What is the GMAT and GRE?

Posted on Jul 07, 2016

The GMAT or GRE are an integral part of the college admissions process and a requirement for most universities. So let’s learn a little bit more about each of these exams:

The GMAT – the Graduate Management Admission Test – is a globally recognized college admission test that is required for admission to most business schools. The overall, or composite, GMAT score ranges from 200 to 800 and increase in 10-point increments.

The GRE – the Graduate Record Examination – is a test required for admission to most graduate colleges and an increasing number of business schools. The Verbal and Quantitative scores range from 130 to 170 and increase in 1-point increments.

Both exams have a validity of 5 years.

You can retake the GRE or GMAT as many times as you like, however in general we have found scores do not significantly change after 3 attempts.
