The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is a conducted by the ETS and is the most widely accepted standardized test for graduate level programs in the world. Thousands of universities accept the GRE score for admissions to programs across domains like engineering, law and business. Each year, approximately 6 lakh students take the test. This test is computer based, section wise adaptive and tests students on their verbal and quantitative abilities.

Who should take the GRE?

The GRE (Graduate Record Examination) is an online, computer based test conducted by ETS. This test features question types that closely reflect the type of thinking that students will need to do in postgraduate programs. For this reason, top universities across the world require students to take the GRE when applying for their postgraduate programs. Even though there are several universities do not need students to take the GRE when applying for their programs; cracking the GRE will help students secure scholarships in such universities.

How important is a good GRE score?

Frankly, this depends on the university that a student applies too. Top universities (like Carnegie Mellon, MIT, Stanford etc.) generally admit students who have a score above 320. Some universities weigh the quant part of the GRE score more than the verbal part, while others might use the GRE score as a tie-breaker. However, if students want the flexibility to apply to top schools and get scholarships, they should aim to get more than 320.
