GRE – Graduate Record Examinations
What is GRE?
The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is a standardized test conducted by Educational Testing Service (ETS), considered as a graduate-level admission requirement by many universities across the world. The GRE is considered as a benchmark to evaluate applicants from across the world and assess their skills in three areas – Verbal reasoning skills, Quantitative reasoning and Analytical skills.

20 Hours of Doubt Solving Sessions
We provide our students with one-on-one sessions to help resolve their doubts and queries and work on their weak areas , thereby helping them achieve excellence.

This program is designed for students who are strapped for time, require specific attention to certain topics or want a more personalized curriculum.Mission Career assesses the student’s current skill set and then determines the number of hours of personalized instruction required. The pace of each session will be dependent on student’s learning curve to ensure that the student fully absorbs the concepts and strategies taught in class. Assignments will be provided at the end of each session to reinforce the concepts learnt.
Test Series & Doubt Solving
Mental fitness, calmness and confidence are essential attributes required to secure a good GRE score. Taking mock exams in a familiar environment may not be fruitful. Therefore, as part of in-class training program, students are required to take a series of tests in a setting that mimics the actual GRE environment. After taking these tests, students have the choice of scheduling appointment with the concerned faculty members to get their doubts resolved.
Why Test Scores Are Important
If you are planning to pursue your MS abroad in the near future, you will be required to take the GRE exam. The importance of these scores varies from one university to another. Incidentally, different graduate schools have different requirements when it comes to GRE scores. For some schools, it is the first hurdle you have to get past in order for them to even look at your application. For example, some universities may say, “If you do not get above 320 then we do not look at your application!” Other schools may use it as a tie-breaker at the end of the admissions process to separate you from other similar applicants. Most schools, however, will plug your GRE scores into a formula that analyse different parts of your application. They might give more credence to the Quant score than your Verbal score, or may consider your overall score and give not much consideration to the individual section score, etc. Nonetheless, aiming for a good score needs to be your goal to get into the top universities.
Topic Wise Practice Questions
All modular resources will be provided by us including topic wise practice material and mock papers. Mock papers are an integral part of a student’s GRE preparation.
