[Test Center Review] Test Center - University Of Victoria, Victoria, British Columbia/Canada


Morning test start, so make sure you arrive at David Turpin building at the very latest 8:30am. The check-in will be right in the main floor when you enter in the building.


David Turpin Building - Large Class Room - Holds a couple hundred students

What kind of room:

The seating rows are like stadium seating sloping down towards the chalkboard

How many in the room:

I would approximate the attendance to be close to 150 students


Large tables with swivel chairs that are very uncomfortable and do not allow for much adjustment because they are fastened to the tables.

Left-handed accommodation:


Noise levels:

Noise levels are very good. Very few distractions.


Parking is also very good with a huge stadium parking lot right across the road from the test taking building. Because the tests are done on Saturday there is usually plenty of space and I only had to pay $2.50 for the whole day.

Time elapsed from arrival to test:

Arrival time 8:30 - Finish time 1:40pm October 2015 write date (it was very unorganized for this write date)

Arrival times 8:30 - Finish time 12:40pm February 2016 write date

Irregularities or mishaps:

In October 2015 there was a section that no 5 minute warning was announced which was frustrating for many test takers that day. The staff at the February write were much more organized and more pleasant to deal with.

Other comments:

Would you take the test here again?

Yes, definitely. Although it would be nice to have more comfortable chairs for the 4 hour experience.

Date[s] of Exam[s]:

Oct. 2015 and Feb. 2016
