GRE Physics Registration Info

  1. May 24, 2008 #1
    Hello Everyone!

    I am planning to appear for the GRE-Physics test this year. As most of you all know it is offered 3 times a year viz. October, November & April. However, in India (where I study) the subject test is offered only in the month of November.

    The 2008-09 test dates are out, but when I tried registering online at this link on ETS site: https://web1.gre.org:446/gre/gremain_srv.htm, I get the message "Subject Registration is closed for this testing year" on the link. I assume it is for the 2007-08 testing year.

    I am sure many here might be taking the test this year. Can someone tell me the tentative date or period when the online registration process starts? I don't want to miss out on the deadline since I have only one testing date.:frown: Please do post any GRE-Physics related info over here or PM me.

    Warm Regards,

    Looks like you may have to wait until August.

    That's a little strange, although the site says online registration is open 24 hours a day.

    Why is this strange? You wouldn't expect to be able to register for a test 100 years from now online, even if it were open 24 hours a day. This is just a matter of degree - they are apparently taking November reservations starting in August.

    Well, it is an issue for international students especially because they have registration deadlines upto 2 weeks earlier than US citizens and the availability of a testing center is subject to change at any time of the year. So it is indeed necessary to register at the earliest date available during a testing year (not 100 years!).

    FYI, it seems the registeration for the Physics GRE is open on the ETS website. November 8th seems to be the date.

    Yes, I noticed it last week! :smile:
