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 340.

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 centres in India.
