GRE or GMAT?
Educational Testing Service (ETS) commented last week that more than 1,000 plus business schools worldwide now accept MBA applicants’ scores from the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) instead of the GMAT.It further ignites the war between the GMAt and GRE.
Both GMAT and GRE have their fans.GRE have more female fan following so colleges which are looking for female students can allow the GRE.GMAT is still hot favorite for the students which plan for MBA.Reason behind it is colleges still prefer GMAT scores as its structure is better for business needs.where ever students which are opting for other courses like master of finance etc can opt for GRE.
There are few good colleges which accept GRE scores now including the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Indiana University, Arizona State University, the University of Massachusetts Amherst, Pepperdine University, and George Washington University.
GMAT costs $260, while the GRE is $175.
The GMAT assesses test takers in Verbal, Quantitative and Analytical Writing and Integrated Reasoning sections, while the GRE tests in three main areas, including Analytical Thinking, Quantitative Reasoning and Verbal Reasoning.
Students are opting for GMAT or GRE just based on their initial impression.Students should select the colleges first and inquire that colleges they are targeting accept GMAT or GRE scores then they should choose the exam.
