In light of the COVID-19 coronavirus outbreak, the ETS (Educational Testing Service) is offering students the opportunity to take the GRE test at home for a limited time. This comes after testing centers around the globe closed their doors, leaving many applicants wondering how they will be able to fulfill their MBA applications.
As of today, (Monday, March 23at 13:00 UTC), the GRE test will be offered at home to those located in the United States, Canada, Colombia, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Hong Kong (China) and Macau (China). Candidates must have a suitable computer and testing environment. Requirements for both of these can be checked on the ETS website. UPDATE: since April 3 the at-home GRE version is available worldwide.
The test will have the exact same content, format and on-screen experience as the GRE test taken in a testing facility. Each test will be monitored by a human proctor online via ProctorU®. The price will be the same, as will the score delivery timing.
In addition, it will also be possible to take the TOEFL iBT test at home until test centers can reopen. TOEFL testing is scheduled to begin on March 26.
Registration for the GRE new format is open now.
