Mumbai: A Mumbai girl has topped the Graduate Record Examination (GRE) — a pre-requisite for admissions to most US graduate schools and for some other countries — by scoring full marks of 340/340, an official said here Wednesday.
The topper is Ashwini Nene, 20, a student of Sardar Patel Institute of Technology, Andheri.
The GRE results were announced by Educational Testing Services, a US-based organisation that conducts the examinations worldwide.
Nene is one of the few students globally to have scored full marks in a revised and tougher GRE format this year. GRE is a pre-requisite for admissions to most US graduate schools and for some other countries.
“It is hard to predict what (questions) one will get and though I expected to get close to 340, I did not anticipate an absolute score. Now, I shall focus on my academic and build a strong profile to qualify for the best universities in the US,” Nene said.
Nene’s parents are technology professionals in Vile Parle, a suburb of north-west Mumbai.
