  • What is GRE?

    It is the most widely accepted graduate admissions test worldwide which measures Verbal, Mathematical and Analytical Writing skills. It is intended to help the graduate schools assess the potential of applicants for advanced study. Nearly 2300 universities in the US require GRE® scores from each applicant.

    Test-takers will get three separate scores, one for the Quantitative (the math), one for the Verbal, and one for the Analytic (the essays). Math and Verbal scores will range between 130 and 170 in one point increments. Analytic scores range between 0 and 6 in half point increments.

  • How is GRE scored?

    The Revised General Test is adaptive by section. Every test taker will see at least two math sections and two verbal sections. The difficulty level of the second section of each subject is determined by the test taker’s performance on the first section of each subject. If you get lots of questions right on the first section, you will get a harder second section, but access to higher scores. If you do poorly on the first section, you will get an easier second section and your scoring potential is capped at a lower range.Your GRE score remains valid for five years.

  • Who takes it?

    Prospective graduate and business school applicants from all around the world take the GRE revised General Test. Applicants come from varying educational and cultural backgrounds and the GRE revised General Test provides a common measure for comparing candidates’ qualifications.
