The GRE Subject Tests are achievement tests that measure your knowledge of a particular field of study.


Show what you know about a specific subject and graduate schools will take notice. The Subject Tests can help you stand out from other applicants by emphasizing your knowledge and skill level in a specific area.


Each Subject Test is intended for students who have an undergraduate major or extensive background in one of these seven disciplines:


Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology



Literature in English




Note: The GRE Computer Science Test was discontinued following the April 2013 administration. Scores will continue to be reportable for five years.

GRE Subject Test scores are accepted by thousands of graduate schools, including individual departments or divisions within these schools. Although the scores may not be a requirement for admission to a particular program, admissions committees are likely to consider the scores if they are submitted. It's best to contact the specific graduate program you're interested in and inquire about their requirements.
