I have been hoping to take the PGRE on either 13October or 10November 2012 in the UK. I have just learned however that there is only one test venue for these dates in England - Kent! and there are no seats available. (I have also checked Scotland and the one venue there - Glasgow is also full).
Can some1 please advise if I have any chance of taking the PGRE in the UK for these dates or will I have to go abroad.... Which may not be economically viable for me
(The next nearest venues are in France).
All feedback appreciated.. .
The October seats at Kent filled up in less than 3 weeks since they opened registrations, I was forced to register for the November exam. For a while both dates said "no seats available" then for a brief period switched to "limited seats available". A few may have canceled or ETS might've tried to squeeze in a few more students. I'd keep my eyes peeled and check daily, or even call ETS and ask if there are any seats left.
If not then I guess taking it abroad is the only option.
In 2011 or 2010 there was a venue in London for the PGRE (some international school I think). Perhaps they'll add an additional testing site before October if the demand is high enough (should be, all seats were taken in early August) but I wouldn't wait too long before registering for the test in France or wherever. If London gets a venue you could just cancel the exam in France and take it in London (although you'll lose 50% of the registration cost, but it's probably cheaper than flying to and staying a night in France
Really I don't know what ETS was smoking when they decided that one GRE subject testing site in England was a good idea.
