Applying to Graduate School
  Admissions Test Scores

Each institution has their own requirements regarding admission tests requirements, and this information can be found on the school’s website. Information about and registration for the GRE, GMAT and LSAT are now all electronic. It is advisable to spend some time going over individual questions and taking more than one practice test. Test preparation can be done with practice tests online, and preparatory classes, such as the Stanley Kaplan, may be helpful, though costly.

Most general graduate schools require the General Test, and many require the Subject Test. The General Test contains a verbal, quantitative and analytical section. The Subject Test measures knowledge of a particular subject matter. The General and Subject Tests can be taken on the same day or on different days.

The MAT uses verbal analogies to test reasoning ability. Some graduates schools will accept the MAT in lieu of the GRE.
