The Graduate Record Examination or GRE is a standardized test that is an admissions requirement for many graduate schools primarily in the United States. GRE test scores are used by admissions or fellowship panels to supplement undergraduate records and other qualifications for graduate study. The scores provide common measures for comparing the qualifications of applicants and aid in evaluating grades and recommendations.
This exam is primarily focused on testing abstract thinking skills in the areas of math, vocabulary, and analytical writing. The GRE is a computer-based exam that consists of the following sections:
Verbal Reasoning— The skills measured include the test taker's ability to
• analyze and evaluate written material and synthesize information obtained from it
• analyze relationships among component parts of sentences
• recognize relationships between words and concepts.
Quantitative Reasoning — The skills measured include the ability to
