Q. Are GRE Subject Tests given in computer-based format?
A. No. GRE Subject Tests are given in the paper-based format only. The subjects are listed in the GRE Information and Registration Bulletin.
Q. If I want to register for a Subject Test, how do I go about?
A. If you register for a Subject Test, you will be sent a booklet that describes the test in more detail. The free descriptive booklets are available in downloadable form on the GRE Web site or may be requested by writing to ETS.
Q. Can one take GRE more than once ?
A. Yes. But one should be aware that one’s score from each test will appear on the score report. So, even when one takes the test for "practice," the results can affect one’s record.
Q. Should I guess?
A. Yes. Unlike the Subjects Tests, there is no penalty for guessing on the General Tests. But, remember to eliminate one or more of the choices before taking a wild guess.
Q. How and when are GRE scores reported ?
A. The total number of correct answers in the General test is converted to a score on a scale of 200 to 800. Even if a student doesn’t answer any question, he or she would still have a score of 200. With one or two unanswered or incorrectly answered questions, a student could still have score of 800. Your score report will be sent by mail approximately six weeks after the test date.
Q. Is it possible to cancel my score question?
A. Yes. You may cancel your score on the day of test by telling the test-center supervisor. You may even write to ETS. If you are writing your cancellation requests must reach ETS within four days of test date. Then it will be noted in your GRE score report that you have canceled a score. You score report will include three different scores: a verbal score, a quantitative or math score, and an analytical score. It will also include a percentile ranking for each section.
Q. In the GRE, is extra credit given for a difficult question?
A. All questions are given equal weight. No extra credit is given for difficult questions. So there is no reason to go on working on a particular question after you have given it your best shot.
