GRE & TOEFL Test Center Reviews :





GRE and TOEFL test centers are easily available throughout India, but the quality of these centers are often difficult to verify without actually visiting the center. This makes picking a test center one of the most crucial steps in your test preparation for your GRE/TOEFL. A great test center will only help your score, so don't take this step of your preparation lightly! 

Yocket tried to make this easier for test takers by curating test center reviews from users in the community. A large number of Yocketers helped us out in compiling a report for all future test takers for the GRE and TOEFL! The users were asked to evaluate the centers (on a scale of 1-5) on the following parameters:

Location: How easy to find was the test center? A test center that is easy to find reduces the chances of last-minute problems that might cause you to lose your cool. Centers are usually prominently identifiable, but it's a good idea to check the user rating of your preferred test center before you register. 

Punctuality: Did the test begin on time? Timing is very important during these exams as they are four hours long. A delay in the morning exams might just extend it beyond lunch time - combating hunger while taking this test is definitely not ideal. 

Proctors: How helpful were the proctors? The proctors are responsible for ensuring your test goes as smoothly as possible. Find out whether your preferred test center has considerate and attentive proctors, as reviewed by your fellow users. 

And for TOEFL, 

Mic/Headset Services: How good was the headset provided? The Mic and Headset are crucial to TOEFL tests, given that the listening and speaking sections rely entirely on them. Check the rating assigned for these accessories by your fellow users below. 

The table also lists an average score for each center and any important feedback listed by users.
