GRE

Overview

Prospective graduate and business school applicants take the GRE General Test as it is the most recognized graduate admissions test in the world. The GRE is generally given in a computer format (except for foreign students) and scheduling is very flexible.

The GRE revised General Test (as of August 2011) measures your verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, critical thinking and analytical writing skills. It does not measure skills related to any specific studies. The three testing sections are Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning and Analytical Writing.

We have over 15 years of GRE teaching experience and we have helped countless students gain admission to some of the world’s most prestigious graduate programs. Recently, many MBA programs have started to offer students the opportunity to submit either GRE or GMAT scores. We can discuss which testing option is optimal for you!
