The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) test is your gateway to graduate programs, business schools and fellowships.

GRE General Test scores are used to evaluate your readiness for graduate level work. It is usually required for admissions, scholarships or assistantships at a graduate school in most American universities.

The GRE General Test is accepted at more than 3,200 graduate and business schools as well as departments and divisions within these schools. GRE scores are used by admissions or fellowship panels to supplement undergraduate records, recommendation letters and other qualifications for graduate study.

The GRE General Test measures verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, critical thinking and analytical writing skills that are not related to any specific field of study.

  • Analytical Writing — Measures critical thinking and analytical writing skills, specifically the test taker's ability to articulate complex ideas clearly and effectively
  • Verbal Reasoning — Measures reading comprehension skills and verbal and analogical reasoning skills, focusing on the test taker's ability to analyze and evaluate written material
  • Quantitative Reasoning — Measures problem-solving ability, focusing on basic concepts of arithmetic, algebra, geometry and data analysis.
