The GRE, or Graduate Record Examination, is a standardized test that tests on three key skills for graduate schools, namely analytical writing, verbal reasoning, and quantitative reasoning. There are six sections, with a total of 3 hours and 45 minutes of testing time including a ten-minute break after section three. Almost half of all PA schools require or recommend the GRE for applicants.
PA schools have slowly transitioned to requiring the Casper test in the last few years. The Casper test is a situational judgement and awareness exam that tests your judgement in challenging situations. The test looks for skills not evaluated in coursework or on the GRE/PA-CAT including professionalism, empathy, and ethics to name a few. The test has both written and recorded verbal responses.
