Graduate Research Examination, also known as GRE, is taken by millions of students each year to take admission in the graduate school. Since most countries accept GRE scores for admission, it opens the portal for international students to apply abroad for their higher studies.
GRE is primarily taken for two types of master’s programs, Master in Arts (MA) and Master in Science (MS). However, despite having mainly two graduate programs, it also has two categories.
The first type of GRE exam is GRE general, taken by all the students wishing to apply for MS or MA. This section contains three sections.
There is a three-way with which you can register yourself for the GRE: online, mail registration, and telephonic registration. Let’s discuss how you can enroll yourself through each of them.
Online: In order to take GRE general or GRE subject test through online medium, you first have to register yourself in the Educational Testing Service website https://www.ets.org/gre. During the registration, you will be asked to fill in basic information about yourself. Once you are done with the form, you need to select the date you want to take the GRE and make the payment. This form of registration is the most widely used registration method worldwide.
Mail Registration: In case you do not want to go with the online registration, you can also download the form online after the registration on the web. After successfully completing the form and choosing relevant options, you must have to send the form to Prometric 2nd floor, DLF Infinity Tower–A Sector 25, Phase II, DLF City, Gurgaon, Haryana – 122002 India. While posting the form, you have to ensure that it is reaching the destination at least three weeks before the choice of examination. After your form gets submitted rest of the information will be given to you over your registered email.
Telephonic Registration: Another way to register is through the telephone. You can call 91-124-4147700, which is the number of the Regional Registration Centre responsible for registering GRE. Once you have provided all the relevant information, a confirmation number, reporting time, and other details will be given to you. However, you must ensure that you have registered for the exam at least two days before the examination.
NOTE: The GRE general exam has many dates’ availability options since it is taken by most of the students. However, there is not that flexibility with the GRE subject, and you have to appear for the exam on the given date.
