GRE stands for Graduate Record Examinations. It is a standardised aptitude exam with a pre-defined syllabus. It is one of the most widely accepted admissions tests for graduate and business school programs, and is used for admissions decisions for MBA, specialized master's in business and doctoral programs.
GRE is divided into two categories. The GRE General Test that measures verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, critical thinking and analytical writing skills - the types of skills required for success in today's demanding graduate and business school programs - and the GRE Subject Tests that measures knowledge of a particular field of study helping students stand out from other applicants by emphasizing their knowledge and skill level in a specific area.
Preparation is key to getting a good score in the GRE. Investing time and effort in preparing for the exam is a critical element in the test taking strategy. The Enlight offers quality GRE coaching that ensures students get the best possible preparation. Here are just a few of the reasons why students should choose to prepare for their GRE with The Enlight:
In addition, The Enlight also offers all its students a comprehensive 5 Point Study Plan built around their needs and requirements. Students enrolling for GRE test preparation with The Enlight will benefit from the ability to:
The Enlight GRE coaching centres adopt a number of powerful preparation methods:
Content: The Enlight uses the most relevant and frequently tested content helping its students to fully familiarise themselves with the GRE and to organise their time in an effective manner to achieve the best scores.
Critical Thinking Strategies: Realising that standardised tests rely on more than just the content, The Enlight constantly updates and customises its study and reference material, along with practice test papers, to ensure that it is addressing students' specific areas of concern. A personalised report which identifies areas of weaknesses and strengths is generated to help the student identify his or her testing patterns and work in a focused manner. All answer explanations are detailed and provide alternative approaches to answer a question. The Enlight result-oriented strategies enable students to increase both speed and accuracy.
Essential Practice: The Enlight collection of practice tests, other than basic content and timed drills, follow the same structure of the actual GRE. The realistic practice and extensive training, as well as test day tips and exam strategies provided by expert instructors, enhance students' confidence in preparation for the actual test.
No Time Constraints: The Enlight classroom training programme lasts two months with an additional four months given to the student to use its centre resources. The class schedule is divided into modules, each of which concentrates on the topics tested on the GRE. Though two months of training is recommended, students may opt to complete the course faster or slower according to their needs. A combination of attending both weekday and weekend classes allows students to prepare for the GRE faster if necessary.
The GRE is a multiple-choice, multi-stage test that measures verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, critical thinking and analytical writing skills. It has been designed in a way so as to calculate the student's intellectual and logical abilities, adapting to performance of students based on previous quantitative/ verbal ability sections. The test allows its takers to skip questions within a section, go back and change answers and have the flexibility to choose which questions within a section they want to answer first.
The GRE question types are designed to closely reflect the kind of thinking that students will be expected to do in graduate or business school and are based upon the following skills:
|Section||Number of Questions||Time|
|Analytical Writing Assessment (One section with two separately timed tasks)||'Analysis of an Issue' task and 'Analysis of an argument' task||30 minutes per task|
|Verbal Reasoning (Two sections)||20 questions per section||30 minutes per section|
|Quantitative Reasoning(Two sections)||20 questions per section||35 minutes per section|
The Analytical Writing section will always precede all other test sections. The Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning and Experimental Section (the latter of which is not scored but which can be either Verbal or Quantitative) may appear in any order. An identified Research Section that is not scored may also be included in the test, but will always appear at the end.
|Verbal Reasoning||130 - 170 scale, in 1 point increments|
|Quantitative Reasoning||130 - 170 scale, in 1 point increments|
|Analytical Writing||0-6 score level, in half-point increments|
You can reschedule or cancel your registration at any time. To avoid forfeiting your test fee, you must do so no later than four days before your test date (10 days in Mainland China).
The GRE score can be reported to four schools of the applicant's choice for free.
The GRE General Test measures a student's verbal and quantitative reasoning, critical thinking and analytical writing skills - disciplines that are relevant to every field of study and important in graduate or business schools.
The first sections of the Verbal and Quantitative Reasoning parts range from the levels of 'Easy' to 'Difficult'. Each subsequent section is administered based on the student's overall performance in the preceding Verbal and Quantitative Reasoning section. A score of 130 - 170 is generated for the Verbal and Quantitative sections. Both scores are then added to give a total score on the scale of 260 - 340.
Students will use a basic word processor developed by ETS. The basic word processor contains a number of functionalities: insert text, delete text, cut-and-paste and undo the previous action. Other tools such as a grammar checker or a spell checker and are not available in the ETS software. This makes essay writing fair in relation to handwritten essays of the students in the paper-based tests.
Students must make a concerted effort to prepare for the GRE the second time and retake the exam, if they feel that their GRE test scores do not reflect their actual capabilities.
A GRE score is valid for five years. While a student can retake the exam to improve upon scores, Institutions will have access to all your scores registered in the last five years. Hence, candidates are advised to prepare thoroughly before appearing for the exam.
Our 48-hour module is specifically customised and designed to make a candidate 'exam ready'. However if a student is deemed to be under prepared, we offer a combination of extra tutoring, further mock tests and result-oriented strategic sessions to prepare the student to take the GRE.
