What is GRE?
The Graduate Record Examination (GRE), conducted by Education Testing Service (ETS), is a standardized examination for all graduate school candidates. Any accredited graduate, business or professional school, or any department or division within a school, may require or recommend that its applicants take the GRE General test. The GRE General Test measures Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning and Analytical Writing Skills, which are not related to any specific field of study.
(IMPORTANT: Except Management graduate programs that require you to take the GMAT exam.)
Who should take the GRE test?
Prospective applicants (who have completed or are planning to complete their graduation) and wish to pursue post graduate or master’s degree abroad, take the GRE General Test. Your GRE test scores will be used by admission or fellowship panels to supplement undergraduate records and other qualifications for graduate study. The scores provide a common measure for comparing the qualifications of applicants and aid in evaluating grades and recommendations.

How GRE can benefit you?
Preparing for GRE needs extra efforts as English is not our first language. Though most of Indian students perform well overall, some of them need to work harder than others to achieve acceptable scores. GRE is viewed by admission officers with great consideration, in addition to the academic performance and language proficiency exam score.
Students coming from different backgrounds and under-graduate schools apply to the same graduate schools. The GRE, therefore, becomes a fair test to select students of the same level. You must bear in mind, though, that it is not the only evaluation that you will be required to clear before getting accepted; there might be others, but GRE still stands to be one of the most crucial ones.
Students, who cannot boast high college GPA, can still aim to do exceptionally well in the GRE to open up new avenues for them. So if your college GPA is not something that you are very proud of, you still have a chance to outshine those who are with great GRE scores.
The weight of your GRE scores in graduate admissions varies by programs. Some graduate schools use the GRE as a cutoff while others consider it to offset a low GPA
Additionally, different sections of the GRE could be weighted differently. For example, if you are applying to a Math or a Statistics program, the graduate program will probably place more importance on how you performed on the Quantitative section than on Verbal and Analytical sections. Similarly, if you are applying to an English graduate program, your verbal and analytical Writing scores will most likely be more important.
Some schools use the GRE in admission decisions, but not in funding decisions; others use GRE for the selection of scholarship and fellowship candidates, but not for admissions.
In some cases, the GRE may be a general requirement for graduate admissions imposed by the university, while particular departments may not consider the scores at all.
The best way to find out how a particular school or program evaluates a GRE score in the admissions process is to contact the person in charge of graduate admissions for the specific program in question(and not the graduate school in general)
The scores on the GRE General Test consistently predict graduate school students’ grades and performance
The GRE test is offered year-round at computer based test centers in India and many more countries.
