Statement on Oct. 23, 2010 GRE General Test in China:

ETS is working to resolve an issue with the October 23, 2010 administration of the GRE® General Test in China in which a previously-used edition of the test was mistakenly administered. In an effort to protect the validity of GRE scores, ETS has made the difficult decision to cancel all scores resulting from the Oct. 23, 2010 GRE administration in China. 

ETS is providing those GRE test takers affected by the cancellation the option to either:  (a) take a make-up test on Nov. 20, 2010, (b) transfer to the scheduled June 11, 2011 GRE administration, or (c) receive a full refund of their GRE  test fee for the October 23, 2010 administration. 

ETS intends to accelerate the score reporting time frame for the November 20, 2010 make-up so that test scores may be reported to institutions by Dec. 10, 2010. ETS will send communications to affected GRE test takers so that they are informed of these details by Saturday Oct. 30, 2010. ETS regrets that this isolated incident occurred and is taking steps to ensure against a similar occurrence in the future.
