how much marks we want in GRE to take admission in USA

Ronak Gala Student Expert 6th Nov, 2019

To get some top universities of USA, you need to score almost 320+ / 340 in GRE. Because getting 260 marks in GRE is almost fixed since maximum people even the unprepared ones pass the 260 marks barrier. And there is a huge competition after 320 for a single single mark. So keep your targets high and work well for it.

Best wishes. Thank-you.
