February Learn how and when to remove this template message Many graduate schools in the United States require GRE results as part of the admissions process.
The GRE is a standardized test intended to measure all graduates' abilities in tasks of general academic nature regardless of their fields of specialization and the extent to which undergraduate education has developed their verbal skills, quantitative skills, and abstract thinking.
In addition to GRE scores, admission to graduate schools depends on several other factors, such as GPA, letters of recommendation, and statements of purpose.
Liberal arts programs may only consider the applicant's verbal score, while mathematics and science programs may only consider quantitative ability. Some schools use the GRE in admissions decisions, but not in funding decisions; others use it for selection of scholarship and fellowship candidates, but not for admissions.
In some cases, the GRE may be a general requirement for graduate admissions imposed by the university, while particular departments may not consider the scores at all. In some cases programs have hard cut off requirements for the GRE; for example, the Yale Economics PhD program requires a minimum quantitative score of to apply.
The length of each exam is minutes. Business schools commonly use the test as one of many selection criteria for admission into an MBA program.
Policies varied widely for several years. However, as of the — admissions season, most business schools accept both tests equally. The primary issue on which business school test acceptance policies vary is in how old a GRE or GMAT score can be before it is no longer accepted.
The standard is that scores cannot be more than 5 years old e. Preparation[ edit ] A variety of resources are available for those wishing to prepare for the GRE.
ETS provides preparation software called PowerPrep, which contains two practice tests of retired questions, as well as further practice questions and review material.
Since the software replicates both the test format and the questions used, it can be useful to predict the actual GRE scores. ETS does not license their past questions to any other company, making them the only source for official retired material.
Several companies provide courses, books, and other unofficial preparation materials. Some students taking the GRE use a test preparation company.
Students who do not use these courses often rely on material from university text books, GRE preparation books, sample tests, and free web resources.
Testing locations[ edit ] While the general and subject tests are held at many undergraduate institutions, the computer-based general test is only held at test centers with appropriate technological accommodations. In the United States, students in major cities or from large universities will usually find a nearby test center, while those in more isolated areas may have to travel a few hours to an urban or university location.
Many industrialized countries also have test centers, but at times test-takers must cross country borders. Validity[ edit ] An analysis of the GRE's validity in predicting graduate school success found a correlation of.Commentary for Academic Writing for Graduate Students: Teacher's Notes and Key (Michigan Series in English for Academic & Professional Purposes) 3rd (third) Edition by Swales, John M., Feak, Christine B.
