How To Book A Slot

  • Getting a GRE appointment certainly isn’t rocket science, but if you are a first time test taker, it might seem like a tediously long process. Nothing to worry about, though. You can avoid all the hassle if you know what you are doing.Booking a GRE slot is simple and easy, and there are quite a few things you need to keep in mind before you do register, so you can get the job done faster.
  • Here are a few rules you need to follow when creating an account: 1.The name you use during account registration must be the SAME name used when you register for the GRE appointment. Meaning, the name must exactly match, with the details on your identification documents (your passport, for example). If the names don’t match, you may not be allowed to sit for the test. So, be extra cautious while registering your name. Register with your official/real name and include all First, Middle, and Last names. Watch out for spelling mistakes. Again, these names must be exactly as they appear on your ID. If you don’t have a last name, you need to enter your first name again as your last name.
  • Now, go to the ETS website and create a ‘My GRE Account’ for yourself. It’s a one-time requirement, and with this account you can set your test appointment, view scores after your exam, reschedule or cancel your appointment, send out score reports to universities, register for the free GRE Search Service, etc. However, if you already have an account for the TOEFL exam, you can use the same username and password to create a My GRE Account.
  • Next, you need to decide when you want to take the GRE, depending on how many days you would need to prepare for the test, and when you need to report your scores to your target universities. Also, another important factor to consider, is the test time. Decide if you want to sit for the exam in the morning, during the afternoon, or in the evening. The test dates may vary based on timings as well.
  • You will now be asked to choose a test provider, and there will be a few options to choose from. Usually, the most favored test provider is Prometric, since it is not only the official worldwide test provider for ETS, but also since it follows ETS’ rules and regulations strictly. However, some test takers decide to choose one of the other test providers.
  • Now, you will be asked to choose the country and then the city where you would like to appear for the test. You will be provided with the test centers that are the closest to the city you have chosen. Remember that only big cities and metros have Prometric centers, and test takers from smaller cities should either choose other providers, or should opt to take the test at a nearby city with a Prometric center. Some big cities have multiple Prometric test centers, in which case, you can choose the nearest center.
  • Now, after you choose the test center, you will be shown an online registration system with updated GRE test center information. Remember that not all test centers are open on all dates, and also the fact that the test date you have decided may or may not be available. If you find that the dates you want are already filled, check after a few days. Sometimes, other test takers postpone/cancel their appointments, and slots get reopened.
  • Confirm your registration. Complete the payment process and make sure to take a printed form of the receipt. In case you cannot print, save the file as a PDF and keep it handy. This completes your GRE Appointment.
  • If for some reason you cannot register online, you need to follow an alternative test appointment process either through phone, fax, or mail, depending upon where you live.
