What is GRE?
The GRE Test (Graduate Record Exam) is the standardised test used to get admissions in various graduate schools or business graduate schools in various English speaking countries, especially the United States. More than 1 lakh graduate school applicants from approximately 160 countries take the GRE General Test at 700 test centers. Aspirants interested in pursuing a master’s degree, specialised master’s course, MS, MBA, MEM or doctoral degree can sit for the GRE Test. In addition to the GRE revised general test, there are seven GRE subjects tests that evaluate candidates’ knowledge in their respective field. GRE test is conducted by the Educational Trust Service (ETS).
For the quantitative and verbal reasoning assessments of the GRE revised General test, the scores range from 130 to 170 points. For the analytic writing section, scores range from 0.0 to 6.0, in half-point increments. There are two verbal and two math sections on the GRE revised General test. The first of both sections is not computer adaptive, but the difficulty of questions that you’ll be given for the second section is dependent on how well you did on the first section. The essay section of the GRE is composed on the computer, but both writing tasks are graded by trained readers.
