GRE

GRE (Graduate Record Examination) is a standardized test for admissions into graduate school in the US. It is mandatory for most students aspiring for a Masters Degree (except Business, Law and Medicine) and PhD courses in several universities in the US. The GRE revised General Test is accepted at thousands of graduate and business schools as well as departments and divisions within these schools.

The GRE revised General Test is available at about 700 test centers in more than 160 countries. In most regions of the world, the computer-based test is available on a continuous basis throughout the year. In August 2011, the GRE revised General Test replaced the GRE® General Test to align the test to demands of current graduate and business schools. GRE today is increasingly accepted by several business schools too.

A thorough GRE test preparation is thus a must for applicants desiring to study at an internationally recognized school abroad.

The GRE revised General Test is given year-round at computer-based test centers in most locations around the world. Appointments are scheduled on a first-come, first-served basis.
