ETS is pleased to share that we are close to introducing a secure solution that will allow students in some areas that have been affected by the coronavirus to take the GRE® General Test from home until test centers can reopen for regular testing. We expect to introduce this solution in selected locations outside Mainland China by the end of March. ETS and the relevant government agencies in Mainland China are working closely together so that we can provide a solution for Chinese test takers as soon as possible.
We understand the pressure that many graduate programs are under to ensure that international prospects submit their applications on time. This GRE® testing solution will help minimize the impact of testing delays on your admissions process. And every precaution is being made to ensure that it meets ETS's high standards for validity, reliability and security.
We appreciate your patience as we finalize this solution and will be in touch within the coming weeks as we can provide further details. Our thoughts continue to be with all those affected by the coronavirus during this time.
