Shared by Abishek about Prometric Center in Gurgon.
I took my GRE on 29th December, 2011, at Prometric center Gurgaon. Every thing was going fine till the 10 min break. After the break I asked the invigilator to provide me with the scratch papers.
To my surprise the guy told me to first finish the remaining last page of my previous scratch booklet, before he replenish it with the new one. It was really irritating.
I carried on with my exam hoping that it would not be hectic to ask for the scratch papers in the middle of the section I was working on, as it was mentioned in the instructions, also told by the invigilator to just raise your sheet and they will replace it.
The invigilators were not there only in the exam room, nor were they sitting on there desk to observe the camera screens. I raised my hand continuously for 4-5 mins. No one came, I wanted to go out but thought it would be a waste of time and may be the breach of rules.
I got totally frustrated and lost all my focus and thus ended up in the worst maths section which got reflected in my scores.
I would thus like to suggest to these Prometric people to pay more attention on the test takers instead of being busy in there own gossips.
Did you get scratch paper at all? If so, when did you get the paper?
I’m trying to find a contact in ETS to forward this post.
