Thinking about applying for graduate or business school, but unsure whether your Graduate Record Exam revised general test scores are still good? A quick check online or via phone can determine whether the scores are still valid and therefore acceptable to submit to an educational institution. Applicants for graduate and business schools throughout the world take the GRE, a common measure that helps compare qualifications among school candidates. Most universities require the GRE for admission into a graduate program.
