GRE Course Work
Total course work for GRE is of 12 weeks, which is divided into two parts as follows:
First 10 weeks are dedicated to following
Step 1: Understand Exam Structure
Firstly, many students in their 15 or 16 years of education are so habitual to exam structures with fixed syllabus that they try to co-relate Indian exams with GRE, which is unfair on many levels. Let’s just say there is no syllabus of GRE and ETS is more interested in testing your critical reasoning than memory. Secondly, GRE is NOT ENGLISH + MATHS exam as it is often labeled by many Indian students. So, our trainers help you to know the exam structure and reasons to why do they structure the exam in such a manner.
Step 2: Get familiar with Question Patterns
Once you are aware of the exam structure, and convinced that there are a lot of differences in the regular Indian exams and GRE we need to understand how is GRE different in question patterns? GRE is computer based, adaptive test, in other words, based on you performance in previous section, next section is designed. Our trainers train you on questions that test understanding of the concepts, their applications, deductions and importantly, decision making in limited period of the time.
Step 3: Learn the Strategies
Now once you are aware of exam structure and question patterns, our trainers help you understand the GRE strategies to tackle all three sections, that is, Analytical Writing, Quantitative Reasoning and Verbal Reasoning.
Step 4: Important Practice Sessions
With a vast experience of teaching GRE, we understand that as there is no syllabus, you need to form right habits of tackling questions. These habits can be formed only by practice. We arrange practice sessions for our students during lectures itself. We aim that students solve each type of question 5 times in front of the trainer and the trainer gives a feedback on each attempt so that students improve with each attempt. These feedbacks help students to evaluate their preparation realistically and plan accordingly.

Step 5: Appear for 5 Mock tests
In order to ensure that you are well acquainted with the actual test patterns, we try to replicate the actual test as much as possible. These tests give you a correct analysis of your skills and approximate a range of score for on your actual GRE. Most importantly, based on the student’s analysis we define a practice schedule which help to boost the preparation.
