GRE Test Centres: Conducted by ETS, the Graduate Record Examination or GRE is one of the most popular standardized tests for candidates looking to pursue post-graduate courses in universities abroad. While the GRE General Test evaluates candidates in areas of analyzing abilities, critical thinking, and quantitative reasoning skills along with verbal skills. The GRE Subject test includes testing candidates on subjects including Chemistry, Mathematics, Physics and Psychology. Candidates should note that English Literature and Biology have been removed from the list of GRE subjects tests.  

The GRE General Test is available in both the computer-delivered method and the paper-delivered methods. The GRE paper delivered method is only available in areas with limited access to the Internet. In India, the GRE test is only administrated in a computer-based format. Due to the pandemic, ETS has also launched the GRE at Home for candidates looking to take the GRE test from the safety of their homes. We will be talking more about this in detail a little later. In this article, we will be talking about GRE General Test Centres, GRE Subject Test Centres, GRE Test Centers Rules and the process involving Changing GRE Test Centers.
