What Are The Dates For The GRE Exam?
In India, unlike other competitive exams, the GRE exam does not have any specific exam date. As a GRE applicant, you can register and create your own ‘My GRE Account’ by paying GRE exam fees of US$205. Interestingly, a GRE applicant can take the exam up to 5 times in a 12-month calendar year with a gap of 21 days from the previous attempt.
Nonetheless, you have the privilege to take the exam at any date during the year from the list of GRE exam dates by taking an appointment with the nearest GRE exam center. However, you need to be careful while submitting your application during the peak season particularly from September to December as you might not get your preferred examination center and may be compelled to book a different date, time or exam center which may not be at close proximity to where you reside.
Since the GRE exam is conducted throughout the year, this implies that you need to be extra cautious about your GRE exam dates and preparation schedule so that you can take the GRE computer-delivered test or the GRE paper-based test on the scheduled date. You just need to book an examination slot per your convenient timings and preferred location. The computer-based GRE test is being offered around the year at nearly 1,000 Prometric test centers in more than 160 countries worldwide.
You can check the GRE test centers from Educational Testing Service(ETS), the official website of GRE test by locating the GRE exam centers and dates page, select the type of test that you wish to take(General/Subject) and choose the preferred location. However, the page might also reflect the GRE test centers for a certain period like two months, you need to key in the Restricted Reservation Code(an optional feature) and choose the date from the list displayed. The available seats will reflect in green color and you can choose the GRE exam date from the listed options. Once selected, you’d be able to view the directions to the selected GRE exam center and the available seats and slots in the particular exam center.
