Abstract

College entrance exams are known to be one of the most nerve-racking steps a student has to cross for a better future. These exams measure students’ collective knowledge in different skill areas and predict what potentials they have for future performances in different fields. This study will examine the differences in performance between native and non-native speakers of English in the English section of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). It is the one test written in English that applicants from all around the world take on the same date and with the same copy, and this study aims to help the students in their preparation to predict what their weaknesses are, and find a common ground between each category in the GRE test. The results of the research are based on the case study of students' performance in the test and will involve 60 students, 30 native and 30 non-native speakers of English. The participants will be given the same written test in order to separate the mistakes found in different linguistic categories
