The GRE is not a test of innate ability

The GRE is a test of one’s ability to:

  • Set goals and work toward them
  • Put off short-term rewards for long-term gains
  • Organize time strategically
  • Use metacognition (know what you know & don’t know)

These are all abilities required to succeed in graduate school!

These are skills that can be learned!
