GRE Overview

GRE - Graduate Record Examinations

Much like the SAT and ACT, the GRE exam is a broad assessment exam of your critical thinking, analytical writing, verbal reasoning, and quantitative reasoning skills. All the skills are developed over the course of many years. Some universities or colleges may also require you to take one or more GRE Subject Tests. GRE stands for Graduate Record Examinations. It is a standardized aptitude exam with a pre-defined curriculum. It is one of the most extensively established admissions tests for graduate and business school programs. This exam is also used for admissions decisions for MBA, specialized master's in business and many doctoral programs.

Basically GRE is broadly divided into two categories. The GRE General Test evaluates verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, critical thinking and analytical writing skills. These are the types of skills that are essential for bright future in today's demanding graduate and business school programs at all the international levels. The other is GRE Subject Test that pact with the acquaintance of a particular field of study guiding students stands out from other applicants by emphasizing their knowledge and skill level in an explicit area.
