The Graduate Record Examination General Test is a systematised test that must be taken to be eligible for applications in graduate schools. The GRE test result is accepted by many universities in the US and Canada for admission purposes. The test can be taken on any working day and as many numbers of times as desired. You get the opportunity to send your best score to the university of your choice.
This General Test has been designed to test your credibility to join a graduate college in an English speaking country.
These three are the main academic requirements that you will come across on a daily basis while studying abroad. It is important to not only study to score but also to increase your skills as a student.
Brilliant Overseas believes in adapting to new test patterns and update the available test modules to meet the requirements of our students. Our passion to teach budding minds has cultivated into a culture that nourishes every mind that walks into our classroom.
We realise the importance of pursuing an MS or PhD program from a foreign university and have always strived to closely understand the syllabus and exam pattern so that our students can benefit. We conduct elaborate classes focusing on enhancing a student’s potential to the maximum. With doubt sessions every Saturday, a student can clear their doubts and seek guidance.
We understand that it is not easy to grasp the whole syllabus all at once and there might be areas where extra study hours would be required. Our commitment towards every student is unfazed regardless of the difficulty levels. With special classes focusing on problem areas, we aim at clearing even the slightest doubt a student can potentially have.
To build confidence, we conduct mock tests every week to familiarise a student with the exam pattern and how the exam proceeds. Later, we discuss solutions and explain shortcut methods to save time.
GRE is very different from IELTS. While IELTS is taken to ensure your English skills can help you survive in a foreign land, GRE is taken by candidates who aspire to pursue an MS or Ph.D. program in a foreign university. There are universities that accept a GRE score for admissions in business courses as well. Many law schools including Harvard Law School accept GRE score for admission.
The exam holds value in regions like Europe, the US, Canada, Africa, Latin America, Asia Pacific, and the Middle East. More so, the score can also be used to apply for scholarship programs. The test can be taken by anyone for any number of times until their potential as a candidate reflects in their scorecard.
GRE tests the true potential of a candidate for the eligibility as a student for the university they are applying to. It not only represents how prepared you are for the curriculum but it also academically backs your candidature. A high score in the exam increases your chances of getting selected by the university of your choice.
The score is valid for 5 years and a score above 320 increases chances of selection in top universities. While a score above 305 increases the chances of your selection in universities with high acceptance rates.
Unlike other tests, GRE gives the option to send the best test score to universities. As such, this allows a number of attempts until your potential is reflecting in the test score.
GRE has three sections that test your verbal ability, verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, and analytical writing. The candidate gets a 1-minute break before the next question pops up on the screen and a 10-minute break before the commencement of a new section. The test lasts 3 hours and 45 minutes. The test is either conducted online or is paper-based.
