The Graduate Record Exam (GRE) is a standardized test that students take in preparation of graduate school. Most veterinary schools require GRE scores, and some may require the Biology GRE. Some schools also accept the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT).
The GRE is approximately three hours and forty-five minutes long and consists of three parts:
- Verbal Reasoning
- Quantitative Reasoning
- Analytical Writing
The GRE is offered throughout the year, and Pre-Vet students are encouraged to take the exam a year before applying to veterinary school, ideally in the winter or spring. However, you should ultimately take the GRE when you are ready!
While it varies from person to person, plan on studying between 50-200 hours before taking the test. For more information on the GRE visit:
