The Immaculate GRE

There is this burning question in your mind. Why is THE GRE, the only admissions test, accepted by thousands of graduate and business programs worldwide — including most top-ranked M.B.A. programs? THE IMMACULATE has answers! Several years of extensive research by THE IMMACULATE R&D team have strengthened the fact that THE GRE is undoubtedly the most flexible test, catering to the admission requirements, for different courses.
Different sections of the GRE hold different weightage depending on the program you are applying for.
Eg: The score on the quantitative section will matter more than that on the Verbal and Analytical sections, if you are applying to a math or statistics program. Similarly, if you are applying to an English graduate program, your Verbal and Analytical Writing scores will hold more value over the Math section.
Moreover, THE IMMACULATE R& D Team has identified that some schools use the GRE in admission decisions, but not in funding decisions; others use the GRE for the selection of scholarship and fellowship candidates, but not for admissions. In some cases, the GRE may be a general requirement for graduate admissions imposed by the university, while particular departments may not consider the scores at all. For foreign students, the writing scores are sometimes scrutinized more and used as an indicator of overall proficiency in English.
The best way to find out how a particular school or program evaluates a GRE score in the admissions process is to contact THE IMMACULATE’s spin-off unit TI Abroad which specializes in Overseas Education & immigration.

About THE GRE (Graduate Record Examination)

THE GRE is considered the highest framework within which an applicant’s eligibility for gaining admission and acceptance into graduate programs (fields other than business) in the US is assessed. It is a systemized test which measures the Verbal, Mathematical and Analytical Writing skills of students. RE scores are demanded by most universities in the US along with the applications from aspirants as a mandatory entry requirement, although it is only one of the factors that plays a vital role in guaranteeing admission.

GRE Format

The test is computer-based with non-repetitive questions.
The GRE® is divided into three parts - Quantitative, Verbal and Analytical Writing Assessment, as follows:

There is an un-scored section which appears after the Analytical writing section in any order. This section is un-identified. An identified un-scored research section may be also be a part of the test and is always the last section of the test.

Rescheduling of test and scores

It is better to reschedule rather than cancel the test since cancellation, 4 days before the test, warrants only 50 % refund of the fees. The test date and the test center can be changed till 4 days ahead of the test date by paying a fee of USD 50.
Scores can be cancelled by students if they are not happy with their scores and cancelled scores also do not appear on score reports. A re-attempt can be made after 21 days. If this second score is lower than the previous cancelled score then the former can be re-instated within 60 days by paying a fee of $50.
The GRE can be taken 5 times a year (upto 4 re-attempts allowed per year).


To how many universities can the same score be sent?
Upto 4 universities on the day of the exam. After this, a fee of $27 per university is charged for sending the scores. The student can send his best score irrespective of the number of attempts which do not influence the admission decision-making process in any manner.
Does the score on THE GRE alone guarantee admission to universities?
No. It is one of the factors though a good GRE® score does have an impact on your chances of getting admission and financial aid.
What is the minimum eligible education qualification required to write the GRE?
