About the GRE® Subject Tests

What Are the Subject Tests?

The GRE® Subject Tests are achievement tests that measure your knowledge of a particular field of study.

Show what you know about a specific subject and graduate schools will take notice. The Subject Tests can help you stand out from other applicants by emphasizing your knowledge and skill level in a specific area.

Each Subject Test is intended for students who have an undergraduate major or extensive background in one of these six disciplines:

Note: The GRE Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology Test was discontinued in December 2016. Scores will continue to be reportable per GRE score reporting policy.

Who Takes Them?

Prospective graduate school applicants take the Subject Tests. Applicants come from varying educational and cultural backgrounds and the GRE Subject Tests provide a common measure for comparing candidates' qualifications.

GRE Subject Test scores are used by admissions or fellowship panels to supplement your undergraduate records, recommendation letters and other qualifications for graduate-level study. Some Subject Tests yield subscores that can indicate the strengths and weaknesses in an individual test taker's preparation and may also be useful for guidance and placement purposes.

Where and When Do People Take Them?

The Subject Tests are given at paper-delivered test centers worldwide three times a year, in:

  • September
  • October
  • April

Who Accepts Them?

GRE Subject Test scores are accepted by thousands of graduate schools, including individual departments or divisions within these schools. Although the scores may not be a requirement for admission to a particular program, admissions committees are likely to consider the scores if they are submitted. It's best to contact the specific graduate program you're interested in and inquire about their requirements.
