What is the GRE?
GRE is an important step towards your application for graduate school and also for business school.
The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is a computer based (section-wise adaptive test), administered by the Educational Testing Service (ETS), available round the year, intended to assess analytical, writing, quantitative, verbal, and reading skills for use in admission to graduate programs. The test provides business schools with means to compare the preparedness of applicants for a wide variety of programs like economics, engineering, liberal arts, MS programs, MBA and also for PhD programs.
Institutes normally focus on the most relevant part of the GRE score – either Verbal or Quant. Usually, math-heavy fields, such as physics, value Quant scores the most, whereas reading-heavy fields, such as English literature, value Verbal scores the most.
