What is the Graduate Record Examinations or GRE?

The GRE General Test and the GRE Subject Tests are taken by individuals applying to graduate programs, such as:

  • Natural science,
  • Social sciences,
  • Business,
  • Humanities,
  • Arts,
  • Education.

The GRE General Test measures verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, critical thinking and analytical writing skills. These skills have been developed over a long period of time and are not related to a specific field of study, but are important for all. The test closely aligns with the types of skills that are required for success in today’s demanding graduate and business school programs.

The GRE Subject Tests measure achievement in specific subject areas and assume undergraduate majors or extensive background in those disciplines. These tests are available in the following disciplines:

  • Biology,
  • Chemistry,
  • Literature in English,
  • Mathematics,
  • Physics,
  • Psychology.
