What is GRE and for whom?

Graduate Record Examination is called GRE for short. This is a fully computerized test. Which is required to do Masters or PhD in many universities in many countries after completing Honors.

At present, there is a growing trend among the students of our country to go abroad to study after completing Honors. But it is natural that the education system of our country will be different from the education system of other countries. The standard of study and evaluation method varies from country to country and university to university. For many European universities, only CGPA and IELTS / TOEFL scores are required. But universities in several other countries, including those in the United States and Canada, do not just measure eligibility by CGPA. They measure students from different countries of the world, from different backgrounds, on a uniform scale. A common test for all, such as the GRE, tests merit. Writing skills in English or math are not tested here; This test basically verifies the ability to analyze.

The CGPA approach of each university in the world is different. So it is good news for those who have low CGPA. Because they have another chance to prove their worth here through the GRE. Mainly Science and Arts background students take GRE. GMAT is required for Commerce background.

GRE Question Structure:

GRE test is taken in 3 parts-

i. Analytical Writing

ii. Verbal Reasoning (English)

iii. Quantitative Reasoning

i. Analytical Writing: Time 1 hour, meaning 60 minutes. At this time issue and argumentative these two types of essays have to be written. 30 minutes is allotted in each section. Numbers are given on a scale of 1 to 6. Since this is the writing part, if you have good skills of writing in English and presenting ideas clearly, you can easily get 3.5-4 in writing.

ii. Verbal Reasoning: This test tests the proficiency of the examinee on English words and sentences. Its main basis is vocabulary. The better the vocabulary, the easier it will be for him. There are basically three types of questions -

Text Completion- Fill in the blanks with one, two or three blanks.

Sentence Equivalence

Reading Comprehension- Understanding the meaning of reading a passage (there will be multiple choice questions where only one is correct;

iii. Quantitative Reasoning: It is also called Math Part. This part usually comes from college level (HSC / equivalent). However, there is no arithmetic from trigonometry. There are two steps here too.

The verbal number is 160 and the quantitative number is 180. There are 340 questions in total and two sets in each part. In 1 hour, i.e. 30 minutes in Verbal, a total of 40 questions were given in two sections of 20 each. On the other hand, for the same number of questions in Quantitative, a total of 60 minutes is given for 35 minutes. The value of each question is assumed. Since there is no way to understand that no section is scoring, each section has to be given very well.

GRE test method:

There are some differences between GRE and conventional testing methods. Conventional tests are done on paper, and GRE tests are done on computers. Traditional tests show how many marks for a question. But this is not exactly the case in GRE. Here the computer gives a score considering the overall performance that follows certain rules or formulas. For example, since there is a verbal and a math part, if one performs well, the other is difficult and vice versa. When the GRE test is done, everyone is seated in front of a separate computer and the room inspectors or invigilators are in the outer room. They can see the activities of each examinee in the closed circuit camera.
