About GRE Subject Tests
The GRE® Subject Tests are achievement tests that measure your knowledge of a particular field of study.
Show what you know about a specific subject and graduate schools will take notice. The Subject Tests can help you stand out from other applicants by emphasizing your knowledge and skill level in a specific area.
Each Subject Test is intended for students who have an undergraduate major or extensive background in one of these seven disciplines:
- Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology
- Literature in English
