Why Take a GRE® Test?

Only one test gives you the power of confidence.

Confidence comes with knowing that you have the power to do your best, the flexibility to apply more of your own test-taking strategies and the option to send only your best scores to the graduate or business school program of your choice.  

For graduate schools and business schools worldwide. For the career of your choice.

The GRE® revised General Test is the only admissions test that is accepted by thousands of graduate and business programs worldwide — including most top-ranked M.B.A. programs. Scores are also valid for five years, so even if you don’t know your direction now, you have time to explore and decide.

Get to know the test-taker friendly features.

With the GRE® revised General Test, you can apply more of your own test-taking strategies. Within each section, you can:

  • Preview and review questions
  • Skip questions and go back
  • Change answers
  • Use an on-screen calculator for the Quantitative Reasoning section

This is great news. Recent data shows that most GRE® test takers who changed answers went from wrong to right, and boosted scores. And all test takers who skipped a question and later completed it saw the same or better scores.
