Share this Story

(June 7, 2011)--Beginning August 2011, Educational Testing Services (ETS) will replace the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) General Test with the GRE Revised General Test. The new test is expected to be a user-friendly and more flexible exam more focused on the skills needed to succeed in graduate and business school.

Graduate school applicants will see changes to the test’s content, design and scoring.

This year, prospective graduate students should be aware of these key dates:

  • If applicants are applying to schools that require GRE scores before November, they must take the current GRE General Test before August. Applicants should register now for the current test to get their preferred test date and test location.
  • If applicants do not need GRE scores until after November, they should take the GRE Revised General Test when it begins in August. Applicants taking the revised test will be able to experience the new friendlier design and will save 50 percent on the test fee if they take the revised test between Aug. 1 and Sept. 30, 2011. Learn more.
  • For applicants not sure when their targeted schools require GRE scores, contact the schools for information.

Registration for the GRE Revised General Test is open now. The first administration of the GRE Revised General Test is Aug. 1. Score reports for tests taken in August and September will be provided by mid-November. Score reports for tests taken in October and November will be provided according to the ETS detailed score reporting schedule. Normal score reporting (10-15 days after the test date) will resume in December.

To learn more about the upcoming changes, visit the GRE website.

Sandhu, the Lutcher Brown Distinguished Chair in Cyber Security in the College of Sciences, and Ram Krishnan, assistant professor of electrical engineering in the UTSA College of Engineering, are funded by a $500,000 grant from the National Science Foundation to improve cloud security.
