If you are an aspirant who want to pursue his higher education that is Post Graduation /Masters Degree program or PhD in USA or Canada you need to appear for GRE. Also if You are a person who\u2019s native language is not English you need to appear for TOEFL irrespective of whether you had your undergraduate / post graduate study in English medium. Hence all Indians must have to appear these two examinations if they want to go for MS ( Master of Science ) / PhD program in any discipline. Hence here is a brief description of these two examinations and other useful information which you need to know before you opt for MS/ PhD. It is a long, meticulous and often painful process but is definitely worth it if you want a good graduate education in the engineering sciences. I will now detail the steps to be followed, in chronological order.
The General Test measures analytical writing, verbal, and quantitative skills that have been acquired over a long period of time and that are not related to any specific field of study.
The analytical writing section tests your critical thinking and analytical writing skills. It assesses your ability to articulate and support complex ideas, analyze an argument, and sustain a focused and coherent discussion. It does not assess specific content knowledge.
Theverbal section measures your ability to analyze and evaluate written material and synthesize information obtained from it, to analyze relationships among component parts of sentences, to recognize relationships between words and concepts, and to reason with words in solving problems. There is a balance of passages across different subject matter areas: humanities, social sciences, and natural sciences.
Thequantitative section measures your basic mathematical skills, your understanding of elementary mathematical concepts, and your ability to reason quantitatively and solve problems in a quantitative setting. There is a balance of questions requiring arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and data analysis. These are content areas usually studied in high school.
GRE , ARCO , Princeton Review ( Also the CD provided with this book is supposed to be very good) , KAPLAN etc. ETS also provides a Free Preparation CD after you register for GRE. You may try out a google search .
The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) measures the ability of nonnative speakers of English to use and understand North American English as it is used in college and university settings. Scores on the test are required by more than 4,300 two- and four-year colleges and universities, professional schools, and sponsoring institutions.
The test is offered on computer throughout most regions of the world. In areas where access to computer-based testing is limited, a supplemental paper-and-pencil version of the test is administered
First of all decide whether to go for MS in USA , CANADA where GRE / TOEFL or both are required. Since there are steps to follow only if you are determinant. If yes then decide the field of interest. That is whether to opt MS in the same field of your graduation or any other field. Accordingly decide your projects in that particular field. 1. Get your passport since you have to give your Passport number as your identification
number in the GRE application form.
2. That is get your Industrial Training done if necessary in that field.
3. Then do your mini project & Final year project in that field only.
4. Also try for the final seminar in that particular topic.
5. Get some research papers in this field published in international magazines or at least
present it in inter college technical festivals. In this case the students should note one thing that the research work done should be an original piece of work . Then only it is of importance.
It is not necessary for you to get an admission for MS to follow all the remaining fields but if you are planning for and AID this is must. Also for getting admission this plays crucial role in the process. Try to do as many as things possible of these.
Hopefully by the time the Prof Letting ( Discussed Later ) process starts you will have decided which sub-field of your department interests you enough for you to pursue your graduate education in it. It need not be too narrow, but there should be some choice made. Second fact of life - people working in some fields get scholarships easier than people in others. But it should not be the only factor in deciding which field you are going to work/apply in -otherwise you may end up doing an MS in something you do not like. Applying in the field in which you did your final-year project and the maximum things mentioned above will improve your chances, but that does not mean that your MS should be constrained by what you did in your Final year project.
If you are planning for MS/PhD in a different field than your graduation then it important that you get maximum of this stuff done in order to substantiate yourself in the Statement of Purpose and make your resume look more impressive.
