a lot of other exams apart from the GMAT.
- I believe a new Pearson VUE Center will open in Aug 2016 in Noida. Thus, it would be beneficial for people who stay in South /East Delhi or Noida and others who fail to get an appointment in the Yusuf Sarai center because of limited slots .
