GRE Registration 2023: Complete Guide
Before applying for GRE, you must be aware of the related rules and conditions laid down by ETS.
Things to Consider
  • Prior to choosing your GRE exam date, check the application deadlines of your desired colleges/universities, so that your scores are reported within time. GRE scorecards are sent to your selected institutes around 10-15 days after your test. Experts recommend that you should apply for GRE nearly 60 - 90 days before the first university deadline. With this approach, you would have sufficient time in hand to re-appear for the test, if required.
  • There needs to be a gap of 21 days between your GRE attempts. GRE General Test can be taken five times in a rolling 12-month period. This applies even if you have canceled your previous test scores.
  • The test dates are offered on a first-come, first-served basis, and some of the test centres are available only on certain dates. You must create an ETS account to stay abreast of the up-to-date information. So, keep a tab on the latest dates and apply well in time.
  • Decide which fellowship sponsors or grad schools you want to receive your scores. You can choose a maximum of four institutions while registering for GRE. If you want to send your scorecard later or to more than four schools, you can get the additional scorecards for a specified fee.
  • You can use the GRE Search Service to look for information about some of the participating graduate/ business/ law schools, fellowship sponsors and related organizations. This service will let you know about the scholarships, fellowships admissions, and other opportunities offered by different institutes/universities. During GRE registration, you will see an option to sign up for its Search Service. Also, you can use/sign up on this tool any time from your ETS account.
