You’ve finally gone through the motions and have decided to book your GRE exam date, but what do you encounter? A lot of fields to fill in. First and foremost, please do not be in a hurry to fill up the form. Changing what you have entered is a long process that might require you to call the ETS team, and send emails, and other ID proofs. Stay calm!
Booking an exam slot is a pretty simple process. You just have to be clear about where, when and what time slot you want to take the exam at? The ETS has also set a few guidelines (rules and regulations) that you must be aware of.
Let us take a look at a few things to note before finalizing and clicking that submit button:
Basic guidelines and information
The ETS, as said before, policies related to:
- Rescheduling: the fees and the deadlines for changing your dates etc.
GRE test date and location
When you are booking your date, be very clear about the exact date that you would like to take the exam. Of course, you might not get that particular date, if the slots are completely taken, but you at least have an idea of searching around that date. Also, be very sure about your location. Read a little bit about the test centres, and their accessibility.
For both the GRE and the TOEFL, you will be required to create an ETS account that will enable you to log in and register yourself. Remember that you would require an original and a valid passport to take the GRE examination. The name that you enter into the fields while registering needs to match the First, Second and Last names of the passport. Even a small spelling error might lead to you being debarred from the exam.
Complete the registration
Carefully check whether you have filled every field that is required. After filling up the fields correctly, you can use a credit or a debit card and complete your payment. ETS also accepts payments via Paypal.
Hope that helps the GRE- test takers. Wishing you the very best!
