GRE Statistics

## Statistics

An Applicant for MEMS program is expected to possess a basic foundation in Economics or related discipline, such as Mathematics, Statistics, Econometrics or Information Technology. When allocating places, particular weight will be given to the Applicant's aptitude for quantitatively-oriented economic analysis.

In addition, an Applicant is required to take the GRE (Graduate Records Examinations) Revised General Test and to submit the results with his/her application.

The GRE Revised General Test is one of the most widely accepted admission tests worldwide. It designed to measure abilities to undertake graduate studies, therefore helps to assess applicants in a standardized way. GRE Test consists of verbal, quantitative and analytical writing parts and is usually held at the special test centers.

Our ETS institutional code for GRE is 8167.

In the table below you can find the statistics of GRE Test results received by the accepted applicants during past years.

## Average GRE General Test scores:

 Year of Intake GRE quantitative (var) GRE analytical (var) 2013 163 (17,7) 3,62 (0,3) 2012 160 3,87 2011 767 3,6 2010 772 3,7 2009 753 3,65 2008 770 4,0 2007 765 4,06 2006 761 4,19

Particular weight was given to students' quantitative abilities. The average student accepted to MEMS program scored in the 81st percentile of the quantitative section of GRE out of all students who took the test. It should be noted, however, that the GRE is only one tool we use for assessing the quality of applications.

## Conversion Table

In August 2011, the GRE revised General Test replaced the GRE® General Test. One of the main changes was an introduction of the new score range for verbal and quantitave parts. You can find the conversion table (only till 700 points) for quantitative reasoning below (based on the performance of all examinees who tested between July, 1 2007 and June, 30 2010).
