The Graduate Record Exam (GRE) is the entrance test exam for admission to graduate schools. When you are applying to graduate schools check the requirements for application. While many colleges and universities require GRE's as part of the application process, some do not. If the GRE is required, a preparation course is an excellent way to prepare for sitting for this type of standardized test. Boston College is pleased to offer preparation courses on the Chestnut Hill campus. Our experienced and dedicated instructors will work with you to make your experience worthwhile and successful.

The format of the exam consists of three scored sections: Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning and Analytical Writing.The test is approximately 3 hours in length. Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning are scored on a scale of 130 - 170 in 1 point increments. Analytical Writing is scored on a scale of 0 - 6 in half point increments. For more information on the structure of the course please visit .

When deciding which course to enroll in, please consider our 2 different GRE course formats: condensed-intensive weekend courses and weekday courses meeting once per week.
