-- GRE® Program offers new opportunities to test in November and December
PRINCETON, New Jersey, Nov. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In response to the growing number of individuals in Iran considering graduate or business school around the world, the GRE® Program has added three new computer-based test administrations to take place in November and December of 2013. These recently added test administrations will take place in Tehran, Iran.
Upcoming computer-based test dates include:
- Saturday, November 30, 2013
- Monday, December 16, 2013
- Sunday, December 22, 2013
"We are excited to provide test dates in Iran for the computer-based GRE® revised General Test," says Dawn Piacentino, Director of Communications and Services for the GRE Program at ETS. "This is great news for prospective test takers in Iran because the computer-based format is not only the most widely administered format of the test, it also has received great feedback from test takers around the world."
In addition to its test-taker friendly design, the computer-based GRE revised General Test allows for fast score reporting, so individuals in Iran who take the computer-based format will be able to view unofficial Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning scores at the test center immediately after completing the test. Official scores, including the Analytical Writing score, will be available to test takers through their My GRE® Account about 10–15 days after testing. Scores will be sent to designated score recipients in the same 10–15 day time frame. This means that test takers who opt to test in November and December can better meet upcoming admissions deadlines.
Prospective test takers of the computer-based GRE revised General Test are encouraged to use preparation materials specifically designed for this format of the test. The free POWERPREP® II software includes two full-length practice tests. These timed tests simulate the test-taking experience, including the test-taker friendly design features like the ability to skip questions and return to them within a timed section.

Prospective GRE test takers in Iran are advised to register early to get their preferred computer-based testing date and location. The GRE Program will continue to offer paper-based testing to those students who are already registered or have already prepared to take the paper-based version of the test. All testing locations can be found by accessing the GRE registration system at http://www.ets.org/gre/register.
