Well, next Friday I'm going to take the GRE (General Record Examination) test. It is almost sure that I'm not going to have a high score, mainly due to the lack of specific american vocabulary. The verbal section is going me mad. So that I want to know what does the GRE exactly mean: -Is it a requirement for all students who apply to a graduate school, including both american and international students? -If so, do the american students take the same test than international ones?
