All About GRE


Every year, over half a million people from over 160 countries take the GRE General Test at Educational Testing Service’s (ETS) 1,000s of test centers. The GRE (Graduate Record Examination) is a standardised test taken by prospective graduate and business school applicants from all over the world who want to pursue a master’s or doctoral degree in the United States, Canada, and many other countries.

The GRE is the first step towards study abroad. GRE is a test that is adaptive by section. The first section of Math/Verbal has a mix of easy, medium and hard questions. Based on the number of right answers in the first section, a student enters into a second section which is a hard or a medium, or an easy section. To get a high score, one should get into a harder section and answer the harder questions correctly. It is a 3 hour and 45 minutes test consisting of multiple-choice questions. The GRE is scored on a scale of 130 to 170 for verbal and quantitative reasoning, and 0 to 6 for analytical writing.

How should I prepare for the GRE exam?

Here are some tips to help you prepare for the GRE exam:

1. Know the rules of the game – Get thorough with the structure, format, and scoring of the test.
