The GRE (Graduate Record Examinations) is a standardized test taken by students who are applying to postgraduate courses in the US and in some other parts of the world. There are actually two GRE examinations:
• The General Test
• The Subject Tests

Students taking the General test after 1st August 2011 will have to take the Revised GRE General Test. Our site has been fully updated to reflect the changes introduced in the Revised GRE General test.
Unlike the General test, which is unrelated to any specific undergraduate course, the GRE Subject tests are offered in eight specific subject areas and attempt to measure a student�s performance in a subject in which they have majored at undergraduate level.
The GRE is produced by the Educational Testing Service, a US-based non-profit organization. Admissions committees use the scores along with undergraduate records, recommendations and other relevant criteria in evaluating candidates for admission to graduate courses. For some courses GRE is a prerequisite; for others it may be recommended or not required. Always check the requirements of individual institutions before applying.
