A standardized test, the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) measures Verbal, Mathematical and Analytical Writing skills. The test intends to aid Graduate Schools (of all fields other than business) assess the potential of the applicants for advanced study.

The examination is entirely a Computer-based Test, and no two students get an identical set of questions. The test is scored on a maximum of 340. The GRE Score alone cannot guarantee admission into a school – the test is only one of the major factors taken into consideration in the long process of an applicant getting admitted into a graduate school that he/she desires.
The GRE® test has three parts – Quantitative, Verbal and Analytical Writing Assessment. The following is the GRE test structure:
- An unidentified unscored section is included and will appear in any order after the Analytical Writing section. It is not counted as part of your score.
- An identified research section that is not scored may be included, and it is always at the end of the test.
- The US-based “Educational Testing Service” (ETS), which works under the direction of the Graduate Record Examination Board, develops and administers the GRE. ETS is responsible for setting questions, conducting the test and sending score report to each examinee. For detailed information about GRE®, please refer to the official website of GRE.
