How to Register for the GRE

Booking a GRE Test Date:

The GRE test is taken on the computer, so there are no set test dates – you can take the test throughout the year and you simply book an appointment at a computerised testing centre local to you.

Registration and Payment:

You should register and pay test fees for the GRE online at, which is the website of the Educational Testing Service (ETS), administrators of the GRE.

The cost to take the GRE at testing locations outside the US is US$195. ETS accepts most major credit cards for payment of the test fee.

Retaking the GRE:

If you need to retake the GRE, you should follow the same procedure as above.

Please note that you can only take the GRE General Test once per calendar month, and no more than 5 times within any 12-month period.
