About GRE

  1. Jul 28, 2010 #1
    Hi, I'm a chinese undergraduated student. As I wanna apply to some American universities for PhD, I took GRE general test these days. However, I have no concept with what they wanna know about applicants through their scores? And how professors will realize applicants with their scores? I'm not sure why physics professors hope that their graduated students can recognize those complex words. Could anyone tell me? I'll be very grateful for your help.

    They don't. The verbal part of the test is not very important. You are supposed to do well on the mathematical part, so that professors know that you're good at math.
