While applying to PhD, Research Potential becomes more important than all other factors. Gaining some sort of research/work experience in the field you plan to study will greatly improve your chances of Admissions. You require GRE General Test Score, TOEFL Score, GRE Subject Test Score, At least three (3) Recommendation Letters from scientists and/or teachers who can assess your ability to perform research, Transcripts to apply to Universities offering PhD Admissions. Sometimes you will be asked to write a research proposal as a part of your application.
