On May 29, QS is holding an exclusive webinar to answer your questions about the new at-home version of the GRE. Sign up for it here.

The COVID-19 pandemic has caused widespread disruption to peoples' lives around the world. With test centers closed, university and business school applicants hoping to sit the GRE exam have been unable to do so in the traditional fashion.

Instead, the test can now be taken from home for the first time ever.

On May 29 at 3pm BST, join us as we answer all of the questions we've been receiving about this new way of sitting the GRE, including:

  • How does the at-home GRE test work for students?
  • Can I take the at-home GRE multiple times?
  • How will universities I apply to regard an at-home GRE test score compared to the traditional version of the exam?
  • Will the at-home GRE test continue to be an option for applicants after the COVID-19 pandemic is over?
  • What advice can you offer prospective students during the COVID-19 pandemic?

We will be joined for the webinar by Matthew Bashi-Kadlubowski, Associate Director for Client Relations within the Global Education Division at Educational Testing Service, providing you with an opportunity to hear directly from the creators of the GRE and ask any further questions you may have. A full bio for Mr Bashi-Kadlubowski can be found below.

Matthew Bashi-Kadlubowski is Associate Director for Client Relations within the Global Education division at Educational Testing Service in Princeton, New Jersey. He is responsible for outreach and communication for the GRE® Program within the United States and Canada. Prior to joining ETS in 2010, Matthew worked in Enrollment Management for over 20 years with the MBA, graduate, undergraduate, transfer, and international markets and is the former Director of Admissions at Rider University (Princeton Campus) and the Pennsylvania Institute of Technology.
