GRE (Graduate Record Examinations)

Speak to GRE Topper


The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is a standardized test which is required to be taken by students who are seeking admission to graduate schools. The exam has been developed to evaluate the verbal, analytical and mathematical skills of the candidates. Most universities in the US, while inviting applications from prospective students, ask for GRE scores. Conducted by ETS (Educational Testing Service), it is an online computer-based exam.

In the graduate school admissions process, the level of emphasis that is placed upon GRE scores varies widely between schools and between departments within schools. The importance of a GRE score can range from being a mere admission formality to an important selection factor.

There is no specific eligibility criteria for the GRE exam. Anyone who wants to pursue graduation can register for this exam, irrespective of their age or  regardless of their field of specialization. The only thing you need to keep in mind is the fact that you will be required to produce your original passport as proof of identity at the exam centre, so make sure that you have a valid passport before you register for the GRE exam.
