The GRE (Graduate Record Examinations) is one of the standardized tests used as an entrance exam for admission to graduate and postgraduate programs at foreign universities. It is primarily used for admission to MBA programs (Masters of Business Administration) and law schools in the United States, but also for admission to many international study programs. The exam assesses your verbal and quantitative skills, critical thinking abilities, as well as analytical writing and reading skills. Arte et Marte provides you with quality and comprehensive preparation for a successful application and GRE exam through preparatory courses that include free preparatory materials (books and multimedia) for all students. During the course, we use real and up-to-date materials, giving participants the opportunity to fully familiarize themselves with all the specifics of the exam.
GRE (Graduate Record Examinations) is one of the standardized tests used as an entrance exam for admission to graduate and postgraduate studies at foreign universities and for admission to many international study programs.
There are two types of GRE tests:
GRE General test consisting of essay writing (Analytical Writing), verbal reasoning (Verbal Reasoning), and quantitative reasoning (Quantitative Reasoning). The GRE revised General test taken in Croatia is “computer-based.” It is taken on a computer at the official GRE revised General test administration center. This test takes 4 hours with one 10-minute break after the 3rd section. There is a regular 1-minute break after each of the other sections.
GRE Subject test is required for admission to graduate and doctoral programs in the United States. The additional GRE Subject tests that a student must take depend on the program they are applying to. GRE Subject scores give you an advantage and additional points in the evaluation and assessment of your application for admission. There are 8 types of GRE Subject tests: Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, English Literature, Mathematics, Physics, and Psychology. GRE Subject tests are “paper-based” and are taken on paper at the official GRE Subject test administration center.

What does the GRE test preparation look like at Arte et Marte?
For successful exam preparation, we recommend timely attendance of preparatory courses for the specific exam. This allows you to gain experience in taking the test and better prepare for it. To achieve your desired results, it’s essential to understand and master the specific techniques for this exam, which can help you score higher.
Arte et Marte Approach
We emphasize the measurability of progress. Before enrolling in the course, we recommend taking a practice entrance exam and, at the course’s conclusion, an exit exam (both included in the course fee). Further group or individual work will focus on improving areas where you achieved lower results.
Arte et Marte GRE Course
Each GRE course at Arte et Marte is divided into two parts: an English section (including preparation for Analytical Writing and Reasoning) and a mathematical section (Quantitative Reasoning). Participants can choose both or just one part of the preparation. The ratio of hours dedicated to the English or mathematical section is flexible and is defined in consultation with the participant based on the results of the entrance test. The course includes improving skills tested on the GRE exam and mastering specific techniques for taking the test. Some of these skills involve recognizing specific information.
Arte et Marte Principles and Methods
In our teaching and counseling approach, we employ tried-and-true principles and methods that we have adopted and perfected through years of pedagogical and methodological work. Group classes are organized in small groups at times agreed upon. Our professors maintain an individualized approach to each participant, even in group sessions. We believe it is our duty to provide the necessary support to participants in a pleasant and relaxed working atmosphere.
Depending on your needs, prior knowledge, and time available, we offer the following types of preparation:
GROUP REGULAR COURSE – 30 classes
The regular course is an ideal choice for those who prefer group work within a relatively short time frame. This course maintains an optimal pace and intensity to ensure sufficient attention to all language skills and types of tasks that appear on the test. It also requires readiness for additional independent study at home.
GROUP INTENSIVE COURSE – 48 classes
The intensive course is the perfect option for those who want to prepare thoroughly, have limited time for home study, or have a low score on the entrance exam and need to make a significant leap towards their target score. The intensive course provides ample time to focus on grammar review, all language skills, and the types of tasks encountered on the test
INDIVIDUAL REGULAR COURSE – 32 classes
This course is for you if you prefer preparation with maximum teacher support, quality literature, and multimedia, along with an optimal dynamic and intensity to pay sufficient attention to all language skills and types of tasks that appear on the test. The schedule, content, and dynamics of individual courses are fully tailored to the student and the target result, and the course assumes readiness for additional independent study at home.
INDIVIDUAL MODULE – 12 classes
This course is for you if you need to improve your score in just one part of the test and/or have already been preparing for the exam on your own or with someone else. The schedule, content, and dynamics of individual courses are fully tailored to the student and the target result, and the course assumes readiness for intensive additional independent study at home.
