(Sep 27, 2010) - The GRE® and TOEFL® Test General Test: A Winning Combination for a Strong Application
Mumbai, India (September 27, 2010) —
Representatives of Educational Testing Service (ETS), creator of the TOEFL® test and GRE® General Test, will participate at upcoming educational fairs throughout India to answer questions students may have regarding the two assessments and share the latest program information, resources, and study tools.
The TOEFL test and the GRE General Test are the two most widely accepted assessments used for admission into higher education. The TOEFL test is the most widely accepted English language assessment for undergraduate and graduate admissions. The GRE General Test is the most widely administered admissions test used by graduate and business programs around the world. Together, the GRE and the TOEFL tests are two important pieces of a university application for study abroad.
"Providing students across India access to timely information regarding the TOEFL test and GRE General Test is an important part of ETS's mission of ensuring equity in education around the world," says David Hunt, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at ETS. "We are committed to ensuring that students in India have the information they need regarding these important components of their applications."
The TOEFL test measures the ability of non-native English speakers to use and understand English in a university setting (both undergraduate and graduate levels). It provides a fair and objective assessment of a student's ability to listen, read, write and speak in an academic environment.
The GRE General Test measures verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, critical thinking and analytical writing skills that are needed for success in graduate and business school. In August 2011, ETS will launch the GRE revised General Test worldwide. There are many exciting changes coming with the GRE revised General Test, including an enhanced testing experience and new types of questions that better reflect the skills needed for graduate-level work.
To demonstrate ETS's ongoing commitment to test takers in India, representatives will be attending the following education fairs:
