The General Test or GRE is a standardized test, which is accepted for admission to different disciplines at many business and graduate schools all across the globe. There are two modes in GRE 2019; paper-based formats and computer-based formats. Apart from the general test of GRE 2019, there are six subject tests in GRE that evaluate the knowledge of the candidates in their own fields. Aspirants who want to pursue higher education such as Master’s degree, MBA or Ph.D. may appear for the GRE.
The GRE test is available in 160 countries and in more than 1000 test centers. It covers three important sections- Verbal Reasoning, Analytical Writing, and Quantitative Reasoning. Analytical Writing is scored on a 0-6 scale and Quantitative and Verbal Reasoning are scored on a 130-170 scale.
There is no eligibility to appear in GRE 2019. Aspirants may apply to GRE 2019 regardless of qualification and age because there are not any particular eligibility criteria to appear in GRE 2019. The students, however, need to meet the admission criteria for the universities they apply to. A GRE score is used for postgraduate programs, candidates after completing their undergraduate studies must opt for it.
The score of GRE 2019 is used for admission into Masters and Ph.D. courses abroad, particularly in the US and Canada universities. Universities in many Asian and European countries have also begun to accept GRE scores for various graduate programs. It is the universities and not the countries that need a GRE score. All courses do not need GRE scores in a university. Within a university also, some departments may request for GRE score and some might not.
You can take the GRE test one time every 21 days, up to 5 times in a 12-month period. This is applicable even when you cancel your score on a previous test taken.
