All About GRE Exam

Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is a standardized test taken by prospective graduate and business school applicants from all around the world who are interested in pursuing a master’s, MBA, specialized master’s in business or doctoral degree in the US, Canada and many other countries. GRE preparation coaching is the first step towards study abroad. The GRE exam is owned and administered by Educational Testing Services (ETS).

The GRE General Test is administered on a computer at over 1,000 test locations in over 160 countries. The exam is available on a continual basis throughout the year in most parts of the world. The test is available up to three times a month in Mainland China, Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, China, and Korea.

Thousands of graduate schools, including business and law, as well as departments and divisions within these schools, accept the GRE General Test.

Every year, over 500,000 people from 160 countries take the GRE General Test, which is administered at over 1,000 ETS test centres. Candidates’ GRE scores are accepted at thousands of graduate institutions worldwide for master’s and doctorate degrees.

More than 1,200 business schools worldwide accept GRE scores, including top-ranked MBA programs according to The Financial Times, U.S. News & World Report, and Bloomberg Businessweek, as well as a few US law schools.

GRE exam is a computer-based section adaptive test with 6 sections that measure GRE Verbal reasoning, GRE Quantitative reasoning and GRE Analytical writing skills. GRE exam has a totally different scoring pattern compared to our school/college tests. GRE exam 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 easy section. To get a high GRE score, one should get into a harder section and answer the harder questions correctly.

Given the facts, GRE prep must be a difficult nut to crack for individuals who are still in college. Students in their final semester of college are always overwhelmed with projects, placements, and other obligations. So the best seasons are the Spring semester (between January and May) or the Fall semester (between September and December) ( between late August to late December). When we initially begin GRE preparation, the first thought that comes to mind is, “Can I prepare for the GRE in one month?” No GRE preparation is complete without complete dedication and devotion.
