GRE instead of GMAT?

YES. Although the GMAT is tougher than the GRE, a new trend has emerged in B- school admissions – the use of the GRE score instead of the GMAT score.
It’s not that there are no similarities between the two tests. In fact there are more overlaps than differences.
- analytical writing essays are common to both – includes both topics- issue and argument.
- both tests comprise a math and a verbal section
- areas tested in math are more or less the same, though the questions are presented differently.
-reading coprehension is more or less on similar lines.
- language competence is integral to both tests- grammar in the GMAT, diction in the GRE.
