We recommend that students plan to take the GRE for the first time six months before their application deadlines. Keep in mind that you can retake the GRE once every 21 days and up to five times in a 12-month period. By planning to take your first GRE six months in advance of your application deadlines, you will give yourself plenty of time to prepare, to take and retake the GRE, and to dedicate time to completing the other elements of your applications.
Most students benefit from retaking the GRE at least once. The GRE offers a ScoreSelect option that allows you to choose which scores to send to schools. On your test day, you can send either your most recent test score or all of your test scores from the past five years. After your test day, for a fee, you can send either your most recent test score, all of your test scores, or any (individual or combination) of your test scores from the past five years.
