What To Do If Your GMAT Experience is Disagreeable?

GMAT exam violations

Things in life don’t always go according to plan. Despite mature processes and strict guidelines for conduct, it is possible that your GMAT may get disrupted or adversely affected by circumstances or people beyond your control. This could be anything from a power cut to a loose cable on your computer to a fellow test taker who causes a disruption. The important thing is to keep a cool head under such circumstances and not put yourself in a position where you are the one who has to explain things to the test administrator and/or GMAC/Pearson VUE.

At Byjus, we emphasise discretion on the part of our candidates – choose when and how to complain carefully, keeping in mind that you can neither make false accusations nor afford to get caught up in a situation where you lose time you would otherwise use in the test. Nor should you end up in a mental state that prevents you from doing your best on the GMAT.

In case you feel that you have fair cause for complaint, you can reach out to the GMAT Customer Service team immediately after you finish your test.
