GRE® test stands for GRADUATE RECORD EXAMINATIONS®. There are two types of GRE® tests:
(1) GRE® General test, and
(2) GRE® Subject test.
The GRE® General Test is required by many graduate and professional schools in the U.S and is an important criterion for admission to their graduate programmes. Applicants must submit their GRE® scores together with certain other records/requirements as part of the process of admission to graduate schools.
The GRE® General Test measures the Quantitative and Verbal skills that a candidate has picked-up and refined during his school and college days. The various college admission committees are of the opinion that a high GRE® test score is a very good indicator of how successful a person could be at graduate school. Hence, most admission committees, to assess the suitability of a candidate for their graduation programmes use the GRE® General Test.
Structure of our classes
Vocabulary: To cater effectively to the vocabulary levels of GRE® test we have several classes exclusively dedicated to building the vocabulary of our students. To practice and test the skills acquired in class, the vocabulary sessions have additional mini-tests called VCTs or Vocabulary Class Tests. These are administered from the second Vocabulary session onwards. There is a mid-course test and a full-fledged, vocabulary-skills test covering antonyms, analogies and sentence completion. We offer 17 vocabulary classes where we use proven methods of vocabulary improvement to help you prepare for one of the most dreaded areas of the GRE® Test.
Besides this, there are classes dedicated to strategies involved in sentence completion, analogies, antonyms and reading comprehension. Since analytical writing has become a crucial component in the admission process, we offer 15 classes, where we focus on this critical area. Some classes focus on basic writing skills, where you will write essays on simpler topics. We then move on to classes where the focus is on sentence construction and grammar-related issues. These classes will help you prepare yourself to face the rigours of the analytical writing section.
Quantitative Aptitude: We offer 8 classes in Quantitative ability, where all the concepts of Arithmetic, algebra, geometry, data interpretation, etc., are taught and revised. For students from the non-maths streams, there are additional special classes to build-up the basic concepts.
Statement of Purpose: Most college admission committees ask for a write-up from candidates seeking admission called the "Statement Of Purpose (SOP)". One full class is devoted to this important exercise of how to write an SOP. Apart from that if a student writes the final SOP he can e-mail the essays to us and we will edit the essays.
Selecting Universities: If a particular student needs help in selecting the universities he needs to apply to, we can help him select the universities which suit his profile and budget.

We believe that a student from a branch of Science and Engineering has adequate grip over maths and can tackle the section on quantitative ability with a fair degree of comfort. This is because the concepts tested are usually of High School level only. With some grounding on basic maths, even students from non-maths background can do well. However, since GRE® test is a 'verbal-intensive' examination we feel that the verbal part of the test will take about 3 to 6 months of active preparation. Besides this, intensive preparation is required to effectively tackle the analytical writing section.
