What is the GRE?
The Graduate Record Exam, or GRE, is the most commonly required admission test for graduate school. Much like the SAT and ACT, the GRE exam is a broad assessment of your critical thinking, analytical writing, verbal reasoning, and quantitative reasoning skills. In addition to the general GRE test, some graduate schools may require additional GRE Subject Tests, which are specific to eight fields of study. These include:
-Biochemistry, cell, and molecular biology
-Literature in English
Who takes the GRE?
Those who are looking to pursue a master’s, MBA, specialized master’s in business, J.D./MBA degree, or doctoral degree take the GRE General Test. Basically, if you are applying to graduate school, you will likely find yourself taking the GRE, as it is accepted by thousands of schools worldwide.
What is on the GRE?
The GRE is divided into three main sections: Analytical Writing, Verbal Reasoning, and Quantitative Reasoning. Unscored questions may be included as well, but you will not know which questions are scored and which are unscored. Unscored questions are used to test future exam questions.
How to take the GRE?
The GRE General Test is administered by over 1,000 locations around the world. The computer-delivered test is available throughout the year. In areas where computer-delivered testing is not available, test takers can use the paper version up to three times a year in October, November, and February.
You can register for the GRE online and take the exam at an ETS testing center.
