The Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) General Test is a standardized test that graduate schools use to evaluate candidates. Over one thousand graduate programs around the world require applicants to submit GRE scores in order to be considered for admission. Also, the GRE is often used to help determine whether a student is awarded graduate fellowships or graduate research or teaching positions. The GRE General Test features question types that closely reflect the kind of thinking you’ll do in graduate or business school.
Verbal Reasoning — Measures your ability to analyze and evaluate written material and synthesize information obtained from it, analyze relationships among component parts of sentences and recognize relationships among words and concepts.
Quantitative Reasoning —Measures problem-solving ability using basic concepts of arithmetic, algebra, geometry and data analysis.
Analytical Writing — Measures critical thinking and analytical writing skills, specifically your ability to articulate and support complex ideas clearly and effectively.The entire testing procedure lasts about 3 hours 45 minutes. One minute breaks are offered after each section and a 10-minute break after the third section.
What Are the Subject Tests?
The GRE® Subject Tests are achievement tests that measure your knowledge of a particular field of study. Show what you know about a specific subject and graduate schools will take notice. The Subject Tests can help you stand out from other applicants by emphasizing your knowledge and skill level in a specific area.
Each Subject Test is intended for students who have an undergraduate major or extensive background in one of these six disciplines:
Biology, Chemistry, Literature in English, Mathematics, Physics, Psychology
