Things NOT to Do at the Test Center

Post by deepak » Thu Feb 15, 2018 12:41 pm

This past week we had a member who was asked to leave after looking at their notes during the break and another member last month had their score canceled for turning their cell phone on. These are very painful moments for everyone but these are GMAC's rules and it is important to know them and not to break them as the test administrator has their job to do. Make sure you know these.

Testing aids, such as calculators, notes, or study guides, are not allowed at any time in the test center. This means - you cannot even bring them to the test center!

Personal items, such as cell phones, backpacks, wallets, purses, or handbags (see What to Bring to the Test Center) are not permitted in the testing room

Access to Telephones, cellular (mobile) phones, or other communication devices, Notes, Scratch paper, Calculators or watch calculators, Watches, stop watches, or watch alarms, Personal data assistants (PDAs), Beepers or pagers, Photographic devices, Stereos or radios, Any other electronic devices that could aid testing, Books or pamphlets, Dictionaries, translators, or thesauri, Pens or any other writing utensils, Rulers or any other measuring devices will not be permitted at any time while you are in the test center, during the test session or during breaks. I read this that you can use them before or after the exam but not after you check in and before you check out.

You will not be permitted to leave the testing room without the test administrator’s permission

You will not be allowed to eat, drink, or use tobacco while in the testing room, but may do so during scheduled breaks

If you want to go outside during a break, you must inform the test administrator where you are going, and you must remain in the immediate vicinity of the test center. Interesting - you actually can leave the testing area! But remember, you only have 8 min break

You must arrive at the Test Center at least 30 minutes prior to your scheduled GMAT appointment. But then GMAC states also that "If you arrive more than 15 minutes after your scheduled appointment time, you may not be admitted"... so I guess anywhere between 30 mins before and 15 mins after.

And finally, just in case :wink: Weapons, including but not limited to firearms, knives, or any object that could be used as a weapon, are prohibited from the test center. These items are not allowed on the premises and may not be stored in the provided lockers. This policy includes off-duty law enforcement officers and persons with conceal and carry permits
