What are the GRE Eligibility Requirements for 2022?

There are no stated eligibility requirements for the GRE. The GRE is open to anyone, regardless of age or educational background. However, those applying for master's programs must take the GRE. 

Before enrolling for the GRE, applicants must have an original valid  passport, as they will be asked to show their original passport as proof of identity at the exam center. Applicants should be aware that, beginning July 1, 2021, they will be allowed to register for the GRE using their Aadhar Card as part of their identity evidence.

1 GRE Age Requirements

The GRE does not have a minimum age restriction. However, the institute or university to which you're applying is likely to have age requirements.

Therefore, before completing your GRE registration, double-check your selected university's graduate admissions standards.

2 GRE's Educational Requirements

In terms of qualifications, there are no precise requirements for registering for the GRE. Applicants must, however, have a graduate degree from a recognized university in any field.

3 Eligibility for University-Based

It should be mentioned that candidates for MBA, MS, and law programs at the world's finest universities take the GRE. Even though there are no age or educational criteria for the GRE, studies have observed that the mean age of students pursuing their graduate degree is 33. Apart from an acceptable GRE score, these programs may need students to meet several criteria, such as:

  • Undergraduate course grades
  • Scores on language tests such as the TOEFL and IELTS
  • The standard of the project
  • Experience in the workplace
  • Recommendation letter
  • Letter of Intent

4 GRE Work Experience Eligibility

Most applicants are worried about the required work experience; however, it is not a mandatory GRE eligibility criterion. GRE preparation is best to start while a student is studying for their undergraduate program or have completed their undergraduate studies.

In the event of any complications, a proper explanation must be submitted to the concerned authorities.

 Documents needed at the GRE Test Centre

  • You must have an ID card with you when taking the GRE test, as there isn't a specific admission card.
  • Make sure that the first and the last name on your ID card (ideally a valid passport) matches the name on your GRE application form.
  • Your test ID proof must be an authentic document with your recent photograph and signature.
  • The ID verification method might include photo and biometric identification, thumb printing or fingerprinting, sign comparisons, or video recording.
