The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is an easy-to-use computer-based or paper based exam designed to measure both literacy and numeracy at the graduate level. It was developed to be standardized and comprehensive, without depending on a specific educational background. Divided into three sections— verbal reasoning, quantitative problem solving, and analytical writing— this exam is used by many graduate schools in the USA as an assessment of candidacy for enrollment. The GRE is accessible to students around the world including Canada and can be used as a point of comparison for any set of applicants regardless of the field of study or profession. At this point in time, the GRE is even being considered as an alternative to the LSAT, meaning those studying law may be able to utilize this exam instead.

 Half a million individuals take the GRE across 160 countries each year. Thousands of graduate programs accept the scores, including business programs, masters and doctorates. In fact, anyone pursuing a Master’s of Science (MS) or an MBA in the states must take the exam. While the importance of the GRE cannot be stressed enough, it is used by judicators alongside other components such as interviews, work and research experience, current GPA, referral letters, and cover letters. In Canada some universities in some programs and specializations either require the GRE or GRE subject or it is optional or required for some students. The following programs at UBC in Greater Vancouver are some of them: accounting, architecture, Atmospheric science, biochemistry and molecular biology, chemistry, counselling psychology, economics and more.

For many students, they will have to take the GRE and a GRE subject test because their skills will need to be assessed for their specific discipline. This includes anyone applying in these six fields: Biology, Chemistry, English Literature, Mathematics, Physics, and Psychology. Subject tests can be taken at three points in the year, September, October and April, but must be completed in paper form.

Scores range from 130-170 for the Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning sections, and are stated as a whole number. For the Writing portion, scores range from 0-6 and move by half-point increments.

There are three sections in GRE general test: Verbal, Quantitative (math), and Analytical Writing. The GRE tests college-level vocabulary and verbal reasoning; basic math concepts in arithmetic, algebra, and geometry; and your writing and analytical skills. Start to finish, the exam will take you 3 hours and 45 minutes to complete.

The Verbal Reasoning section of the GRE measures your ability to analyze and evaluate written material and synthesize information obtained from it, to analyze relationships among component parts of sentences, and to recognize relationships among words and concepts.
The Verbal Reasoning measure contains three types of questions.

Reading Comprehension: The abilities tested under reading comprehension can range from understanding the meaning of words, sentences, paragraphs, and/or larger texts. distinguishing between minor and major points, identifying the author’s assumptions and perspective, and summarizing a passage
analyzing a text, and drawing conclusions from the information provided
reasoning from incomplete data to infer missing information
understanding the structure of a text in terms of how the parts relate to one another
identifying strengths and weaknesses of a position developing and considering alternative explanations.

Text Completion: In this section, crucial words are omitted and the participant must accurately interpret what is missing.
The format for this sections may include:

1. Passage composed of one to five sentences, with one to three blanks
2. Three answer choices per blank (five answer choices in the case of a single blank)
3.The answer choices for different blanks function independently; i.e., selecting one answer choice for one blank does not affect what answer choices you can select for another blank

4. Single correct answer, consisting of one choice for each blank; no credit for partially correct answers

Sentence Equivalence:
One must find two synonymous words that would both fit into the sentence provided.
Consists of: a single sentence with one blank, and six answer choices
You must select two of the answer choices; no credit for partially correct answers.

Even though the GRE is the exam for the entrance of graduate schools but it is more of a high school math than bachelor.
The breakdown of the questions in the quantitative section is as follows:

Arithmetic that includes integers, fractions, exponents and roots, decimals, real numbers, ratio and percent

Algebra: algebraic expression, rules of exponents, solving linear and quadratic equations, solving linear inequalities, functions, applications, coordinate geometry and graphs of functions.
Geometry: lines and angles, polygons, triangles, quadrilaterals, circles and three dimensional figures
Data analysis: methods of presenting data, numerical methods for describing data, counting methods and probability

The Quantitative Reasoning section measures your ability to:

1. understand, interpret and analyze quantitative information
2. solve problems using mathematical models
3.apply basic skills and elementary concepts of arithmetic, algebra, geometry and data analysis

The Quantitative Reasoning section includes an on-screen calculator. If you are taking the paper-delivered test, a calculator will be provided at the test center.

The Quantitative Reasoning section of the GRE® General Test contains four types of questions:
Quantitative Comparison Questions
Multiple-choice Questions
Select One Answer Choice
Multiple-choice Questions Select One or More Answer Choices
Numeric Entry Questions

Prospective graduate and business school applicants from all around the world who are interested in pursuing a master’s, MBA, specialized master’s in business, J.D. degree, or doctoral degree take the GRE. Applicants come from varying educational and cultural backgrounds, and the GRE provides schools with a common measure for comparing candidates’ qualifications.

GRE scores are used by admissions or fellowship panels to supplement your undergraduate records, recommendation letters and other qualifications for graduate-level study.

Most people do not practice seriously unless they register for the test. After registering you can get your acts together and start planning.

Make a plan according to your strengths and weakness and follow it. Try to spend some time every day and make it fun by making flashcards and so on.

Other than essay writing GRE is mainly a multiple choice exam. In GRE you do not get negative points for wrong answers so guessing is quite fine. Also, you need to manage your time accordingly. E.g. do not waste your time on the questions that will take a long time to answer and first hit the ones that are easy for you. You do not want to lose scores because of the questions that you know the answer for.
Some questions in the math section might not need to be solved completely and you can find the answer by just plugging in. However, it might take some time so you can keep it for the end.
There are a lot of tips and strategies that our GRE expert tutors in Hack Your Course Education implement and you can also find the majority of them by searching the internet.
Practice, practice, practice. If you are serious about a standardized test you should cover as many questions as you can. If you prepare (even alone with no tutor) for two months and you do not see an increase of at least 40 points then something is wrong.

With learning the right strategies, preparing well ahead, practicing enough you can increase your scores very well.

Asian Americans outperformed all other ethnicities and nationality overall according the report published by ETS.

There are hundreds of universities in the USA alone and they have very different rankings and different GRE score requirements. There is usually no minimum mentioned at school website but they have their unwritten rules. e.g. most of the students who get into engineering departments of MIT do not usually get less than 165 in the quantitative sections. No Surprise art student! 165 (around 95% percentile) is practical for engineering graduates! However, it requires most students got around 160 in the verbal section that is very challenging especially for international students. Most of the math-heavy programs, however, accepts less score in the verbal section also.
That being said, most schools are quite fine with scores around 150 that is nearly 60% percentile.

US NEWS is the most trusted websitefor getting an estimate of the possible average score that is needed to pass through the admission officers!

Admission officers look at your score in a holistic way and consider all the facts.
