In the first video, Chris speaks about the sections in the GRE and the scoring patterns.
A GRE test comprises three parts - verbal, quantitative and analytical writing. The first two components are rated on a scale of 130 to 170. The final part involves the writing of two essays and students can score on a scale of 0 to 6.
The tests judges the student’s writing, numerical and logical and reasoning skills. All aspects of mathematics from algebra to trigonometry find a place in the quantitative portion of the test.
Students can take the GRE test multiple times and it is very important that they send the best score that they have attained to ensure that they have a good chance to get selected during the admission screening process. It is not advisable to send a different GRE score for the same application. Different institutions apply different parameters with respect to the GRE scores; some institutions might determine an average value based on the various GRE scores submitted by the applicant.
