Graduate Admission Tests

Most graduate departments require scores from either a general aptitude test such as the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) General Test, a demonstration of proficiency in a specific field such as a GRE Subject Test, or both.

The Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT) is required almost without exception for applicants to business schools. The Miller Analogy Tests (MAT) may also be required in fields such as education and psychology. These tests are in addition to an English language proficiency examination.

Professional schools such as schools of law, medicine, dentistry, and veterinary medicine have special examinations; see "Specialized Professional Study," for further information.

You should plan to take the appropriate examinations one year prior to when you hope to start your graduate program. Contact your nearest EducationUSA advising center for information, registration, and test preparation materials.
