What is the GRE?
The Graduate Records Examination (GRE) is a 4-hour computerized exam required for admission to graduate school. The maximum score on the GRE, which is a combination of the Quantitative and Verbal sections, is 340.
How is the GRE Scored?
The GRE has three sections – a Verbal Section, a Quantitative Section and an Analytical Writing Section. The Quantitative and Verbal Sections are 170 points each making the highest possible score on the GRE a 340. The Analytical Writing Section is scored on an independent scale where a student gets a score from 0 to 6, with 6 being the highest. The Analytical Writing Score does not affect the overall score out of 340 points.
How does the MST (Multi-Stage Test) work?
The multi-stage format presents questions according to each individual’s ability level. These questions are chosen from a pool of test questions categorized by content and difficulty. The MST GRE will adapt on the section level rather than on the question level. In other words, the computer will select the next section (not question) based on how you did on the previous section. You will be able to skip a question or go back to change it later by using a new mark and review feature. A key part in preparing for the GRE is to understand the MST format and how your score is determined.
What is the format of the GRE?
There are three sections to the GRE: the Analytical Writing Section, the Quantitative Section, and the Verbal Section. The Analytical Writing Section consists of two writing tasks: Argument Task (30 minutes allotted), and Issue Task (30 minutes allotted). The Quantitative Section contains approximately 40 questions (2 sections of 30 minutes each). The Verbal portion contains 2 sections containing approximately 20 questions (35 minutes allotted per section). An unidentified Verbal or Quantitative pretest 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 will always be at the end of the test.
When should I take the GRE?
The GRE is administered year-round in testing centers all across the country. The only restriction on taking the test is that you may not take the GRE more than one time in any calendar month, even if you have taken the test and canceled your scores. When you should take the GRE depends on the application deadline of the school to which you are applying to and if you think you may need to take it more than once. For students taking the GRE in August or September 2011, scores will not be available until November. Consult the admissions offices of your prospective schools about their schedule.

How many times can I take the GRE?
You may take the GRE no more than once in any calendar month. If you take the GRE multiple times, some graduate schools may average your scores. You should call the schools to which you are applying to find out their policy and then plan your strategy accordingly. If you repeat the test, your scores from the latest test date and the two most recent test administrations in the last five years will be reported to the institutions you designate as recipients.
What is a good score on the GRE?
The average student scores around a 150 on both the GRE Verbal and Quantitative sections and a 4 on the Analytical Writing Section. A good score might be considered anything above 155 on the Verbal section and above 160 on the Quantitative section. However, what constitutes a good score will vary by school and by program. You will likely need a higher score to be admitted to a prestigious graduate program. Also consider that programs in mathematics and sciences will place more emphasis on Quantitative scores, while Verbal section scores are more important for programs in the humanities. To determine your specific goal, research the admissions requirements for the school and program you are interested in. This table represents information compiled from the websites of individual programs. It is subject to change and should be verified with the school.
How important is the GRE for admissions?
In addition to the GRE, admission officers generally look at your transcript, prior work experience, recommendations, and your essays in your application packet. While the GRE is not the only criterion used for admissions, it can have a big impact on whether or not you are accepted to the graduate school of your choice. While admission requirements vary widely among schools and among programs within a school, most graduate programs require scores for the GRE General Test or a GRE Subject Test or both.
What factors are most important in choosing a graduate program?
The choice of school depends on financial factors, overall academic rank, specialty degree areas, locality, and more. Generally speaking, it is best to get into the highest ranked school for your targeted specialty area that you can; otherwise, pick your nearest best option that leverages your personal situation.
What is the difference between part-time and full-time programs?
Costs – Part-time programs generally allow you to work more during the school year, whereas full-time students are not given the same opportunities because their schedule does not allow them to work more than 20 hours a week. To offset this, institutions reserve a larger percent of their grant and scholarship funds for full-time students.
Academic Experience – Part-time students may have a difficult time juggling school, work, and personal life. The academic performance of students tends to suffer if they are unable to juggle different aspects of their lives. Strong academic performance opens many doors to opportunities, so part-time students may miss out on these opportunities that can aid in building their resume. Also, part-time students may have limited selection for evening courses, making it much more difficult to take required courses, thereby postponing the completion of their degree program.
Opportunities After Graduation – Part-time students typically have a full-time job, which means that they cannot take part in other programs, such as internships. These opportunities are a great way of finding a company that you may want to potentially work for after the completion of your program. Although part-time students may not get these opportunities, they do have opportunities to apply the knowledge they learn in the classroom to their work. Full-time students would have to wait until they get in to the workplace before getting the chance to apply their knowledge first-hand.
What do I need to bring on test day?
There are just three things you need to bring with you on test day: 1) an International Passport with your name, recent photo and signature, 2) your Registration Confirmation Ticket, including your registration number, and 3) your writing material namely pen or pencil. No mobile devices or other personal items are allowed in the testing room.
The GRE test is available at more than 1000 test centers in more than 160 countries. The GRE Test measures verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, critical thinking and analytical writing skills, skills that have been developed over a long period of time and are not related to a specific field of study, but are important for all. The test closely aligns with the types of skills that are required for success in today’s demanding graduate and business school programs.
In most regions of the world, the test is administered throughout the year on computer at test centers. The computer-delivered test may also be offered on specific dates at additional testing locations outside of the Prometric test center network.
In areas of the world where the computer-delivered test is not availables, a paper-based format of the test is administers up to three times a year in October, November and February.
The GRE Computer Based Test is required by graduate and professional schools, as it is considered a crucial component for admission to a graduate program. Applicants for graduate school courses are usually required to submit the GRE test results together with other undergraduate records as part of the application/admission process. The test simply examines your analytical and critical reasoning skills. These are skills that have been established to contribute to successful achievement in a graduate program. The examination does not test prior knowledge of data or facts specific to any field of study.
Prospective graduate and business school applicants from all around the world who are interested in pursuing a master’s, MBA, specialized masters in business or doctoral degree take the GRE Test. Applicants come from varying educational and cultural backgrounds and the GRE Test provides schools with a common measure for comparing candidates’ qualifications.
GRE scores are used by admissions or fellowship panels to supplement your undergraduate record, recommendation letters and other qualifications for graduate-level study. Depending on the choice of school, the importance of a GRE score can vary from an important selection factor to just an admission formality.
To increase one’s chances of gaining admission into a top school, GRE is very important and especially for individuals with low Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA).
The Educational Resource Agency (TERA) provides its students with world class teaching experience, has the techniques to tutor prospective students at its training centers, giving them the confidence and assurance they need to earn great scores. Lectures are comprehensive as students are able to learn and understand section contents and are at the same time taught the best way to convey techniques that will improve their scores.
