Deciding between GMAT or GRE

Of course, the ultimate determiner is whether the MBA programs to which you’re applying accept both tests or indicate a preference for one.

The GMAT and GRE are, in many ways, nearly identical:

  • Both involve early-high-school-level math.
  • Both rely heavily on reading comprehension.
  • Both require essay-writing at the beginning of the test.

But there are notable differences between the GMAT and GRE:

GRE

Accepted at 1200+ Business Schools worldwide.

Unique Quantitative Question—Quantitative Comparisons.

Unique Verbal Questions—Sentence Equivalence & Text Completion.

Better for “creative/flexible” thinkers.

GMAT

Accepted by all business schools.

Unique Quantitative Question—Data Sufficiency.

Unique Verbal Questions—Sentence Correction & Critical Reasoning.

Better for ”number-crunching” thinkers.
