Test Preparation: Prospective test takers can access the new version 2.1 of the POWERPREP® II software, which is both Mac®- and PC-compatible, to help with their test preparation. The free software includes two full-length practice tests and is as close to the actual test-taking experience as one can get. Campus-based educators and advisors can also download the free software to make it accessible to students. Two new GRE® Success Starter videos are also now available. These short videos are a great way for test takers to get started. Learn more about these and the full array of official test prep for prospective test takers at www.ets.org/gre/prepare.
Paperless Score Reporting: GRE test-taker score reports are now paperless! Effective July 2013, test takers have access to view their official Examinee Score Report online. About 10 to 15 days after their computer-based test (and about six weeks after their paper-based test), test takers are notified via email that their scores are ready online. They simply access their My GRE® Account to view their scores. Test takers can also use the new on-demand, print-friendly functionality to print an official Examinee Score Report for free. ETS will continue to send official Institution Reports, directly from ETS, in a secure fashion to institutions in their preferred format.
Retaking the Test Policy: Individuals can now retake the computer-based GRE® revised General Test as frequently as once every 21 days, up to five times within any continuous rolling 12-month period. Individuals can take the paper-based GRE revised General Test and GRE Subject Tests as often as they are offered. While the total number of testing opportunities has not changed, the shorter 21-day window allows individuals to retake the test more quickly to better meet approaching application deadlines.
