Testing Locations

The GRE General Test is a computer-delivered test that is offered both at test centers and at home.

Test center testing

The GRE General Test is administered in a secure testing environment at more than 1,000 ETS-authorized test centers in 160+ countries.

  • In most regions of the world, the test is available on a continuous basis throughout the year.
  • In Mainland China; Hong Kong, China; Taiwan, China; and Korea, the test is available up to three times per month.

At home testing

The GRE General Test at home is offered 24 hours a day, 7 days a week around the world.

The at home test is:

  • taken on the test taker's own computer at home
  • the same valid and reliable GRE General Test you know and trust
  • identical in content, format and on-screen experience to the GRE General Test taken at a test center
  • administered with best-in-class security measures that use both human proctors and AI technology

Students can prepare for the test using the same prep materials. Only the delivery method is different.
