GRE Test Preparation- Graduate Record Examination

The GRE General Test

The General Test measures analytical writing, verbal, and quantitative skills that have been acquired over a long period of time and that are not related to any specific field of study. The test is scored on a scale of 260 to 340 points, with the essay scores ranging from 1 to 6 points.

Three scores are reported on the GRE revised General Test:

1) Verbal score on a 130 – 170 score scale, in 1-point increments.

2) Quantitative score on a 130 – 170 score scale, in 1-point increments.

3) Analytical Writing score on a 0 – 6 score level, in half-point increments.


The Analytical writing section tests your critical thinking and analytical writing skills. It assesses your ability to articulate and support complex ideas, analyze an argument, and sustain a focused and coherent discussion. It does not assess specific content knowledge. It is scored on a scale of 1 to 6.

Our GRE course is individualized for each student. All students starting the course do a full GRE test. Based on this Diagnostic Test, we develop a study program, which is different for every student. Their weighted scores determine the time to be given to each study module. Thus a student scoring high on the Mathematics section will have to spend less time in attaining a high eventual score of, say, 160+. However, if his Verbal diagnostic score is low, his program will allow more than twice as much time on the Verbal modules.


The program of study for each student is given on his individual Progress Check Report (PCR), which is used throughout his preparation to guide the preparation in an optimal manner. Anees Hussain gives several class lectures on major topics.


Normal preparation consists of 3 classes per week of two hours each, for about 3 months. This program aims to get a 320+ score for each student (out of a maximum total of 340). If a student is free of commitments and can study 5-6 hours a day in addition to classes, or if a student is very quick in picking up, the time of preparation can be reduced to 2 ½ months, or 2 months with double-shift study.
