The Graduate Record Examination is a standardized test that is an admissions requirement for most graduate schools in the United States. The exam aims to measure verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, analytical writing, and critical thinking skills that have been acquired over a long period of time and that are not related to any specific field of study. Many graduate schools in the United States require GRE results as part of the admissions process.
The GRE tests 3 different s sections. Verbal reasoning, Quantitative reasoning and Analytical writing .All theses sections are believed to help candidates prepare for graduate academic life.
Three scores are reported on the GRE revised General Test:
1. A Verbal Reasoning score reported on a 130–170 score scale, in 1-point increments.
2. A Quantitative Reasoning score reported on a 130–170 score scale, in 1-point increments.
3. An Analytical Writing score reported on a 0–6 score scale, in half-point increments.

Departments in universities usually specify the minimum score needed to apply for a particular program and they could even be after scores in a particular section e.g. Set a minimum score for quantitative reasoning for engineering students.
