Given the continued global impact on test centers from the coronavirus pandemic, ETS has announced that the GRE Subject Tests administrations scheduled for September 12 and October 17, 2020, have been cancelled.

Health concerns and local COVID-19 restrictions are preventing many institutions that have hosted paper-based GRE Subject Test administrations in the past from being able to provide a safe testing space this fall. The Subject Tests will not be offered online at this time. Those who have already registered to take a Subject Test are being informed of the cancellations and their test fees will be refunded.

Regarding these unfortunate cancellations, ETS said this in a statement:

“We understand that many score users will be disappointed at this news, just as we understand that some programs may need to make temporary changes to their admissions requirements. We regret having to take this step. However, we feel strongly that this decision is in the best interest of test takers and staff at our partner institutions.”

The next opportunity to take the GRE Subject Tests — assuming that public health conditions have improved — will be April 2021.

The GRE General Test

The GRE General Test continues to be available to students around the world to take either at home or at a test center. The at-home “online” GRE will remain available through the end of September, but be assured that ETS intends to offer the at home test for as long as COVID-19 is a concern so that students can opt to take the test from the safety of home. The at home test remains available even in areas where test centers have reopened, so students can choose which option works best for them.
