Students who desire to study for mba abroad for higher studies and GRE & GMAT is one of the popular courses abroad. Prospective MBA students have the choice to submit either GMAT or GRE scores for their business school application.

GRE General Info :

The most significant difference between the GMAT and the GRE is that the GRE is used as part of admissions for a wide variety of graduate school programs, while the GMAT is only used to apply to business schools.

The GRE has three major sections: Analytical Writing, Quantitative Reasoning, and Verbal Reasoning.

Analytical Writing consists of two essays, each of which you’ll be given 30 minutes to write.

Quantitative Reasoning and Analytical Reasoning each have two 20-question sections, for a total of 80 multiple-choice questions.

The GRE will also include one 20-question research section which won’t be included as part of your score. This will be either a Verbal or Quantitative section, but you won’t know which section is the research section.

 

GMAT General Info :

The Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT) is a standardized computer adaptive test (CAT), required as part of the application process to many MBA programs around the world. The GMAT takes almost 4 hours to complete.

Officially, the GMAT measures skills in the fields of English, Mathematics, and analytical writing. Actually, the GMAT tests some basic English and math skills, but what it mostly tests is how well you use specific techniques and strategies for best performance on the GMAT.
