Main Question or Discussion Point

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,
Reshma

Looks like you may have to wait until August.

Check our Web site in August for the upcoming year's Subject Test registration information.

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.
