The Graduate Record Examination General (GRE) Test measures verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, critical thinking, and analytical writing skills that are not related to any specific field of study. Parliament's GRE Tutoring program equips students with the tools to master each section of the exam. We have comprehensive tutors as well as section-specialists that focus on one key area of the test that students wish to improve on. Your GRE scores provide common measures for comparing the qualifications of applicants and aid in evaluating grades and recommendations. Learn more from the official GRE sponsors at ETS.org.
Our GRE Private Tutoring program offers:
The GRE is administered several times throughout the year. Students may register online at www.gre.org, by phone at 1-800-GRE-CALL, or via mail. To register by mail, students must fill-out an Authorization Voucher Request Form, available at the official GRE website.
The three section of the GRE (Verbal, Quantitative, Analytical Writing) are each scored separately. The Verbal and Quantitative sections are given a curved score between 200-800. The Analytical Writing section is given a score between 0-6. Further, each exam is assigned a percentile rank, demonstrating how a test-taker performance compares to the other examinees.
At the completion of the GRE exam, students are given the option to view their score or cancel their score. Students do not have the option to view their cancelled score.
The GRE is administered as a Computer Adaptive Test. The test content is adjusted to each student's performance. If a student is answering the questions correctly, the questions will get progressively more difficult. If a student answers a question incorrectly, an easier question will follow. Your GRE score accounts for both difficulty of questions asked and raw number answered correctly.
