GMAT Test Centre in Kuala Lumpur / Petaling Jaya

I have received a couple of e-mails regards GMAT test centres in Kuala Lumpur or Petaling Jaya. Apparently, some could not find any centre listed in mba.com. After checking with Willy, the GMAT coordinator at Wordware Distributors (M) Sdn. Bhd., this is his reply:

"While you searching the GMAT Test center for your test, Wordware name always appear at the bottom. Perhaps you try to search for 10 or 20 centers, you will able to locate Wordware Distributors name at the bottom of the list."


Under Find a Test Center, enter "Kuala Lumpur" in the search box and then scroll down the result page. Click "Display more test centers" link. Wordware Distributors is listed as No. 7.

Good luck!

LUCENT Admission Counselling


LUCENT (Technologies) was famous for its Bell Labs, which was once part of the US telecommunications giant AT&T before Lucent was acquired by Alcatel. When I received an email from Tilia Wong about Lucent Education, the name Lucent brought back good memories of my years with the company (my so-called flying years).

So, what is Lucent Education about? Started by two ladies, one of them Tilia Wong from Malaysia, Lucent Education offers university admission counselling to top universities in USA for both undergraduate and postgraduate programs. Lucent Education is keen to support South East Asian (SEA) students in their admission to top USA universities. A recent article in The Star "Not Up to Mark" highlighted the growing concerns of the quality of Malaysian applicants and being not competitive. Perhaps it is timely that additional help from those who knows the US education system and how best to give you that extra boost you need (caveat: the quality of a candidate is very much dependent on his or her past achievements - academic and extra-curricular. Admissions consultants can only help you "polish" what you already have. Lucent Education and GMAT Malaysia are not responsible for the final outcome of your admission).

If you seek that extra help in your US universities admission, perhaps Lucent Education can help make you shine.

GMAT Malaysia Readers Offer!
Lucent Education offers a free 30-minute admission consultancy to all GMAT Malaysia readers. Please contact Tilia Wong at info@lucenteducation.com and mention the promotion code "GMAT Malaysia".
