Prepare for the GRE
GRE Class Room Integrated Batch Program
The GRE Class Room Integrated Batch Program covers each topic in five broad stages :
- Analysis of Student Performance – The program commences with a Benchmarking Test taken by the student at home or our learning center. The reported performance of the student is assessed and an Analysis of Test Performance Report is prepared by teachers and is discussed with the student.
The GRE is an aptitude test, and you would already be good or weak at a lot of knowledge concepts, question solving procedures, test taking techniques and test dynamics along with a certain sharpness of brain being tested on this exam. So the first step is to get a realistic idea of your present status by subjecting you to a Benchmarking Test. This Benchmarking Test is exactly on the lines of the real GRE and has the same standard of questions. Attempting the Benchmarking Test helps in giving the right direction to your preparation.
- Benchmarking and Learning Stage – As the first part of the class room program, you attend classes where your teacher teaches you all the topics that appear on the GRE. Your teacher will teach you each and every subtopic and concept tested on the GRE. After teaching of concepts, your teacher will subject you concept-testing to identify any concepts that you may not have understood. Then your teacher will attempt some real GRE questions to make you understand how to apply the learnt concepts to solve questions. As a third step your teacher will give you a class-exercise with real GRE questions, from the latest edition of The Official Guide to the GRE, as a final test of your competence and identify any loopholes that may still be present and we plug them up.
Homework is assigned at the end of each class. Homework comprises of attempting the taught topics in a homework-workbook topic-wise. This workbook comprehensively covers all concepts and strategies needed to excel in the GRE. It would have concepts in three formats
- Written concepts to be learnt
- Concepts with blanks to be filled up to check your conceptual knowledge.
- Objective questions to be attempted to check your ability to recall relevant concepts and apply then to solve actual questions .
- Concept Clarity Stage – After you have completed a certain module of the workbook, you submit the workbook so that it can be manually checked by your teacher. If you make a certain mistake or if you do not attempt a certain item, this indicates you need clarity on that concept and you can arrange a doubt session with your teacher. This step will ensure that you master each and every concept and strategies needed to excel in the GRE.
- Concept Application Stage – Last step is to apply your knowledge on sets of question banks. These question banks have actual questions from the official guides and papers released by ETS over the last twenty years. Questions on which you mark a wrong answer, questions that you cannot attempt, or questions on which you have a confusion and need more clarity or a faster way to attempt can be cleared with your teacher.
- Simulated Exam Stage – During the last stage you attempt Simulated / Mock Exams to understand, learn and excel in test dynamics.
Even when a student has mastered all concepts and knows how to attempt every question that can possibly appear on the exam, he may still not be able to get a 100% score on the actual exam because of issues such as test anxiety, lower attention span or stamina to apply brains for a four hour long exam. Taking a series of Mock Exams ensures that a student can identify the problems which are stopping him from achieving a perfect score. Each of these Mock Exams are to be followed by analyzing the exam performance and keeping the teacher in the loop during this stage.
- Classes are conducted twice a week for weekend batches and thrice a week for weekday batches.
