Graduate Records Examination (GRE)


The GRE General Test is a standardized test created and administered by the Educational Testing Service, commonly known as ETS, that is designed to measure overall academic readiness for graduate school. It is often an admissions requirement for many graduate schools in the United States. Some grad programs require that applicants take not only the GRE General Test, but also a GRE Subject Test that assesses technical knowledge related to a specific discipline like physics, psychology or mathematics. When applying to graduate schools, be sure to find out if the GRE General Test and/or the GRE Subject Test is required and prepare early.
