The Shorter GRE: Your Questions Answered

As the result of a renewed and focused effort at ETS to ensure that learners and educators are at the center of all we do, we are making some big changes to the GRE General Test and want you to be the first to know. The GRE test will continue to measure the same skills and maintain the strong quality and security you expect, with valid and reliable scores for confident decision making.

Importantly, the score scales will remain the same so you can easily compare performance across individuals who test before and after September 2023.

Beginning September 22, 2023, testing time will be reduced by half, from nearly four hours to just under two, and the official score turnaround time will reduce from 10–15 days to 8–10 days.

Combined, these changes are intended to provide test takers with a better experience that values their time and reduces anxiety and fatigue, ultimately helping them to complete and submit their applications more quickly.

Join our GRE Program team as we give an overview of the changes and available resources and answer your questions.
