The GRE stands for the Graduate Requirement Exam and is a common admission test to be taken by all students who wish to study for a postgraduate course in the USA. The GRE does not apply to students of law.
For applicants within the USA the GRE test
costs US$160; for those taking the test outside the USA the fee is US$190. The test usually lasts for a bit over four hour including registering for the test and filling basic information.
The verbal section of the test has 20 questions, which should be completed within thirty minutes and the maths/numerical section has 20 questions, which should be completed within thirty-five minutes. Students are advised not to waste time figuring out the answer for a particular question; they are advised to move on to the next question in the test.
Earlier GRE scores were not accepted for business programs; but now most US institutions accept GRE scores for entry into business programs.
