GRE

The full form of GRE is Graduate Record Examinations. It is a standardized test conducted by ETS (Educational Testing Services). ETS GRE scores are accepted by most of the top graduate level schools for master’s degree programs . It’s gone through a lot of changes over the years. In its newest avatar, it is called the GRE revised General Test.

The GRE General Test features question types that closely reflect the kind of thinking you’ll do in graduate or business school.

  • Verbal Reasoning — Measures your ability to analyze and evaluate written material and synthesize information obtained from it, analyze relationships among component parts of sentences and recognize relationships among words and concepts.
  • Quantitative Reasoning — Measures problem-solving ability using basic concepts of arithmetic, algebra, geometry and data analysis.
  • Analytical Writing — Measures critical thinking and analytical writing skills, specifically your ability to articulate and support complex ideas clearly and effectively.

Prospective graduate and business school applicants from all around the world who are interested in pursuing a master’s, MBA, specialized masters in business or doctoral degree take the GRE General Test.

GRE scores are used by admissions or fellowship panels to supplement your undergraduate records, recommendation letters and other qualifications for graduate-level study.

The GRE General Test is accepted at thousands of graduate and business schools as well as departments and divisions within these schools.
