The Graduate Record examination (shortened to GRE) is an important exam to consider after completing a bachelor degree.
Mostly it is taken for pursuing further studies and acts as an important measurement for job seekers and gives them advantages, usually in Canada and the USA and some European countries. One can comfortably say that all universities in the countries mentioned above don’t accept postgraduates and higher degree graduates without having undertaken the GRE exam.

The GRE exam has three parts. First is analytical reasoning. This is followed by verbal reasoning which tests language and the choice of words and the ability to read and write. Thirdly comes the mathematical test. It tests the applicant’s logic and some simple mathematics problems and to what extent and ability an individual can solve them. However, it has to be mentioned that the exam has six sections.  One is for analytical reasoning and two each are for verbal reasoning and mathematics tests and lastly there is one extra for the ETS for experimentation as a trial. The score varies from the first section to the other two sections as the first one is graded from 0-6 points. 

The other two sections are graded from 130-170 points. Succeeding in this exam requires at least 260 points overall. One can say that a score of 300 points is considered average and 318 is considered good and 330 is excellent.

Overall, the exam result is valid for 5 years. It costs between  approximately USD $205 – $230 as it is different from one country to another. In conclusion, the exam opens doors for individuals to be able to take their education to the next level or to be able to get a good position in a company.
