GRE - Graduate Record Exam

GRE


The Graduate Record Exam (GRE) General Test is used by graduate schools to determine your eligibility for enrollment. Although you won't get into graduate school based on your GRE scores alone, your performance may have significant impact on your chances for enrollment. In addition to increasing your chances of acceptance into graduate school, the higher your scores on the GRE, the greater opportunity you have for financial aid. As you can see, the GRE is a critical piece to your future as a graduate student in psychology.
