GRE Exam Dates 2022: Like all other international standardized tests, candidates have the liberty of appearing for GRE round the year. The GRE exam is offered year-round at Prometric test centres in India. At GRE test centres outside of the Prometric network, there might be limited test dates available, so you will have to check the date availability before registering. 

In response to the ongoing pandemic COVID-19, ETS - the conducting body of the Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) has decided to launch the GRE at home for locations where the computer-based format of the GRE Test was earlier available for the convenience of students wanting to study abroad. Candidates would be required to have the necessary system requirements and a conducive environment to appear for the GRE test. Currently, the GRE is available in both computer and paper delivered mode. However, the GRE Paper Delivered Test is only available for locations that do not have internet access. In India, the GRE test is only available in the computer-delivered format.

GRE Dates 2022: When should you take the GRE?

A lot of times, candidates are confused about when to take the GRE test. Experts suggest that the right time to appear for your first GRE attempt could be 45 days prior to your university admission deadline. This way, candidates would have enough time to appear for a second GRE General test attempt, if the GRE results don't yield as planned.  

GRE Exam Dates 2022 in India

Candidates would be glad to know that the GRE Computer Based format of the test happens every month. The GRE Computer Delivered Test happens every month in India on all days excluding weekends and public/general designated holidays. Candidates are advised to book their GRE Exam Slot well in advance to book their desired choice of the test centre and available date. The GRE at Home test times are available around the clock, seven days a week, and appointments may be available as early as 24 hours after you register.
