Unlike other entrance exams in India, the online GRE Test happens around the year at more than 1,000 Prometric test centre in more than 160 countries. The GRE exam slots are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis. It is up to the applicant to decide the slot and date of the GRE 2019 exam. But with this flexibility of exam slot and date arises another problem.
During the peak season (generally around August to December) it is hard to get an appointment at the desired center according to one's comfort. When selecting a GRE test date, students should make sure the scores will be reached in time for the application deadlines of their desired universities.
GRE-ETS takes approximately 10–15 days after the test date to report the scores to the recipient universities. This makes the planning of the exam date a vital part in the preparation of your GRE exam.
One can opt to take the next GRE Test attempt only after 21 days of the previous exam date. Students can take the ETS-GRE exam up to five times a year with a gap of 21 days.
The offline or paper-based GRE General Test and the GRE Subject Tests are available up to three times per year in October, November and February at limited test centres in selected cities. Know more about offline GRE 2019 Exam Centres.
ETS-GRE gives students the liberty to reschedule or cancel the GRE exam registration in case of any inconvenience.
