WHAT IS THE GRE TEST (GRADUATE RECORD EXAMINATION)?
The GRE® General Test is the one admissions test that can be used to apply to a range of master’s, MBA, specialized master’s in business and doctoral programs at U. S universities and other countries. That means you only need to take one test to have a world of options within reach.
The GRE® test lasts for 3 hours and 45 mins and tests verbal, quantitative and analytical writing abilities. There are six sections with a 10-minute break following the third section. The verbal and quantitative reasoning score will be reported on a 130-170 score scale and the analytical writing is graded on a holistic scale of 6. The Analytical Writing section will always be first. Test scores are valid for 5 years. Different schools have different GRE score requirements. Your scores better your chances of getting admission into a particular U.S. university.
The GRE® can be attempted once every 21 days and only up to five times in one calendar year.
Registration for the GRE® requires a valid original passport.
Registration requires candidates to pay a $213 exam fee.
