Purpose of the
GRE Subject Tests
The GRE Subject Tests are designed to help graduate
school admission committees and fellowship sponsors
assess the qualifications of applicants in specific fields
of study. The tests also provide you with an assessment
of your own qualifications.
Scores on the tests are intended to indicate knowledge of the subject matter emphasized in many undergraduate programs as preparation for graduate study. Because past achievement is usually a good indicator of

future performance, the scores are helpful in predicting
success in graduate study. Because the tests are standardized, the test scores permit comparison of students from different institutions with different undergraduate
programs. For some Subject Tests, subscores are provided
in addition to the total score; these subscores indicate
the strengths and weaknesses of your preparation, and
they may help you plan future studies.
The GRE Board recommends that scores on the
Subject Tests be considered in conjunction with other
relevant information about applicants. Because numerous factors influence success in graduate school, reliance on a single measure to predict success is not advisable.
Other indicators of competence typically include undergraduate transcripts showing courses taken and grades

earned, letters of recommendation, and GRE General
Test scores. For information about the appropriate use
of GRE scores, write to GRE Program, Educational
Testing Service, Mail Stop 57-L, Princeton, NJ 08541,

Development of the
Subject Tests
Each new edition of a Subject Test is developed by a
committee of examiners composed of professors in the
subject who are on undergraduate and graduate faculties
in different types of institutions and in different regions
of the United States and Canada. In selecting members
for each committee, the GRE Program seeks the advice
of the appropriate professional associations in the subject. The content and scope of each test are specified and
reviewed periodically by the committee of examiners.
Test questions are written by the committee and by
other faculty who are also subject-matter specialists
and by...
