Taking the GRE on time

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone!

How long does it take schools to receive GRE scores? I am looking at testing on October 26th, but want to be certain all of my schools would have ample time to receive scores.

Thanks in advance!

I'm not 100% sure how long it takes but I took mine the beginning of November last year and there were no problems!

I was told that official scores are available 10 days after your test date.. I’d like to assume that scores are given to the institutions by then or at least by the time your application is submitted.

I've been told that November 30 is the absolute last day you should take it to be able to hit a January 1st deadline, so you should be fine!

I had taken it for a second time end of November and had no issue getting my scores in on time.

Did you improve your second time taking it?

I retook mine a 3rd time on dec. 12 and sent my scores immediately after taking it and they arrived by Jan 1st.

That's good news! I wasn't sure if there was a delay because of the holiday season.

I don't think it is a hard and fast rule. I've just always been told to give about 6-8 weeks for test scores to be sent over just to be safe!
