I have already booked dates for GRE exam on March 16th, but I still I didn’t get my passport. I had already applied n my police verification also was completed. Now can I write the exam or I have to reschedule it.
GRE Without Passport
ETS has specified certain documents and requirements that can be used for Identification. For International students Passport is mandatory document. One cannot appear for GRE Exam without passport (International Students).
Time and Time again we have said, don’t book GRE Dates without Passport in your hand. If you decided to register for GRE without you passport, you will run into following issues
- Delayed Passport issuance
- Name in passport is different from name in GRE registration.
Keep an eye out for the passport. Find out when is the last date to reschedule your exam. If you don’t receive your passport by that deadline, then reschedule your GRE test.
Other potential problem
Now, instead of preparing for GRE, all your energy is focused on passport. There will be that constant nagging feeling if you will receive your passport in time. If your GRE Test preparation is getting affected then consider rescheduling GRE test.
Chances of finding GRE test dates might be a challenge too, since many test takers are rushing to take GRE before new GRE test format is offered.
