Know Everything About GRE

Pursuing higher studies from the topmost educational institutes in the world is a dream nurtured by many young students and even professionals from across the globe. After all, the superior quality of higher education offered by some of the world's prominent universities makes them the primary choice of most students from India and other countries who are aspiring to study abroad.

Heard of GRE?

So, if you want to experience what it means to study in some of the greatest universities of the 21st century, then you have to prove yourself worthy of that honor. GRE (Graduate Record Examinations) is a standardized computer-based test, owned and administered by ETS (Educational Testing Service) for admission to graduate programs in America, Canada and many other countries. It opens the door to a wide variety of graduate schools, including prominent international business schools. However, the emphasis isn't laid on GRE scores alone. GRE scores along with your overall academic record and supporting documents determine your selection to a particular graduate school or institute of your choice.

More about GRE

With nearly 1000 test centers in more than 160 countries, GRE is one of the largest assessment tests that examine your learning skills. 

GRE is of two types:

  • GRE General Test 

  • GRE Subject Test


The first type includes an assessment based on three sections: verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, and analytical writing while the second type focuses on the specialized course that has been opted for. Most universities conduct admission based on the General GRE. Being a multi-staged test, the assessment is designed in such a way that your performance in the first section of Verbal and Quantitative Reasoning will determine the level of difficulty posed by the next set of Verbal and Quantitative questions. GRE scores reflect the number of correct answers within the stipulated time. Through a process called "equating", raw scores are converted into a scaled score which indicates equivalent performance irrespective of the difficulty level.
