Graduate Records Examination (GRE) – Doorsteps for quality education
GRE was conducted since 1942 by ETS (Educational Testing Services) in United States. This exam evaluates the aptitude & knowledge of students appearing for Post graduation & other higher studies in top notch colleges in United States, Canada & Britain. To secure a seat in a reputed foreign university is not a hurdle for the right candidate. This examination screens the logical, analytical and language skills of applicant. GRE scores are taken with a great priority by most foreign universities as an international standard for filtering the talented students to their institution.
GRE exam was criticized for its uniform structure in past decades. So the ETS is cautious enough to change the level & approach of questions continuously. From 2000-2010 major changes happened making this no.1 examination for foreign university admissions. GRE is fully computer based examination. However paper based examination is available for areas with internet access problems. GRE is conducted almost all days in each year. But with the latest notification from ETS there are some fixed dates each year. Candidates are required to choose a date of their convenience from suggestion list provided by ETS.
