Duolingo is an English proficiency test, it is accepted by some universities as an alternative to traditional English proficiency tests such as TOEFL or IELTS. However, acceptance of Duolingo as a test of English proficiency varies by university and program. 

It depends on the specific graduate program and university you are applying to. Some programs and universities may accept both GRE and Duolingo scores as part of the application process, while others may not accept Duolingo scores at all. 

There are a few counties that might accept Duolingo scores like the USA, the UK, Australia, New Zealand, China, Qatar, Japan, Thailand, Ireland, and European countries (Spain, Germany, Austria, France, Hungary, Italy). There are over 100 universities in the USA that accept DET scores. A score between 115-120 is considered as good for admission into the universities.

As for the GRE, More than 90 countries currently accept the GRE exam. Some of the top countries are the USA, UK, Australia, China, Denmark, France, Germany, Japan, Ireland, Czech Republic, Hong Kong, India, Sweden, etc. The GRE's point scale runs from 260 to 340. High GRE test scores are essential for admission into the best universities abroad, although they might not be the only criteria. A GRE score of 310 or above is generally highly regarded by universities.

I hope this answers your question. Feel free to ask any questions or leave a comment below if you have any further queries.

Many universities in the UK and other European countries, like Germany and France, are now more open to a range of different test scores. I had a GRE and a Duolingo English Test, and I was able to use them for my business school applications. I have friends who used the same for their courses in other social sciences and arts programs. However, I would suggest that you check the individual course and country requirements. For example, I know that in the UK, many top universities are now accepting the Duolingo test, but in other countries, the TOEFL or IELTS is still the main one. So, it's a little different for each place.

 I used both GRE and Duolingo scores for my applications. U.S. and some European universities, like in Germany and the Netherlands, were welcoming with this combo. But it's not the same everywhere. UK universities I applied to mostly preferred IELTS or TOEFL, though some did accept Duolingo. It's a bit mixed, so it's smart to check each university's policy. But hey, there's a real chance for students to use Duolingo and GRE scores, especially in the U.S. and some parts of Europe.

Yes, you can definitely use Duolingo and GRE scores for your admissions process. The Duolingo English Test has gained popularity due to its convenience and acceptance by many institutions worldwide. It's an excellent alternative to TOEFL and IELTS, especially if you're looking for a more flexible and cost-effective option. 

For graduate programs, the GRE is a staple, especially in the United States. It assesses your readiness for advanced study with a focus on quantitative reasoning, verbal reasoning, and analytical writing. Here's how you can use these scores effectively: 

  • Research Programs: Begin by researching the programs and universities that accept Duolingo and GRE scores. Most universities in the US, Canada, and even some in Europe and Asia now recognize Duolingo. GRE is almost universally accepted for graduate admissions. 
  • Understand the Requirements: Different programs have different score requirements. For Duolingo, a score of 100 or above is generally acceptable, but top programs might require higher. For the GRE, aim for a balanced score with strong quantitative and verbal sections, typically above 300. 
  • Preparation and Timing: Prepare well in advance for both tests. The Duolingo test can be taken online and results are quick, but the GRE might need more preparation time. Ensure you schedule your tests so that you can meet the application deadlines, usually by December or January for fall admissions. 

Top universities like Yale, NYU, and MIT accept Duolingo scores. Make sure to verify each institution's specific requirements and deadlines to streamline your application process. Utilize online resources and practice tests to achieve the best possible scores. 

Good luck with your applications!
