The graduate record examination or GRE may not be the easiest examination to sit for but as 2014 showed, its popularity in India is increasing by the year.

“During 2014, the number of repeat tests reached an all-time high. Our research showed that nearly one out of four people in India take the GRE test more than once,” Dawn Piacentino, director of communication and services for the GRE Program at ETS, said in a statement.

The standardized test is an admissions requirement for most graduate schools in the US. Created and administered by educational testing service (ETS) in 1949, GRE aims to measure verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, analytical writing, and critical thinking skills.

With the importance of the examination and its high difficulty level, students very often take the test more than once in an attempt to improve their scores. Score select, an option available with GRE tests, offers students up to five years to send graduate schools their best scores. In 2014, the number of people in India taking the GRE for a second time grew by 14 per cent compared to 2013. A new analysis by ETS revealed that most people who took the test a second time did better. More than 60 per cent students who took the GRE revised general test a second time in India scored higher in verbal reasoning measure, while 66 per cent scored higher on the quantitative reasoning measure.
