Definition of GRE

The GRE (Graduate Record Examination) is increasingly accepted as an entry test for top business schools alongside the GMAT (Graduate Management Admission Test).

GRE is a general test that measures verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning and critical thinking and analytical writing skills. The GRE is used by a variety of advanced education programmes – from masters degrees in engineering or law to PhDs in literature or the arts.

GMAT, by comparison, is designed specifically for those participants entering business school. [1]
