Hello,

I have been planning to pursue Masters from abroad. But I require some guidance over which exam would be better. I am more interested in MS in finance and if that doesn't suit my profile next is management in marketing. I don't have much knowledge on the career options too. So I wanted to ask which exam would be better GRE or GMAT. I am a working professional with 15 months work experience. I have done my bachelors in construction​, technology and management. Need some guidance.

First find out whether your target schools accept both scores. Here are some posts that will explain you the difference between the two exams and how to choose which is better for you.

You not to shortlist some schools and check their admission requirements. Usually, GRE is preferred for Masters. GMAT is for MBA or MIM studies. I have given both the exams. Please inbox me your questions related to prep, if any.

Those blogs mentioned by VeritasPrepKarishma contains valuable information. You can read that as well to get more insight.

Below is my suggestion.

Currently, Many B-schools accepts GRE. So it shouldn't bother which you should take. But do the following.

Since you are new to both GMAT and GRE.

1. Take a mock test on both GMAT and GRE.
2. See where you stand.
3. Check GMAT club and GREclub for good score ranges for the program you are applying.
4. Decide on which test shows your strengths more.
5. Prepare for that test religiously for 3 months(Duration for Prep may vary based on your target score and current level).
