The Graduate Record Exam is a test taken for business school applicants. It is a computer-based, multiple choice standardized test that most business and graduate schools require in order to consider students for admission into postgraduate programmes. The test was developed by ETS.
What are the main topics covered in the GRE?
There are three sections in the GRE which are:
Sometimes you can also see an unscored section or a research section which is not very important but if you do have time, it is recommended that you do it.
What is the duration of the GRE exam?
The GRE is 3 hours and 45 minutes long, and consists of 6 parts which are:
Two 30-minute essays
Three 60-minute sections of verbal reasoning
Two 60-minute sections of quantitative reasoning
One unscored section for the rest of the test which can be either verbal or quantitative reasoning.
How is the GRE scored?
The Verbal and Quantitative sections of the GRE are each scored from 130 to 170. The Analytical Writing Assessment is scored from 0 to 6 in half-point increments.
When can you take the GRE?
Since colleges have many application deadlines, the time you take your GRE depends on when you wish to apply to the college. You should take the GRE at least a month before your application deadline. The score is valid for five years from the date you take the exam. To prepare for the GRE, you will need an average of 2-3 months with approximately 100+ hours of study.
A 30-hour intensive course, twice a week over 3 months, culminating in a burst of daily sessions the week before the exams. The first month is dedicated to teaching you concepts and techniques and making sure you are able to grasp them perfectly. In the following two months, you will perfect these techniques going through the vast collection of interactive exercises and GRE practice papers that I have painstakingly put together.
PRACTICE MATERIAL FOR GRE
I help students gain access to all the preparatory materials they require before taking the GRE. From my own practice questions, to mock tests, GRE books, and more - I ensure that every student I teach has had the chance to review a wide range of material before attempting the exam.
This is a crash course of three weeks aimed towards students who either wish to improve their score or re-examine the strategies required to ace the verbal section. The crash course generally follows the same structure of the 30-hour course, but condensed into a shorter time frame. It can be taught online or in person.
STUDENTS WITH LEARNING DISABILITIES
If you have a learning disability I will customise the course for you. I will also help and guide you through the SSD process, which can be very confusing for parents and children.
