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 Masters, MBA, Business Masters or Doctoral degrees in the US, Canada and many other countries. GRE preparation is the first step towards the study abroad journey. 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. 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 centers. Candidates’ GRE scores are accepted at thousands of graduate institutions worldwide for Masters 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.
The 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. The GRE exam has a unique testing and scoring style different from all the Indian tests; it is adaptive by section.


What Does Section Adaptive Nature of GRE mean?

The first section of Math/Verbal has a mix of easy, medium and hard questions. If the student performs well in the first section, then the second section will be harder thereby increasing the score scaling. However, if the student performs poorly in the first section, the second section will be easier thereby decreasing the score scaling. In the former scenario, the student gets a higher score and in the latter, the student gets a comparatively lower score.

To get a high GRE score, it is essential that the students perform well in the first section.
