The GRE subject test offers students the chance to demonstrate their level of learning in a specific subject. The GRE subject test is taken in addition to the main GRE test.
Currently the GRE subject test is offered in the following subjects - Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology, Biology, Chemistry, Literature in English, Mathematics, Physics and Psychology. The GRE Computer Science Test is no longer offered. The GRE subject test scores can be used to supplement the applicant’s undergraduate marks.
