The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) General Test is a generic, standardized test administered by the non-profit Educational Testing Service (ETS). This exam, conducted by qualified testing centers, is unrelated to any particular field of study and aims to measure verbal and quantitative reasoning, critical thinking, and analytical writing skills. There is a computer delivered test offered year-round at Prometric test centers and on specific dates outside of that network. In certain areas, paper-based test is the only option and is offered up to three times a year. The base fee is $205. Miscellaneous fees at $25 to $60 each can further increase the cost – every service is fee based which includes Additional Score Reports ($27 per recipient), Late Registration ($25), Score reviews ($50 to $60 depending on the test area), etc. On the upside, their website offers free study resources and materials.
