International physics program requirements

  • Thread starter cuallito
  • Start date
I remember reading (it might have been here) that non-US physics programs don't use the Physics GRE for admission criteria. Is this true?

Are there other test(s) that are used? What do international programs tend to look at?
It is mainly a US-specific test. Most European students for example won't have GRE score at all. At least here in Germany, universities will look for the last grades you got in the previous program.
