Question Description
I have done my BE in IT in 2006. Since then, Iíve been in the Software Industry. Now, I want to do MS in IT. So, do I need to take both GRE General and GRE Subject Tests? Or, only the GRE Subject test will do?

Also, will you please let me know when both of these tests are conducted and what is the cutoff for the leading universities/colleges there?

Thanks in advance,


After completing your Bachelors in IT, to do MS in IT, it is not the subject test you need to take. Instead, you must take only GRE General Test. GRE Subject Test is a test of some particular subjects only. In GRE Subject Test, you can choose to be tested for one or more subjects. In contrast, in GRE General Test, youíll be taking test for English and Mathematics. At most of the universities, taking a GRE General Test will be sufficient for getting an admission but some universities may have exceptions and may ask you to take GRE Subject Test for some particular subject. However, this doesnít happen most of the time.
