The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is a standardized test that is required to be taken by students seeking admission to graduate schools. The exam has been developed to evaluate the verbal, analytical and mathematical skills of the candidates. GRE is a computer- based test and has a user-friendly design. Individuals applying to graduate schools in order to pursue a Masters of Science(MS) or MBA are required to take the exam.
GRE also has subject tests, apart from the basic GRE exam. These subject tests help to make your application stand out from the rest by highlighting your subject knowledge and skill-level of a particular subject. Each subject test is intended for those students who have a bachelor’s degree in the particular disciplines. The subject tests being offered currently are Biochemistry, Biology, Chemistry, Literature, Mathematics, Physics, and Psychology.
Owned and administered by Educational Testing Service (ETS), the GRE aims to measure verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, analytical writing, and critical thinking skills that have been acquired over a long period of learning.
The GRE is available at over 1000 test centres in more than 160 countries. It covers three major sections- Analytical Writing, Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning. The content of the GRE consists of certain specific algebra, geometry, arithmetic, and vocabulary.
The importance of a GRE score can range from being a mere admission formality to an important selection factor. Yet it is highly useful in clearing admissions to masters and doctoral degree programs in various foreign universities
