GRE is important and mostly if you are looking forward to studying any STEM-designated programs and non-Business Graduate Programs in the universities in the United States and Canada. Nevertheless, GRE is accepted by a large number of Business schools world-wide. Thousands of Nepali students appear in the test every year and the biggest problem they have during the test is with the time management.
