What is the GRE?

December 09, 2022 by CATPrep

The GRE (Graduate Record Examination) is a standardized test that is often required for admission to graduate schools in the United States. The test is designed to assess a person’s critical thinking, analytical writing, verbal reasoning, and quantitative reasoning skills. The GRE is administered by the Educational Testing Service (ETS), and the score is used by graduate schools to assess an applicant’s potential for success in their programs. Unlike the GMAT, which is specifically designed for business school applicants, the GRE is intended for use in a wider range of graduate programs, including fields such as education, social sciences, and natural sciences.
