Most of us have faced problems while giving TOEFL because of the centers that we have chosen.But our experiences can help the next batches to select the right centers and thus have a decent exam.

I remember my TOEFL center which was probably the most messed up place in which i must have given any exam in my entire life.I would like all of you to list down the recommended and non-recommended test centers for your respective city.

City-Mumbai
Recommended - Prometric test center (Andheri)
Non-recommended-RIL cybercafe (Fort)...this id the damn place wer i appeared for TOEFL

Every time i wish to spam.....i find that maddy has either already spammed or he has locked the thread.

Really a nice thread for upcoming test takers

City : Chennai

Recommended : Prometric test centre (Nungambakkam, chennai)

Am not sure of the non-recommended sites in chennai Very Happy

It is not important "where" we go.
It it important "how" we go.

Not recommended: Alok International, Jaipur...

God knows if they can hear you speak! The center is noisy and they have really bad microphones...The mic test kept failing for me, and then the lady frm the center came and started talking loudly into it, for it to work!Center officials keep walking around in the testing area, disturbing you!

Location: Bangalore

Test Center Name: Almaz Software Solutions
Test Center Address:
#13, Gurukrupa Mansion,
(next to Camo Software)
Krishnareddy Layout
Domlur

Experience: Well managed place. Good systems. But I faced a few problems.
1. My audio test failed the 1st time.
2. The system kept hanging (is this correct english! Confused) so had to be rebooted four times during the test. But every time the test restarted from where the PC froze and infact it was helpful cos it helped me complete my notes in those sections and also got more time (~1 min cos of the reboot) to prepare a response!
3. They finally changed my PC in the writing section (so i could take another pee break!)
4. The AC was making the room really cold so needed the extra pee break.
5. Not at all noisy. It felt a bit congested but I dint feel any disturbance during the test at all!
6. Helpful guys.

In general I did get scared cos of the reboots! But one the flip side got a good score... 113.

So I would suggest do take this center if you dont get a better one like prometric. It is not bad. And I think only I and one more person (among ~30) faced this problem of the system freezing in the room that day.

"Everything happens for one's own good"
What's the good thing that happened? Well that is for you to decide!!!
Horrifying VI!

The Prometric Centre at Infinity Towers, Gurgaon is excellent as are all the Prometric centres. Smile
Also once you are in Infinity Towers, it feels like America not India!

I gave my TOEFL at KRISHNA CONSULTANTS, Nagpur.Well I have to say about this center that it is "BULL *word censored by forum*" .I have never seen such a worst examination center ever.Well Actually this is not basically a TOEFL center, it is basically coaching center.I don't know how ETS granted them as TOEFL center.
1.No A.C in the test roomMad
2.While giving exam had loads of disturbance,classes were going on when i was giving exam,what the hell was happening i don't know.They were playing Audio files in their class room.Surprised Guyz can u imagine this thing to happen.
3.The PC was not up to standard, well some of the PC monitors were pathetic.Can't describe here ....Whistle
4.No sufficient Staff to help you.
5.The System got hang at number of occasion.
6.While filling the details before Exam they were advertising there center for Joining Counseling center..Laughing

Well guyz i didn't had any other option.Well we have only single center in Nagpur.So friends beware of this center..

No more SOP Review and Profile Evaluation.I am not active here now
