How do I apply for GRE

The GRE and Graduate Studies Abroad

If you are considering a university degree, you may have thought of taking the opportunity to study abroad. Of course, the application process for graduate schools differs from country to country. However, there are some key similarities that should be focused on.

Take the Graduate Records Examinations (GRE) test, for example, which is a generally standardized test that tests verbal and quantitative conclusions as well as analytical writing. This exam is almost universally required to study at the college level in the United States. So if you have your sights on an American university, you will certainly need to prepare for the test.

That being said, many American students mistakenly believe that they do not need to take the GRE if they are planning to study abroad. However, many international graduate-level programs also use this test as an indicator of a student's potential to improve their previous undergraduate and professional performance.

The test is particularly important to be accepted into international business schools. However, many other programs will also ask to see your scores. It is a good idea to check with your particular school or program well in advance of the application date to find out if a GRE test result is required for admission.

Here is a full list of universities that accept GRE test scores. Note that this list may change depending on the academic year.

How does the GRE work?

Once you've determined that the test is required, you can visit the GRE official website to register for a date and register to complete the test. You can take the test at over 1,000 test centers in more than 160 countries. The tests are carried out continuously. However, if you are a student from China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, or Korea, the exam is only available up to three times a month.

And since you make a commitment to register and take the test, make sure you are thoroughly prepared to show schools that you are ready to take on the graduate study challenge. There are many resources, both in print and digital, that can help you study so that you can begin the test with confidence.

On the day of the test, you are ready to spend the full 3 hours and 45 minutes answering questions of varying difficulty. As mentioned earlier, you are expected to demonstrate a command of oral and quantitative reasoning, as well as the written ability to make a solid argument. In addition, the test is conducted in English, so an advanced level is required.

Don't worry, you can either report or cancel your results depending on your test performance. Do you think you can do better? You can use the GRE computer once every 21 days up to five times within a twelve month period. If you are satisfied and decide to report, you will also have the option to choose which schools will receive your scores.

Therefore, it is important to know in advance which schools you want to apply to. We can help you with this decision, especially if you are seriously thinking of studying abroad.
