Graduate Record Examination
Registering for the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is a snap. The GRE test is offered in both computer and paper-based formats, depending on where it is taken. In the United States, Canada, and many other countries, the computer-based GRE examination is offered throughout the year at scores of test centers.
Appointments to take the GRE exams in one of these test centers are issued on a first-come, first-served basis. It should be noted that individuals are only allowed to take the GRE test once a month, and no more than five times within a year. This rule is in effect even in situations where previous GRE test scores have been canceled. The GRE test can be taken in its paper-based format in many of the countries where the computer-based format is not available. The paper-based GRE test will be offered on October 28, 2006; February 10, 2007; and June 9, 2007. Not every testing center will offer the examination on each of these dates, however, so it is important to confirm the testing date at the Educational Testing service website.
Whether you are taking the GRE examination in its computer-based or paper-based format, there are a few general rules regarding rescheduling or canceling an appointment. It is necessary to reschedule or cancel the test at least three full days before the appointment, or else the test fee will be forfeited. If the exam is canceled at least three full days before the examination date, a refund will be issued. If you desire to reschedule your examination, a small rescheduling fee may be assessed.
