What is the GRE Subject Test?

Each Subject Test is intended for students who have majored in or have extensive background in that specific area. For some Subject Tests, sub-scores are provided in addition to the total score; these sub-scores indicate the strengths and weaknesses of individual student's preparation, and they may help students plan their future studies.

  • Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology
  • Literature in English
  • Biology
  • Mathematics
  • Chemistry
  • Physics
  • Computer Science

Who should take the GRE?

Whether you are a student planning to take a GRE® test, a faculty member using GRE® scores, or if you are simply interested in research on GRE® tests, go to http://www.ets.org/gre/. This site contains all the information you will need.

Prospective graduate applicants take the General Test and/or the Subject Tests. GRE® test scores are used by admissions or fellowship panels to supplement undergraduate records and other qualifications for graduate study. The scores provide common measures for comparing the qualifications of applicants and aid in evaluating grades and recommendations.

Any accredited graduate, business or professional school, or any department or division within a school, may require or recommend that its applicants take the General Test, a Subject Test, or both. If approved by the GRE® Board, a non-accredited institution can also receive test takers' scores
