Paper Based Test (PBT) for PMP Exam in Pune in 2017

Schedule of Paper Based Test (PBT) for PMP Exam in 2017 for Pune, India

It is a good news for all PMP Aspirants who live in Pune or nearby area that PMI has scheduled one paper based test for PMP exam each month in 2017.

Pune has been a privilege city in this sense. It has got a special attention from PMI. There is no other city in India where PMI hosts PBT for PMP Exam every month. Other cities get this event once a while. I am not sure how many cities you may find in the world where PMI hosts paper based test every month.

A paper based test may save your travel to Mumbai and precious $150 (roughly Rs.10,000). It has some drawbacks also. PMI promises to give results in 4 to 6 weeks. In case of CBT (Computer Based Test) you get your result and report immediately. However most of the people who attempted PBT, got their results in 2 to 3 weeks.

Schedule of paper based test (PBT) for PMP Exam in Pune for 2017

Paper Based Test (PBT) for PMP Exam Schedule - Pune - 2017We do our best to keep the latest update here however PMI may change the schedule any time. Please refer PMI Website or Promatric website for latest schedule.


Last date of enrollment is the date before which you must get enrolled in the exam. To get enrolled in the exam, you should have your application approved.

So if you want to get enrolled in any of the above PBT exams, you should fill the application form, submit it and receive the approval before last date of enrollment. For example – If you want to give PMP exam on 10th June, 2017, you should have your application approved before 8th April, 2017.

Once you submit your application, PMI takes around a week to approve it. If your application is selected for audit, then consider around 20 to 30 days to complete audit formalities. In that case you may be able to take your paper based test only next month.

If you are in Pune, you have a great opportunity. Wish you all the best.

      Dear Vikram,
      Thanks for your query. Content wise there is no difference between PBT & CBT. Both are objective and complexity level is also same. I haven’t gone into that details like answers are marked with pen or pencil however I am sure there is a provision for changing answers. So I guess it would be pencil. I will confirm with one of the actual participants and let you know.

      Regards, Vivek

      Hi Avishek,

      Unfortunately there is no CBT centre in Pune. Mostly it will not be there at least in near future. PMI has a distance criteria to have another CBT. Pune is nearer than the distance required. Currently go to Mumbai for the exam.

      As I understand, it is done by Prometric centre. They decide a suitable venue for the exam every time. So there is no specific institute where it happen in Pune. Venue keeps changing. Once you are registered, you get full information.
