sub gre info

  • This has become our largest and most active forum because the physics GRE is just one aspect of getting accepted into a graduate physics program.
  • There are applications, personal statements, letters of recommendation, visiting schools, anxiety of waiting for acceptances, deciding between schools, finding out where others are going, etc.

Postby bhaksy » Wed Nov 04, 2009 2:52 am

Hi .. I did my engg from NIT (2003 ) in computer science and currently working with a MNC for quite a long time now . I want to pursue MS+ PhD in Astronomy (mostly observational astronomy). I have a couple of queries :
1. what is the score I wd need for general gre ?
2. what is the good score I wd need for physics gre ?
3. where can I get practice test papers for sub gre for physics ?
4. can u pls guide me thru the syllabus for the sub test?
5. Anything additional I wd need to do that wd increase my probabilities of getting in university ?

Kindly guide me thru .. thanks .

Geez grae, I'm disappointed. This guy came to the forum and re-asked all of the most frequently asked and previously answered questions (WTF is on the GRE? Are there practice exams?) as well as the most personal/unanswerable/retarded questions (What score do I need?- without any other info about his profile or what schools he wants to attend)... all in one post.

In the past, just one of these questions would be enough for us to call him a retard. This guy should be inducted into the hall of shame.

@bhaksy: The answer to question #5 is "English skills". The answer to questions 1-4 can be found on this webpage.

I know, I'm a little ashamed... my zeal for idiot-bashing just isn't what it used to be.

I'm hoping that this guy applies to the schools I do... therefore I won't be the worst application.

guys, why don't you simply lock or delete the topic instead of replying to it?

Because this is a forum for free debate and discussion and nothing here is out of hand. Plus, it's tradition.

Especially to you who are from India, please, can you stop employing abridged (or any other alternative) english language? It is somewhat irksome to have to spend extra seconds to try to understand what you write (I don't refer to the writing content here!). It's sounds to me like some kind of rustic english!

@bhasky: Excluding the fact that you didn't search the forum to find the answers to your questions (only you know the reason for this ...), the fact that you are not coming from the physics scope -as you stated- can truly extenuate your "confused" stance/position. However, try to "circumscribe" your queries and be more specific providing, at the same time, more elements/features about your situation. ... and learn some things about the pranks transpired in this forum :lol:

@administration: I think that the post under the name "the cross on the calendar" is misplaced ...

before that, this is a forum to help people find information easier. you answered one user and confused the future viewers to read ten topics out there for subject gre for nonphysics majors.
