GRE (Graduate Record Examination)
The Graduate Record Examination gauges the
students’ performance at the undergraduate level and is of two
types: the GRE (General Test) and the GRE (Subject Test).
GRE (General Test): The GRE General Test measures verbal reasoning,
quantitative reasoning, critical thinking and analytical writing
skills for students seeking a graduate program in the U.S. The
General Test measures the skills that are not related to any
specific field of study.
The General Test is Internet-based and can be taken as frequently
as once a month and up to 5 times in a year. GRE scores are valid
for five years.
The test has 3 sections (verbal, quantitative and analytical
writing) and takes about 4 hours to complete. The highest score
that can be received on the GRE General Test is 1600.
GRE (Subject Tests): The GRE Subject Test measures undergraduate
achievement in eight different disciplines. Each subject test is
intended for students who have majored in a particular subject or
have an extensive background in that specific area.
The GRE Subject Tests can be given up to three times a year at 6
different testing centers in India.
