Test Center Procedures and Regulations

The test centers for GRE, in Pakistan, are in

  • Islamabad
  • Lahore
  • Karachi

These three centers accomodate all the test takers from whole of Pakistan. Most of the test takers come from other cities, so you must read the instructions carefully.

The following procedures and regulations apply during the entire test session, which begins at sign-in, ends at sign-out and includes breaks.

  • Dress so that you can adapt to any room temperature.
  • Test centers do not have large waiting areas. Friends or relatives who accompany you to the test center will not be permitted to wait in the test center or be in contact with you while you are taking the test. Except for ETS - authorized observers, visitors are not permitted in the testing room while testing is in progress.
  • ID verification at the test center may include thumb printing, photographing, videotaping or some other form of electronic ID confirmation. If you refuse to participate, you will not be permitted to test and you will forfeit your registration and test fees. This is in addition to the requirement that you must present acceptable and valid identification.
  • Food, drinks and tobacco are not allowed in the testing room.
  • Do not bring cell phones, smartphones (e.g., BlackBerry┬«, iPhone┬«), PDAs and other electronic or photographic devices into the test center. If you do, you will be dismissed from the test, your test fees will be forfeited and your scores will be canceled even if dismissal is not enforced on the day of the test.
  • Personal items other than identification documents are not allowed in the testing room.
  • If you requested and received an authorization voucher from ETS, you must take it with you to the test center.
  • You will be required to write (not print) and sign a confidentiality statement at the test center. If you do not complete and sign the statement, you cannot test and your test fees will not be refunded.
  • ETS reserves the right to ensure the security of test content by using electronic detection scanning devices (e.g., hand-held metal detectors/wands). Failure to comply may result in dismissal from the test and forfeiture of your test fees.
  • You may be required to sign the test center log before and after the test session and any time you leave or enter the testing room. You may be asked to remove your watch and to store it during the test administration.
  • The test administrator will provide you with scratch paper that may be replenished after you have used all pages of the scratch paper initially given to you. You may not take your own scratch paper to the test, nor may you remove scratch paper from the testing room at any time. Scratch paper is provided to assist test takers in working out problems and for appropriate note taking during timed sections of the test. Scratch paper should NOT be used during breaks or before the test. At the conclusion of the test, you will be required to return all scratch paper to the test administrator.
  • If at any time during the test you have a problem with your computer, or for any reason need the administrator, raise your hand. Testing premises are subject to videotaping.
  • The GRE revised General Test includes an optional 10-minute break after the third section and one-minute breaks between the remaining sections of the test. These break times cannot be exceeded. You are required to remain in the test center building or in the immediate area.
  • If you need to leave your seat at any time other than the break, raise your hand; timing of the section will not stop.
