What is GRE®?

A standardized test, the Graduate Record Examination measures Verbal, Mathematical and Analytical Writing skills. The test intends to aid Graduate Schools (of all fields other than business) assess the potential of the applicants for advanced study. Most universities in the US, while inviting applications from prospective students, ask for GRE®® scores.

The examination is entirely a Computer-based Test, and no two students get an identical set of questions. The test is scored on a maximum of 340. The GRE® Score alone cannot guarantee admission into a school - the test is only one of the major factors taken into consideration in the long process of an applicant getting admitted into a graduate school that he/she desires.

The GRE® test has three parts - Quantitative, Verbal and Analytical Writing Assessment. The following is the GRE® test structure:

 

 

** An unidentified unscored section may be included and may appear in any order after the Analytical Writing section. It is not counted as part of your score.

*** An identified research section that is not scored may be included, and it is always at the end of the test.

The US-based "Educational Testing Service" (ETS), which works under the direction of the Graduate Record Examination Board, develops and administers the GRE®. ETS is responsible for setting questions, conducting the test and sending score reports to each examinee. For detailed information about GRE®, please refer to the official website of GRE®www.gre.org

It is one of the various criteria that the admission council looks at. However, a good GRE® score does improve your chances of getting admission and financial aid.

What is the cost/registration fee for the GRE®?

The registration fee for taking GRE® is USD 195. After administering the test and before getting the final scores, the test takers are asked to submit the names of 4 universities that they would like to send their scores to. This facility is part of the fee that is charged for the test.

The universities only accept official scores sent directly by ETS. Scores to four colleges can be sent free of cost while taking the exam. Subsequently, for each score report sent to a college, you would have to pay $25.

Almost all the universities take the best score.



If the application deadline of University X is July 15, by when should I take the GRE®?
