Answer: 1200 would be an ideal score. Make sure you do particularly well in the verbal section
2. Hema:  Is it a gud score enough to get a scholarship???
Answer:
Usually if you get a perfect score...u will in all probability get a scholarship. In many cases 1400+ scores manage to get some sort of scholarhsip - if you have relevant education or experience then that also helps

3. Utkarsh: I M IN BIRLA INST. OF TECH. , MESRA PURSUING B.E. IN BIOTECH.......I M GOING IN SECOND YR..........PLZ HELP ME OUT HOW TO START PREPARATION FOR GRE AS EARLY AS E AS POSSIBLE.........I M TOTALLY UNAWARE OF EXAM PATTERN AND TYPE OF QUESTION ASKED........ALSO LET ME KNOW THE BOOKS AND LINKS FOR SAME.........THKS
Answer by another poster: You have lots of time to complete gre...but make it sure dat u r done wit it by da end of 3-2...as u r an engg student, u don need to worry about quant...even if u dunno anythng u can finish quant in 1 to 2 months time...if u r aimig high,u need to crack verbal...daily do wrdlists from barrons...just one wrdlist is enough...practice r.c's and analogies...
If its too early means u will be writing gre nxt june or july and many ppl r saying dat gre pattern will be changing by nxt aug...but the key areas wont change mostly...wat i heard is dey will be giving more of r.c's and analogies dan antonyms...

4. Yingy:  I got 800 for Quantitative score, 320 for Verbal score. How can I improve my verbal skill? Do you have any Games like hang man so that i can download to develop my skill.
Answer: Hi Yingy, there are some softwares that you can use to improve your verbal skills. One is called vocaboly and the other is wordhacker. After using the two, you can take online tests of your verbal skills and also download and other gre prep material from greghost.blogspot.com

5. Anon: Hey guys....jst want to knw tht u applied thrugh ny consultancy? or directly ur self?
.whch option is best? i want to apply for PhD..GRE on 30th.. 
Answer by another poster: Its always more advisable to do ur own research n apply.... consultancy will cost u a fortune , plus, hw can u rely on them to make your decision? Ask seniors, post ur doubts here... this community helped me a lot!!

Hey please help me i need GRE Big Book quant part..... my exam is in couple of weeks..... please mail me to usha_mohini@yahoo.co.in.........
Thanx in advance........

I am almost 50 and haven't been in school since I grad'd college in 1983. However I read extensively and have a large vocab. Beyond reading your blog completely, do you have any other tips? Can I go ahead and take the sample test you offer and see where I stand? I have always tested well.....

Sarthak said...

Dear anonymous above, do remmeber that vocab is not the only criteria to pass the gre with a good score. You will need to have good mathematical skills as well. Its necessary to practise the type of maths questions that you will get in the gre.

Do take the online practice tests on number2.com and hwne you're ready test yourself on the gre powerprep software. If you;re scoring consitently well on the software, that means you're ready fo the test

Mayuri said...

Hi all!!

I hope to find the answer to my question on this page.

I am applying to give GRE before aug 2011,Is it possible that i give the exam this time,but would be able to apply for the fall session of the year 2012(since i might be late to allpy for the paper this time,somewhere around oct, and till then the procedure of application for fall 2011 would be over).Is there a provision in gre which allows us to apply to the admission sessions of one year later programs?

Sarthak said...

Dear Mayuri,

Your GRE test score is valid till the next 5 years from the day you take the exam. So you can apply to US universitites any time during those 5 years for whaetevr course you want to study!

Mayuri said...

@sarthak

First of all,let me thank you for the reply.

I know that the GRE score is valid for 5 years, but what i intended to ask was a bit different.

ETS sends our scores to any 5 universities for free, and this we have to specify when we apply for the test.But since i shall not be applying for the universities for fall 2011, can i still specify in the form : university X, session FALL, year YYYY?

If not then, I would be losing the opportunity for applying for free to any 5 universities,since i will not be taking admission for the immediate 2011 sessions :(

Cheers to u
thank u

Sarthak said...

You're most welcome Mayuro :)

Well, as far a I know you can apply only for the following session to those 5 universities at the time of your GRE exam. But its ok you shouldn't mind spending some money on couriering your applications to the US when you plan to do so...it would be peanuts compared to your tuition fee.

Mayuri said...

@sarthak

Cheers to this blog and to u for clearing my doubt.

Thank you
Keep going :)

Another interesting thing about the GRE. Most colleges don't care! When I called one of my prosepective graduate schools they said that the GRE is usually the last thing they look at when deciding whether or not to accept you
