What is the Gre Test?

The GRE, or Graduate Record Examination, is a standardized test that helps determine a persons’ readiness for graduate school. Basically, it serves the same purpose as the SAT, but is used for graduate school admissions instead of undergraduate admissions. The exam itself consists of four sections: a verbal section, a quantitative section, a writing section, and an experimental section (which does not count toward your score, but contains questions that the testing service is considering using in the future. While each test has an experimental section, the test-taker is not aware of which section this is, and will complete it as if it were a scored section.) The GRE has a maximum score of 800, and a minimum score of 200. For more information see here:
