Hello,

I am interested in applying to graduate schools in the US. I understand that I need to take the GRE exam, but I don't know of any test centres in the UK which will allow me to take it. It seems difficult to find this information online. I live in Cardiff so somewhere not too far away would be good, but I would be willing to go anywhere in the UK to take the exam.

Thanks!

I understand the importance of taking standardized tests like the GRE for graduate school admissions. It is understandable that you are looking for test centers in the UK to take the exam. I would suggest starting by checking the official ETS (Educational Testing Service) website, as they are the organization that administers the GRE. They have a search tool that allows you to find test centers in specific locations, including the UK. Additionally, you can reach out to graduate schools in the US that you are interested in and inquire about their preferred test centers in the UK. They may have specific recommendations or partnerships with certain test centers. I wish you the best of luck in your graduate school journey.
