The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is a Standardized test that measures verbal, mathematical and analytical skills. It is intended to help the graduate schools (other than business schools) assess the potential of applicants for advanced study. The GRE Test is developed and administered by the US-based "Educational Testing Service" (ETS) under the direction of the Graduate Record Examination Board, a non-profit organization of graduate business schools worldwide.

GRE test is conducted in two categories - General GRE test and Subject GRE test. General GRE test is conducted all-round-the-year. Unlike other exams, you can choose your own date and time for taking the GRE Test. The test is administered in the five-days-a-week (Monday through Friday), twice-a-day. September to December is the high season for GRE Test, so in case you intend to take the test during this period, you need to register very early (say 2-3 months in advance) to get a date of your choice.

Anyone is eligible to appear in GRE General Test. There are no restrictions based on age or qualifications. The test scores are valid for five years, i.e., most universities accept scores up to five years old.
