You also need to know that you need to give a test before. You must take the Graduate Record Examination (GRE General) which is like an SAT exam on steroids for much older people.

Scoring in Preliminary Tests

The GRE keeps changing every year. The announcement stated that “Under the new scoring system, minimum scores of 138 in the verbal and 136 in the quantitative parts are necessary”. Shortlisted candidates are required to take the TOEFL exam after the GRE.

Who Should Apply?

You can apply if you’re a Pakistani student who promises to return home after studying. Eligible for applying are also those who hold a four-year Bachelor’s degree. Alternatively, if you have a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree combination you can also apply. Ph.D. candidates are required to hold a Master’s, M.Phil., or comparable degree (18 years of formal education) from an approved university.
