For millions of students like you, a graduate or business degree can give you a big advantage in your future career. An important step toward achieving that goal — and the path to thousands of graduate and business programs all over the world — is to take the GRE® General Test.

 

Now we're making that step even better for you. Starting this August, the GRE® revised General Test will replace the current GRE General Test, giving you the advantage of a better test experience — and new types of questions that help show your readiness for graduate-level work.

 

Here's What You Can Expect from the GRE revised
General Test

  • A new test-taker friendly design for the computer-based test that lets you edit or change your answers, skip questions and more, all within a section — giving you the freedom to use more of your own test-taking strategies. Another new feature: an on-screen calculator.* Learn more about the new test-taker friendly design.
  • New types of questions in the Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning sections, many featuring real-life scenarios that reflect the kind of thinking you'll do in today's demanding graduate and business school programs. Learn more about the new types of questions.
  • Special savings of 50% when you take the GRE revised General Test between August 1 and September 30, 2011. The 50% discount means big savings for you — and another big advantage to taking the GRE revised General Test. Learn more about saving 50% on your test fee.
  • Important score reporting information you need to know: If you take the GRE revised General Test during our special discount period of August – September 2011, your scores will be sent by mid-November. However, if you need your scores before November, take the current test before August. See the detailed score reporting schedule.

Something else to keep in mind when you receive your scores: The GRE revised General Test features a new score scale that can make it easier for schools to compare your GRE scores with the scores of other candidates. Learn more about the new score scale.

Choosing Between the Current Test and the Revised Test

To help you decide which of the two tests to take, start by selecting which schools you're most interested in, then find out when they need your scores. Different schools have different admissions deadlines, so knowing when your prospective schools need your scores is an important part of making the decision between the GRE General Test and the GRE revised General Test.

If you need scores before November, start planning now. You will need to take the current test. You will want to register early to ensure you get a seat for your preferred date and location. If you take the current test in a split-test administration location early planning is especially important.

If you don't need scores until after November, taking the GRE revised General Test is a smart move. With these new changes in place, the revised test will give you a better test experience — and offer an even better way to show schools that you're ready for graduate-level work.

Another Reason to Take the GRE revised General Test:
You'll Save 50% When You Test In August or September 2011.

Here's an opportunity you don't want to miss: save 50% on the GRE revised General Test when you test between August 1 and September 30, 2011.

Test takers who save 50% on their test fee will have the same test experience and test advantages as those who take the GRE revised General Test after the special discount period is over; the only difference is the savings!

If you want to take advantage of this limited-time 50% discount, we recommend that you register as early as you can, since seats will fill up quickly during this special discount period. Registration for the GRE revised General Test is open now. Please note that if you test during this special discount period of August 1 – September 30, 2011, your GRE scores will be sent by mid-November. That means if you need your scores before then, don't wait — make sure you take the current test before August.
