About the GRE Subject Tests

The GRE Subject Tests are achievement tests that measure your knowledge and skill level in a particular field of study. They’re intended for students who have an undergraduate major or extensive background in one of the following disciplines:

  • Mathematics
  • Physics
  • Psychology

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.


Upcoming Subject Test Changes

The GRE Program is excited to announce that the GRE Subject Tests in Mathematics, Physics and Psychology are moving to a computer-delivered format in September 2023. The tests will be offered more often in more locations, including in test centers worldwide and at home in most countries. In addition, the Physics and Psychology Tests will be shortened to 2 hours.

These changes are intended to bring greater accessibility, convenience and options to students around the world who want to stand out and show admissions committees they’re serious about and ready to attend competitive graduate programs.

Additionally, the Chemistry Test was discontinued after the April 2023 administration. Scores on the test will continue to be reportable for 5 years after the test date.
