The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is uniquely designed for applicants seeking admission into graduate schools to further sharpen their knowledge. As such, the GRE is deemed a very important criterion for admission into a graduate programme.
The GRE test assesses your analytical and critical reasoning skills because they are essential elements for achieving success in graduate programmes. The GRE Revised General Test ensures that candidates are not tested on prior knowledge of facts related to their undergraduate courses, rather it creates a level playing field for applicants coming from different educational background to compare their qualifications. Thus, the GRE tests applicants on the following areas: Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, and Analytical Writing.
Graduate programme applicants are required to submit their GRE scores along with their undergraduate transcripts, recommendation letters, and other documents as may be required by their chosen institution for admission consideration.
