    Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology
    Computer Science
    Literature in English

    • Hello Ahmad,

      First of all you must take the GRE general test since it is mandatory for FB scholarships. Then contact your chosen program in the U.S. directly and ask them what subject test do you want to take. They ll tell you which one of these 8 is mandatory for you.

      Apologies for the belated response – lately have been engrossed in the FB flood :-)

  11. AOA Talha,

    Me again. I’ve read your afore mentioned thread. however, I’d still need some clarification in possible. So in order to apply for FB, one needs to take GRE General, wait for the process and once chosen then take GRE again? Lets say I get selected for my preferred program MBA marketing and get FB, do I still need to take GRE again? IF so whould would the subject be?

    Additionally, once i get accepted for FB scholraship and take a specialized GRE test again but the scores dont fulfill the requirements of my school, then what?

    • You don’t need to take the GRE general again. However if your scores are low and get FB but don’t get admission in a uni then you will have to take the GRE again. Moreover subject tests have to be taken once FB makes you an offer. Subject test is only required by certain programs in the U.S.

  12. Hey i am getting problem registering via VISA credit card since last 4 days. I have tried multiple visa cards ( of different banks) but i get the error:

    Your selected payment method has failed.

    Please make sure all information was entered accurately including the card Security Code, if applicable, or try another payment method.

    A retry may result in additional temporary holds on your account in the amount of the test fee.

    Should a hold occur, it will not result in an actual charge to your account.

    Please check with your card issuer for the specific reason authorization and/or the Card Security Code check failed.
