GRE is a standardized test which stands for Graduate Record Examination (GRE). This test measures Verbal, Mathematical and Analytical Writing skills of aspirants who wish to pursue Graduate studies abroad. GRE scores are a requirement to apply for graduate courses in most US Universities.
The US-based ETS, that is, the Educational Testing Service, sets the questions for GRE, conducts the test, and sends the score reports to each candidate. It works under the guidance of the Graduate Record Examination Board. For detailed information about GRE®, please refer to the official website of GRE®.
