About GRE

GRE General Test-

Gradutae Reward Exam(GRE), is a test written by Prospective Graduate students, applying for Master's courses in multiple Universities across USA, Canada, and other European countries. 

Why do you need GRE scores?

 If you're looking to study Graduate courses (Masters or MBA)  in top Universities across the world, submitting GRE scores is a mandatory requirement. Universities take GRE Scores to be a common indicator of a student's Analytical, Logical, and Verbal Reasoning Skills. This test, conducted by a non-profit educational assessment and research organization called ETS, was designed to reflect a student's critcal thinking abilities. 

What is the Test Pattern ?

GRE Tests a student's Verbal Reasoning (English), Quantitavie Reasoning(Mathematics), and Analytical Writing(Essay writing) abilities

Verbal Reasoning- This section tests a student's English text reading, understanding, and analysing skills - A student has to not only read and understand english text, but also analyze the given information to solve text completion and passage based questions. 

Quantitative Reasoning- As the name suggests, this section tests a student's foundation in Mathematics. "Quant" typically deals with basic Mathematical concepts introduced in 9th-12th grade, such as Number systems, Algebra, Simple & Compound interest, Probability & Statistics, Angles and 2D Geometry etc..  and does not delve into complex concepts.

Analytical Writing-  This section is designed to measure how good a student is in Critically analysing a given topic and  coveying his/her views about the topic in writing.
