Graduate record examinations (GRE)

GRE is a computer-based (mostly) or paper-based standardized test and its purpose is to qualify for admissions to masters and doctoral programs in various universities abroad.
GRE revised General Test is taken by individuals applying to graduate programs in engineering, business schools etc.

It is created and administered by Educational Testing Service (ETS); the exam aims to measure verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, analytical writing, and critical thinking skills that have been acquired over a long period of time and that are not related to any specific field of study.

The GRE General Test is offered as a computer-based exam administered at Prometric (a U.S. company in the test administration industry) testing centers. Prospective graduate and business school applicants from all around the world who are interested in pursuing a master's, MBA, specialized master's in business or doctoral degree take the GRE revised General Test.

GRE scores are used by admissions or fellowship panels to supplement your undergraduate records, recommendation letters and other qualifications for graduate-level study. With an increasing number of B-schools accepting the GRE exam scores, candidates with vague post-graduate plans may wish to opt for the GRE rather than the GMAT.

This would enable them to go for an MBA or an M.S., dual degree program or even a Ph.D. Taking the GRE would widen their scope of post-graduate study options, so such candidates may feel the GRE a better and practical test option.

GRE Test Structure


The structure of the computer-based GRE revised General Test consists of 6 sections:

GRE Test Sections:
1. Verbal Reasoning – 2 sections
2. Quantitative reasoning – 2 sections
3. Analytical Writing – 2 tasks
4. Unidentified/unscored section
Section Score Scale Total time
Verbal reasoning 130-170, in 1 point increments
4 hours (3 hours + 45 minutes test +
15 minutes breaks in between)
Quantitative reasoning 130-170, in 1 point increments
Analytical writing 0-6, in half point increments

On-screen calculator provided in Quantitative reasoning section to reduce emphasis on computation.
Analytical Writing uses elementary word processor with insert, delete, cut & paste text options and undo last action (without grammar & spelling checker)

Time Table for a Typical Computer Based Graduate Record Examination:


Section Time allowed Description
1 60 mins Analytical Writing:
Essay 1: Giving One’s Perspective On An Issue.
Essay 2: Analyzing An Argument.

1 minute break

6 30 or 35 mins Experimental Section:

TOTAL TIME: 4 HOURS
NOTE: Sections 2 through 6 can come in any order – for example: Section 2 could be a Quantitative Ability Section and the Experimental Section could be any section except Section 1. Although the Experimental Section will not count in your score, it will look identical to one of the other sections – you won’t know which section it is, so you must do your best on every section of the test.

You can take the computer-delivered GRE revised General Test once every 21 days, up to five times within any continuous rolling 12-month period (365 days). This applies even if you canceled your scores on a test taken previously.
There are no specific GRE Exam dates in India. You can take it any time of the year by taking an appointment with the closest GRE exam center. But with this flexibility, there’s another issue. During the peak application season (generally around August to December), it may be difficult for you to get an appointment in your preferred exam center. You’d be forced to book a day and time at another center that may not be close to where you live.

Scholastic Aptitude Test(SAT)

The SAT is a paper-based standardized test and started in the year 1926. It is widely used for college admissions in the United States. It is owned and published by the College Board, a private Non-profit Organization in the United States. It is developed and administered on behalf of the College Board by the Educational Testing Service. The test is intended to assess a student's readiness for College.

The SAT is typically taken by High School Sophomores, Juniors and Seniors. The College Board states that SAT measures Literacy and Writing Skills that are needed for Academic success in College. The SAT assesses how well the test takers analyze and solve problems – skills they learned in school that they will need in college. The use of the SAT in combination with High School Grade Point Average (GPA) provides a better indicator of success in College than High School Grades alone, as measured by College Freshman GPA.

There are substantial differences in Funding, Curricula, Grading, and Difficulty among U.S. Secondary Schools due to U.S. Federalism, Local Control, and the Prevalence of Private, Distance, and Home Schooled Students.
Since 2007, all 4 year colleges and universities in the United States that require a test as part of an application for admission will accept either the SAT or ACT, and hundreds of colleges and universities do not require any standardized test scores at all for admission.

New SAT


The SAT is changing in March 2016.

The exam will revert to the 1600-point scale, the essay will be optional, and students will have 3 hours to take the exam plus 50 additional minutes to complete the essay, the removal of penalty will be implemented for wrong answers (rights-only scoring).

KEY CHANGES
Focus of test will move from reasoning-based to content-based, and have two main sections (Math & Evidence-Based Reading and Writing). Major changes to content include an increased focus on higher level math, inclusion of a no-calculator math section, focus on evidence-based reading, all passage-based writing questions, and an optional essay section.
SCORING
The two sections will be scored on a scale from 200-800, with a composite score of 1600 calculated by adding the sections together. There will be additional sub scores and insight scores available, and the optional essay will not count towards the overall score. Most of the questions on the SAT, except for the essay and the grid-in math responses, are multiple choice; all multiple-choice questions have five answer choices, one of which is correct.

Age limit


There is no age limit to take the SAT. Ideally you should be in High School.
