GRE (Graduate Record Examination)
The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) test is taken by individuals applying to graduate schools. The test questions are designed to measure verbal, quantitative and analytical writing skills and are not necessarily related to any particular field of study. The test reflects the opportunities and efforts that have contributed to the development of those abilities. IMFS has the distinction of being one of the first classes to be prepared to teach the latest pattern of the GRE to our students. In addition to the regular pattern of teaching, the student will undergo vigorous training in writing the essays. Since his skills in English will be exposed, he will be taught basic English grammar and be taught how and what to compose in an essay.
You will be able to see your scores immediately after the test. Prior to seeing your scores, you have the option of cancelling the results and rescheduling to take the test again at another time. You must wait 30 days before taking this test again. If you take it sooner, the scores will not count. You can appear 5 times in a calendar year for the GRE. A score of 153 + in the verbal section and 159 + in the quantitative section will ensure your admission in a ranked university and will improve your chances of getting financial assistance.
