My Experience with ETS GRE At-Home Exam

I have recently completed my GRE Exam on the 13th of April. As you might all know, ETS has recently given us the option of attempting the exam online for most of the countries except Mainland China and Iran. But for people in India, this means we could virtually attend the exam at our convenience. I had originally scheduled my exam for 24th of March (on-site exam). On 22nd March the test center sends me a mail regarding the GRE exam being postponed due to the outbreak of COVID-19, at a later day after April 17th. My friend and I have decided to contact ETS for some guidance regarding this snafu. After talking to customer care, we had them reschedule our exam for 17th April at the same test center. After a week or so, on 2nd April, we visited the ETS portal to take a practice test. We saw the alert that At-Home GRE was finally available in India and we decided to reschedule it for an earlier date than 17th April. We had talked to the customer care again to reschedule the test at home. They redirected us to ProctorU with our login details sent to our registered mail ID where we had to select the date and time of the exam. We have to register for the exam within 24-hours of receiving the email. Be aware of your inbox. Read more

What is Rolling Admission? (2019)

What is rolling admission? In essence, rolling admissions are different from your regular admissions when it comes to one component: THE DEADLINE! Regular admissions have a hard deadline, which means that your application is evaluated only once all the applications are received, after the stipulated deadline. Rolling admissions, on the other hand, are evaluated on a rolling basis, which means an applicant’s profile is assessed until the slots for a particular course are filled in completely. Read more
