How to Apply for GRE

ID Requirements

For Indians taking the test either within the country or outside the country, the only acceptable form of ID is a valid Passport. Though Passport details are not required for GRE registration, it is good to have the passport in hand while registering for GRE. The Name and Date of Birth entered should match with your Passport. Any mismatch in First Name, Surname or Date of Birth would lead to disqualification for the test on the test day.


Test Centres and Dates Availability

GRE test centres are available in major cities. You can select the test centre, date, and time according to your convenience subject to availability. Check for the availability here:
