Increase Your GRE Score


The Graduate Record Examination, better known as the GRE, is a critical step in the graduate school or business school application process. It is a multiple-choice, computer-based, standardized exam that is often required for admission to graduate programs and graduate business programs (MBA) globally. The GRE provides graduate and business schools with common measures for comparing students’ qualifications and readiness for graduate-level academic work. School admissions committees will look at a student’s GRE score, along with their academic record and supporting materials, to assess their readiness for the standards of graduate academic study. A high score on the GRE will have a direct and positive impact on a student’s graduate or business school application.
