GRE, like the other popular international standardized tests, doesn’t have any fixed dates for taking the exam in a year. Students are given the complete liberty to choose their preferred dates and test centers for the GRE exam all around the year. The GRE exam is regularly conducted at the Prometric test centers throughout the year in India. However, only limited test dates are given at the GRE exam centers that are outside the Prometric Network. In this case, the students are required to check the availability of the GRE test date before registration.
ETS website lists the available GRE test dates and exam centers. It is not necessary for students to create an ETS account to search for the availability of test dates, except the user profile with ETS for online registration.
