Study Options :
Biotechnology, computer science and electronics are some of the most popular courses in the USA. Other specialised postgraduate courses in streams like medicine, cosmetic surgery, para-psychology, diabetes and genetics are also popular.
Some of the US institutes have three academic years/admission cycles for students. But mostly admissions happen during fall and spring semesters. The curriculum comprises short- or mid-term assessments for students, with assignments to complete. The overall performance of students is based not on the final exams, but on how they perform in each assessment.
The standardized tests that are generally mandatory in US universities are:
- Test for English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) – an English language test required of all non-native English speakers.
- General Test of the Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) – test to measure abilities for admission to all non-business programs (after graduation )
- Graduate Management Admissions Test (GMAT). – mandatory for almost all Business programs (eg. MBA/MS (Business related majors like Finance).
- Scholastic Admission Test (SAT) – For admission to degree courses (after +2)
