GRE: The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is a standardised test that is an admissions requirement for most Graduate Schools in the United States. Created and Conducted my Educational Testing Centre (ETS). The test consists of two types: GRE General Test and GRE subject tests. General Test: General Test measures your verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, critical thinking and analytical writing skills-universal requirement for graduate degrees with courses in math, science, or research methodology". Subject Test: Subject Test is to highlight your strengths in a specific subject area, such as Biology, Physics, Math, or English. You may be asked to take a GRE Subject Test that's closely related to your major. GRE is a multiple-choice multi-stage test. It has been designed in a way so as to calculate the student's intellectual and logical abilities, adapting to performance by selecting questions based on previous answers. The test allows its takers to skip questions within a section, go back and change answers and have the flexibility to choose which questions within a section they want to answer first. The GRE question types are designed to closely reflect the kind of thinking that students will be expected to do in graduate or business school and are based upon the following skills: Verbal reasoning: The computer-based verbal sections assess reading comprehension, critical reasoning, and vocabulary usage .It is a tricky section. It needs the skills of logic and reasoning in order to attempt it successfully. One should be able to deduce the conclusion from the given information. The skill of finding out relationships that exist between the given words or concepts is a must for this section. Do not assume anything, you are required to read the passage, the questions and understand fully before answering them. Quantitative section: Most of the students taking the GRE develop cold feet at the mention of this section. The reason behind this is lack of confidence in the knowledge of the fundamentals of math. This section can be tackled easily if one is aware of the exact format of the questions that will be asked. The key to succeeding in this section is loads and loads of practice in solving problems specific to the math section. Analytical writing section: Analytical Writing - This section measures analytical writing skills and critical thinking. It specifically measure's a student's ability to articulate and support ideas that are complex in nature both clearly and effectively. The Analytical Writing section will always be first and will come before all other test sections. The Verbal Reasoning,Quantitative Reasoning and Experimental Section(the latter of which is not scored but which can be either Verbal or Quantitative) may appear in any order.An identified Research Section that is not scored may also be included in the test but will always appear at the end.
