Beginning July 1, 2003, the option to handwrite essay responses on the analytical writing section of the GRE General Test will no longer be available at computer-based test (CBT) centers. All GRE examinees at CBT centers worldwide will be required to word process their essay responses on the GRE Analytical Writing section.
A separate paper-based Analytical Writing Measure is available at the December 13, 2003 Subject Test administration. The fee for this test is $55 in the U.S., U.S. Territories (includes American Samoa, Guam, and U.S. Virgin Islands only), and Puerto Rico, and $70 in all other locations. (Note that you cannot take the Analytical Writing Measure and a Subject Test on the same test date.) Call or fax ETS no later than 6 weeks prior to the registration deadline for registration instructions.
