ALTERNATIVE FACTORS TO RELY ON IN PLACE OF GRE - 


1. ACADEMIC PERFORMANCE- The university considers academic performance. Among the same, one’s undergraduate degree holds the most importance. Make sure you achieve good scores in your undergraduate degree and have a history of the good academic record.


2. LETTER OF RECOMMENDATION - a good number of LORs ensure the university your commitment to delivering what you are promising.


3. CV - A lot of universities abroad require prior working experience. It would help if you worked on some projects or interned according to the major you want to pursue abroad.


4. STATEMENT OF PURPOSE- A well-written SOP is a must, as it speaks about one’s aspirations and helps the committee understand the value one brings to the university. In addition to that, an SOP also summarizes one’s personality as a whole.
