Test Preparation


Does the GRE General Test measure knowledge in any specific disciplines?

The GRE General Test measures a student's verbal and quantitative reasoning, critical thinking and analytical writing skills – disciplines that are relevant to every field of study and important in graduate or business schools.

How is the GRE scored?

The first sections of the Verbal and Quantitative Reasoning parts range from the levels of 'Easy' to 'Difficult'. Each subsequent section is administered based on the student's overall performance in the preceding Verbal and Quantitative Reasoning section. A score of 130 - 170 is generated for the Verbal and Quantitative sections. Both scores are then added to give a total score on the scale of 260 - 340.

What kind of writing software does the AWA section employ?

Students will use a basic word processor developed by ETS. The basic word processor contains a number of functionalities: insert text, delete text, cut-and-paste and undo the previous action. Other tools such as a grammar checker or a spell checker and are not available in the ETS software. This makes essay writing fair in relation to handwritten essays of the students in the paper-based tests.

Is it advisable to re-take the GRE if the score received in the first attempt is low?

Students must make a concerted effort to prepare for the GRE the second time and retake the exam, if they feel that their GRE test scores do not reflect their actual capabilities.

For what duration is a GRE score valid?

A GRE score is valid for five years. While a student can retake the exam to improve upon scores, Institutions will have access to all your scores registered in the last five years. Hence, candidates are advised to prepare thoroughly before appearing for the exam.

When do I consider myself ready to take the GRE?
