For admission to a business school, the one question that baffles students is which standardized test to take. As quoted by Telangana Today, the number of GRE test takers has increased by 10.6 percent.
Whether in India or Overseas, the GRE General Test has some major advantages.
Top-ranked business schools such as Stanford, Harvard, Yale and London Business School accept GRE test score for their MBA programs. A recent survey by Kaplan Test Prep indicates that majority of B-schools treat both GMAT and GRE test-takers equally.
It can power any career
GRE test score is accepted for thousands of different types of master’s and doctoral programmes around the world. It is not confined to only business programs. For students aspiring for a dual degree programme, taking the GRE test is the best choice. One can apply to multiple programmes with one test in this case. It results in a reduced amount of time and energy required to prepare for two separate exams.
Some law schools in the US are also accepting GRE scores instead of LSAT scores.
Let’s have a look at the three best advantages this test has to offer:
- It has many test-taker friendly features. In each section, a student can review questions, skip some if required and go back to change answers. A study by ETS shows that most GRE test takers went from wrong to right answers and boosted their scores
- The ScoreSelect option is a real advantage for students. Those who sit for the test more than once can choose which set of scores to send to the B-schools
- The Powerprep tests by ETS give students an opportunity to better their score for free
Having discussed the advantages and global acceptance, we can finally bring ourselves to a conclusion. Taking the GRE test is the smartest choice for students aspiring to apply to business programmes worldwide.
