GRE stands for Graduate Record Examinations. It is a standardized aptitude exam. It is one of the most widely accepted admissions tests for graduate and business school programs, and is used for admission decisions for MBA, specialized master’s in business and doctoral programs.

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 assess a student’s intellectual, logical abilities, and reasoning abilities. The test allows its takers to skip questions within a section, go back and change answers and to also have the flexibility to choose which questions within a section they want to answer first.
