GRE FAQs

1Which MBA programs accept GRE scores?
Business schools worldwide accept GRE scores for their MBA, specialized master's and other doctoral business programs, including many top-ranked programs. View the most current list of business schools accepting GRE scores for MBA admissions
2How can business schools compare applicants who have submitted GRE scores with applicants who have submitted GMAT® scores?
We have developed the GRE Comparison Tool to allow business schools to place GRE scores in the context of GMAT® scores. Business schools can input GRE Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning scores into the GRE Comparison Tool and the Tool will provide estimated GMAT scores.* You can access the GRE Comparison Tool to learn more about it.
3Do business schools have a test preference?
According to a recent Kaplan survey, nearly eight out of 10 MBA programs have no test preference. In other words, most MBA programs view GRE and GMAT scores equally.
4Are there other sources of information about the test?
You can sign up for free alerts and reminders about registration, test preparation and more at the TakeTheGRE.com website. You can visit the official GRE General Test page on Facebook®, LinkedIn®, Sina Weibo or the GRE Official page on WeChat. There you can share advice and cheer on other prospective test takers. The GRE program participates in student fairs in select locations. These fairs provide an opportunity to talk directly with a representative. Check our schedule for upcoming events. You can also register for one of our FREE webinars to learn more about the test and test preparation tools and chat with a representative. Available in multiple languages and time zones!
5What skills does the test measure?
The Verbal Reasoning section measures your ability to analyze and draw conclusions from discourse, understand multiple levels of meaning, select important points and understand the meanings of sentences and entire texts.

The Quantitative Reasoning section measures your ability to interpret and analyze quantitative information and use mathematical skills such as arithmetic, algebra, geometry, probability and statistics to solve problems.

The Analytical Writing section measures your ability to sustain a well-focused, coherent discussion, articulate complex ideas clearly and effectively, support your ideas with relevant examples and examine claims and accompanying evidence.
6How does the computer-delivered test work?
The Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning sections are section-level adaptive, meaning that the first section of the Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning measures spans a range of difficulty levels, from easy to difficult. The first section is assembled such that, overall, the first section is of average difficulty. The difficulty level of the second section of each of the measures depends on your performance on the first section. For example, if for the Quantitative Reasoning measure you do very well on the first section, the second section of the Quantitative Reasoning measure will be at a higher level of difficulty. The scoring for the Quantitative Reasoning measure takes into consideration the total number of questions answered correctly across the two sections, as well as the difficulty level of the section (similar process for the Verbal Reasoning measure).
7What level of math content is included in the test?
The GRE General Test uses the foundations of high school math to test quantitative reasoning. The test material measures your ability to understand basic concepts of arithmetic, algebra, geometry and data analysis; to reason quantitatively; and to solve problems in a quantitative setting.
8How are the Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning sections scored?
The Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning measures are section-level adaptive. This means the computer selects the second section of a measure based on the performance on the first section. Within each section, all questions contribute equally to the final score. For each of the two measures, a raw score is computed. The raw score is the number of questions answered correctly.

The raw score is converted to a scaled score through a process known as equating. The equating process accounts for minor variations in difficulty among the different test editions as well as differences in difficulty among individuals' tests introduced by the section-level adaptation. Thus a given scaled score of a particular measure reflects the same level of performance regardless of which section was selected and when the test was taken.

7I have already gone through the basics but my practice test scores are low. How will CrackVerbal help me?
If your scores are not going up then we are told, as per Indian education system, that we need to practice harder. Isn’t that what we saw in the guy who topped in school and college – that he burned the midnight oil? So we hit the books even more intensely only to realize we have hit a “plateau” and it is very, very frustrating to be “stuck” at an average 650 to 690 score.

The problem here is not with practice – the problem is that you have an underlying technique that is flawed. So the more you practice the better you are getting at that flawed technique. In fact you are getting BETTER AT BEING BAD. The only way to improve scores is to use the right technique – practice will only help hone it. We help you think with a fresh perspective and work with you to come out of your ‘mold’.
8What are the credentials of the faculty teaching at Tathaastu?
The most important part of any training institute is the faculty – the facilitators who work with you during your classroom sessions. Not only do we choose them through a very difficult selection process, we also make them go through rigorous training. The unique aspect of our faculty is that they are not just your class trainers but because they are successful leaders in their professional life – people who can talk about their times in the corporate world, and about life in general.
