TOEFL is an English language proficiency test that is used by universities abroad to check your ability to read, write and understand English. GRE on the other hand is an aptitude test to check your academic ability. 

While both these tests are important factors to get admission abroad, they are definitely not the only deciding parameters in your profile. Adcoms look for candidates with an overall holistic profile. 


If you are wondering, the other factors that you can consider are:


1. Bachelor’s GPA


2. Work Experience


3. Extracurricullars

 

If you still feel confused, I suggest you directly get in touch with Study Abroad Experts here. They will analyse your profile and will suggest you the best aspects of your profile that you should highlight. They can also help you in shortlisting the best universities based on your profile.


Hope this helps!

In the U.S., admissions requirements can vary significantly across universities and programs. For non-native English speakers, demonstrating proficiency in English is typically essential. Most institutions require a standardized test like the TOEFL or IELTS. The minimum score required can differ, so it's important to verify the specific requirements of each university or program.

Regarding the GRE it is frequently a prerequisite for graduate programs, particularly in fields such as engineering, sciences, and social sciences. However, there has been a trend towards more flexible admission policies, with some programs waiving the GRE requirement under certain conditions, such as having a high undergraduate GPA or substantial work experience.

Always confirm the testing requirements by consulting the program’s website or contacting the admissions department directly. Understanding these requirements well in advance will give you ample time to prepare and fulfill any testing obligations, ensuring a smooth application process.
