How to Prepare for GRE?

    Updated on: 05 Sep 2023 4 min read

    GRE (Graduate Record Examination) is the standardized test that is universally accepted by thousands of graduate and business schools.  Formulated by ETS (Educational Testing Service), GRE is a computer-adaptive test. It is split up into three sections namely verbal, quantitative and analytical writing. Verbal and quantitative sections are individually scaled from 130 to 170 and analytical writing ranges from a score of 0 – 6. The secret of cracking it lies in how smart you knock your brains within the 4 hours of the test. Yes, it is longer than an old historical movie but it is certain to substantiate your academic profile.  We’ll admit it – we envy the happy faces of the perfect scorers in posters.  One doesn’t need to inherit the genetic lottery of superintelligence to ace it. Rather, diligent preparation and smart strategies will easily make you get through it successfully.

    Analytical Writing Assessment

    The importance of this section is not to be overshadowed by the other two sections as this plays an important role in assessing a person’s critical thinking and writing skills. Usually, a score above 4 is considered good. You are required to analyze and evaluate an argument and an essay. The evaluator will grade you based on how well you construct and sustain a coherent discussion. The real challenge is that you’re given a span of 30 minutes for each part of this section where you must consider the issue, devise your response and finally compose it. Flipping through well-graded responses and practicing topic pools available online will help you through this part.

    No matter how top-notch your GPA is, you will not be able to snatch a good score in your GRE unless you rigorously prepare for it. Good quality study materials and practice tests are available online. Plan your schedule systematically and make sure you are familiar with all topics. Once you book your slot for the test, you will be able to download the official ETS guide and a CD containing 2 full practice tests which grade you accurately based on your performance. It is a clear indication of what you can expect during the test.

    The perfect score that you’re dreaming of is just a few yards away. And remember - Practice makes perfect!
