The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is a standardized test that is an admissions requirement for most graduate schools in the United States. The exam aims to measure verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, analytical writing, and critical thinking skills that have been acquired over a long period of time and that are not related to any specific field of study. The GRE General Test is offered as a computer-based exam.
In the graduate school admissions process, the level of emphasis that is placed upon GRE scores varies widely between schools and between departments within schools. The importance of a GRE score can range from being a mere admission formality to an important selection factor.
If you are serious about joining the military, then get serious about taking the Armed Services Vocation Aptitude Battery (ASVAB).

Scores from four of the tests – Word Knowledge (WK), Paragraph Comprehension (PC), Arithmetic Reasoning (AR), and Mathematics Knowledge (MK) – are combined to compute the score on what is referred to as the Armed Forces Qualification Test (AFQT). Scores on the AFQT are used to determine eligibility for enlistment in the Army, Navy, Air Force, or Marine Corps.
