and i learnt about the concept of taking the exam a no of times to improve your score. on checking the ETS website i found that it is not entirely correct. some universities look for the very first gre score and some even take the avg, so in that case even if you get a good score the 2nd time, the net effect goes down.., while some consider the best score. being in india gre is costly.. total general +subject gre =Rs 11000 or so..
so i need to rethink about taking gre a no of times..
can anyone of you throw some light on this issue, can you name some of the universities where they consider the best score? and where not?

I took the GRE physics once and general twice and I was accepted to all the top schools in my field. It doesn't count as much as you think, unless you really bomb it.
