Online GRE Tutoring at Enhanced Prep

The GRE, or Graduate Record Examination, is a common graduate college entrance exam used to assess whether or not students possess sufficient levels of knowledge to begin graduate-level studies. Students must select either the general GRE, comprised of subtests in quantitative reasoning, verbal reasoning, and analytical writing, or one of four subject tests in mathematics, chemistry, physics, or psychology. Which of these exams students need is based upon the graduate studies that they wish to pursue, with the general GRE often serving as a test for a broader range of programs, while the subject tests are most helpful for admission to programs in those specific disciplines.
When tutoring students preparing for the GRE, our tutoring team is able to focus on the student’s most immediate needs by listening to their input and helping them accordingly to succeed on test day. Our students’ outcomes speak for themselves, with 95% of our students getting into their dream schools. Once you’re ready to begin your journey toward success on the GRE, reach out to Enhanced Prep and kickstart your graduate career with us.

The GRE Exams

All of the GRE exams are graduate program admissions tests, and therefore are taken by candidates who wish to gain admission into them, so students usually take the exam near the end of their undergraduate degree program or after graduation. On the GRE General Test, students will need skills in understanding the meaning of texts on multiple levels and analyzing written passages, using basic skills of algebra, geometry, and other branches of mathematics, and constructing effective arguments and communicating complex ideas in writing. On a subject test, however, a deeper knowledge of the test’s subject is required to demonstrate the readiness of students to enter into concentrated graduate study programs in those areas.
The general GRE is the most commonly seen, being comprised of three subtests: verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, and analytical writing. The verbal and quantitative reasoning subtests are comprised of 40 selected-response questions each, with a total of 60 minutes given for the former and 70 for the latter. The analytical writing subtest sees two tasks, one being to analyze an issue and another being to analyze an argument, with both being answered as written responses within a total period of 60 minutes. GRE Subject Tests are offered in chemistry, mathematics, physics, and psychology. These exams consist of 130 questions, 66 questions, 100 questions, and 205 questions, respectively, with all questions being selected-response and each of the tests being completed within a time limit of two hours and 50 minutes. Given the rigorous nature of the exam process, online GRE tutors can help students prepare by honing their test-taking skills.

Upcoming Changes to the GRE

Starting from September 22, 2023, the GRE® General Test is changing! The new version of the test will be just under 2 hours, as opposed to the current version which is almost 4 hours long. The shortening of the test will largely be the result of 46 fewer Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning questions, as well as one fewer analytical writing essay. There will be no change to the general content covered or question formats. These changes will benefit test-takers by providing a more efficient process, leading to faster score reporting and allowing applicants to submit their applications sooner.

Frequently Asked Questions

How should I prepare for the GRE?

As with any graduate admissions exam, the breadth of information that students are tasked with understanding and applying on any of the GRE tests will be wide. This means that the most important factor when preparing for a GRE test is to begin these preparations as early as possible. In addition to this, relying on the help of GRE tutors at Enhanced Prep can help to elevate students even further, as our tutors are able to determine a unique approach that will best benefit each student. Our tutors can point students toward the content they need to focus on and the test-taking strategies that will benefit them the most.

Are the GRE tests hard?

Because the GRE tests are intended to assess whether or not candidates possess sufficient knowledge for entry into graduate programs, the material tested on them will range all the way through undergraduate-level coursework. However, the specificity and level of difficulty of this material can be even higher on the GRE subject tests, where more advanced topics such as calculus, physical and organic chemistry, relativity and quantum mechanics, and clinical psychology will be encountered. By creating a unique game plan for every student that comes to us, our tutors are able to ensure that everyone can reach their academic goals. Our student feedback is a testament to this, with each family that we help referring an average of 3 students.

How many times can I retake the GRE?

All of the GRE exams can be retaken as many times as are needed, but the policies for retaking them differ. For the GRE general test, students may retake the test no more than once every 21 days, and no more than 5 times within a 12-month rolling period. For the subject test, however, students may simply retake the test as it is offered, which will typically occur 3 times annually. It is recommended that students use the time in between attempts to study and improve in areas where they underperformed on previous attempts. Using the GRE help offered by Enhanced Prep, every student can give themselves the best possible chance of succeeding on their next attempt.

What can I bring to the GRE?

When attending any of the GRE tests, the most important thing that all students must have with them is a valid, government-issued photo ID. For any of the subject tests, students must also bring with them a verification email that is sent upon registration to confirm their testing time and date as well as the test that they selected. For those testing virtually from home, a mirror or smartphone with a camera is also required to show their computer screen to the test proctor before the assessment begins. All other personal items are not allowed in the testing space, and cannot be accessed during any breaks that are provided. The only exceptions to this are refreshments and medications.

How is the GRE scored?

The GRE general test yields three separate scores for the three subtests that it includes. The verbal and quantitative reasoning sections receive scaled scores from 130 to 170, while the analytical writing measure is scored from 0 to 6. While there is no universal passing score for this exam, there are average scores attained on each subtest for different graduate programs. As such, scores should be near or above these values in order to be competitive for admission into these programs. Each of the GRE subject tests, however, is scored from 220 to 990, with subscores from the subtests that comprise them being ranged from 20 to 99. As with the general test, there is no passing score, but rather average scores that students should strive to be around or above in order to gain admission into their desired programs of study.
