Study in Ivy League colleges with a perfect GRE Score

GRE Coaching

Almost every year, as admissions season comes upon us, the most often asked question among students, who wish to study in USA is what is the ideal GRE score for getting into the best universities in America.

What makes a GRE score good will depend mostly on what the student expects from his college education? Is he planning to study abroad in the average tier 2 colleges or has he set his aims high on the Ivy League.

Moreover, the perception of what can be considered as a good score for GRE will change from university to university, with some universities choosing only students who have scored in the top 90th percentile.

Students need to put in extra effort in their GRE Coaching to achieve the scores that aspire to achieve.

The perception of what is a good GRE score will also be influenced by the expectations of the student. A student who is aiming to study in a community college or a city university, that features much lower in the rankings will definitely be content with a score that falls lower in the percentile rankings, whereas a student who is aiming for a top college such as Harvard or MIT will have a very high expectation out of his GRE score.

Frequently Asked Questions

The common notion is that foreign universities are expensive, although with scholarships this is an exaggerated issue. What many fail to consider are time and effort. Studying in an Indian college leads to a lower average salary than earned by our western counterparts. This salary sets the tone for all future promotions since companies often look at your previous salaries during compensation appraisals. Additionally, most senior positions tend to be scooped up by individuals who have an international outlook through global exposure.  Finally, studying in a foreign country is an incredible learning experience helping students get a better academic as well as soft skill development.

Canada has been one of the market leaders in education for decades. However, what currently sets Maple Country apart is immigration. Canada is wholeheartedly inviting students to study in their universities to fill job vacancies that are always growing in the country. Students who study in Canada (especially a Master’s Degree) are practically assured of a Permanent Residency Visa.

A good score doesn’t automatically qualify a candidate for a scholarship, however, it is one of the primary factors that the admissions department looks for in a scholarship application. There are other attributes such as a candidate’s academics, extra-curricular, financial background, and application essays (SOPs).

We get this question a lot. Many candidates know which career path they want to take, but are at a loss for how to take that journey. Understanding the job role and the industry that you want to get into is the first step to picking the right university.

Carefully consider the immigration options of the country that the university that you are considering is in. This is more important when you intend to stay back in the country after the completion of your course.

Also, review the placement history of the university as well.

The first step is to list your preferences. By listing your preferences and strengths, describe your course of preference. Extensive research on the modules, software and its length for your preferred subject is necessary.
