The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is a standardized test that is required to get admission for graduate level in the United. It was Created and administered by Educational Testing Service (or ETS) in 1949. The aim of this test is basically to measure the verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, critical thinking, and analytical writing skills of a student.
In the United States and many other English speaking countries GRE General Test is offered as a computer-based exam which is administered by selected qualified testing centers. And paper-based exams are also offered in areas of the world where computer-based testing is not available.
GRE scores which are required for admission process can vary according to level of study and schools. It has been argued about GRE that its exam format is too tough and not user friendly because it seems as GRE is for only know how well a student is familiar with the test procedure rather than his/her expertise. After this argue ETS announced to redesign the test structure starting in fall of 2007.
