GRE, an acronym for Graduate Record Examination is a general test required for admission in most Graduate schools in the world, mainly is the USA. It is a standardized test and isn’t subject specific, but those wanting to study physical and applied sciences are also required to take this test. This test was started in 1949 and has been administered and developed by Educational Testing Service (ETS). There are two types of GRE tests: Paper-based standardized test and Computer-based standardized test, but the Computer-based test is hipper nowadays. GRE tests’ script is in English.

As claimed by ETS, GRE General Test is now the world’s most prominent graduate admissions test and is accepted by over 500 business schools around the world for their MBA programs counting top universities and institutions such as Harvard, INSEAD, Wharton, and MIT. The number of business schools that accept the GRE General Test for admission in their MBA programs has quadrupled over the last four years. GRE is similar to the GMAT test and the points of one can be converted to the other. The marks obtained in any of these tests are valid up to 5 years. The GRE test is conducted in about 1,000 test centers in over 160 countries. The fee for this test is US$ 205.

The GRE test has four sections (but main three sections):

  1. Verbal Section, that analyzes the ability of a test-taker to evaluate a written text, create something from the information obtained and also identify relationships between words and concepts.
  2. Quantitative Section or Math Section, which measures the skill of a test-taker to solve problems using general concepts of algebra, arithmetic, geometry and data analysis.
  3. Analytical Writing Section, which measures a test taker's critical thinking and analytical writing skills, mainly the ability to express and support difficult ideas clearly, efficiently and vividly. There are two tasks in this section, one issue task, and one argument task, both tasks are essays.
  4. Experimental Section, which can either be verbal or quantitative. It is not the main section but in most conditions, this section of the test must also be given.

The duration of this test is approximately 3 hours and 45 minutes with a 1-minute break between sections and a 10-minute break after the third section. There are two sections within the Verbal section lasting 30 minutes each with a maximum score of 170 in 1 point increments.
