Questions and Answers

When is the GRE given?
The test is given year-round. You can take the test during normal business hours, in the first three weeks of each month. Weekends are also available in many locations. You can register as late as the day before the test, but spaces do fill up. So, it’s best to register a couple of weeks before you plan to take the test.
How important is the GRE and how is it used?
It is crucial! Although graduate schools may consider other factors, the vast majority of admission decisions are based on only two criteria: your GRE score and your GPA.
How many times should I take the GRE?
Most people are better off preparing thoroughly for the test, taking it one time and getting their top score. You can take the test at most five times a year, but some graduate schools will average your scores. You should call the schools to which you are applying to find out their policy. Then plan your strategy accordingly.
Can I cancel my score?
Yes. You can cancel your score immediately after the test but before you see your score. You can take the GRE only once a month.
Where can I get the registration forms?
Most colleges and universities have the forms. You can also get them directly from ETS by writing to:
