Giving up on GMAT and Moving on to GRE?? [#permalink]  28 Feb 2019, 04:13
Hi
For master application I need GMAT 600 or GRE Quantitative Reasoning Section 152
Currently my GMAT score is 590 v42 V28 and I am considering to take GRE instead of GMAT.

Thank you so much

Hi,

The quant is easier in GRE but the topics covered are the almost the same in two, while the verbal is a bit difficult in GRE due to the vocabulary involved.
So, the choice would depend on the state you are and what exactly you are looking from GMAT or GRE- a phD or MBA.

Chetan is perfectly right.

However, it is true that between the two test Gmat is the tougher. Nonetheless, GRE increased a lot its difficulty.

The hardest quant question is always around the GMAT 700 level ones, which is not a joke to nail them. In my opinion, the verbal part is not only a question of vocabulary.

The questions are really daunting sometimes. For me the verbal part is more difficult than that on the GMAT:

RC and CR in both tests are the same. So, difficult.

SE is harsh for the vocabulary AND the meaning of the sentence often is not an easy way to go.

TC could be a real nightmare and time-consuming.

Here, you do have all our support and tons of questions to practice.

Hi SophieSophie,

So, you are only 10 points away from your GMAT score goal. Why not continue studying? I’m happy to provide some further advice, but I’d like to learn some more about what is going on with your GMAT.

-- For how long have you been studying?

-- What resources have you been using for your prep?

-- What are the score breakdowns of your official GMAT practice exams?

Good luck!
