GRE Scores for Canadian Universities

What is required GRE Scores for Canadian Universities? Is it possible to get admission in Canada without GRE Scores?

I searched to find the GRE Scores for Canadian Universities.

There are so many schools, but with few minuets of search, I pulled the following information about required GRE Scores for Canadian Universities.

Save this page for more info on GRE Scores for Canadian Universities.

Unlike schools in US, universities have GRE as optional.

GRE Scores for Canadian Universities

GRE Score requirements fall into 3 categories

  • Some universities don’t require GRE scores for grad school admission.
  • Some Canadian universities require GRE scores, but don’t specify minimum scores
  • Some require GRE score and have minimum GRE Scores for admission.

Simon Fraser University – GRE Scores

  • Computing Science Department – We look at the complete application to get an understanding of the applicants suitability to our program. No single criteria exists that uniquely determines this fact. Hence, even if your test scores don’t perfectly fulfill our requirements, we still consider your application to look for outstanding personalities.

McGill University

  • Biochemistry: International students who have received their degree outside North America should submit the Graduate Record Exam (GRE), either the General or Subject test in Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology. The minimum score is 550. The GRE is not required but is strongly recommended.
  • Electrical and Computer Engineering : Applicants who have not completed a degree (undergraduate or graduate) in Canada must provide a GRE score on the General Aptitude Test. Applicants must achieve a combined score of at least 1100 on the verbal and quantitative sections and a minimum score of 3.5/6.0 on the analytical writing assessment section.
  • Biotechnology – GRE Scores Not Required

University of Saskatchewan

  • Computer science – Taking the GRE is not compulsory but GRE results may be submitted with your application.  A strong performance on the GRE will enhance your application.

University of Toronto

  •  Rotman Business School – GMAT/GRE Score: A GMAT or GRE score must be submitted. The GMAT range for the 2011 class was 550-780 and the average score was 663.

University of Waterloo

  • Computer Science, Health Informatics, Pharmacy, Physics, Physics (Nanotechnology), Psychology  – Required

University of Alberta

  •  Chemical and Materials – Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit Graduate Record Exam (GRE) scores
  • Computer Science – GRE: score of 700 in quantitative portion of the exam and 4.0 on the analytical writing

Additional Universities will be added to this list. If you required required GRE Scores for Universities in Canada, leave the name of the university and department as comment below.

So you have to think about that before replying to anyone. sorry i replied you in this manner but this was necessary. anywasy hoping for relevant reply. thank you. :)

          You are right and at same time, I’m not providing public service blog. Over half million people come to this site monthly and I’m running a business. You can hire me or join Premium Membership to learn the proper way to select schools. and I still stand by my comments.

          A simple search in Google, should give you enough information to find top program’s GRE and TOEFL Scores.

          If that doesn’t work, simple logic – Top schools require Top scores. GRE Max is 340 and you should be able to guess you need 320 and above.

    Hi, I have a GRE acore of 306 (Q:157, V: 149), TOEFL: 107, undergrad GPA: 3.22 from a top 20 Public University in the USA.
    What are my chances of gaining admission in Univ of Toronto, Univ of Canada, Mc Gill University, Mc Master University? Any chance at all of getting a scholarship? Should I retake the GRE to improve my chances?
    I would really appreciate advice in the matter. Thanks!!

    1. Gagan

      Hey alisha

      I think in order to get into top universities ,minimum of 310 is must.But it depends on profile too.If your profile can compensate that margin.Then no need to take gre again.

    Good to see your recent posts regarding Canada. Please throw some light towards college transfer process in canada. As per my research on these i came through some mixed answers. Most people say we can transfer only within the province is that true? Hearing it from you will make me feel 100% sure. Also by having a PG Diploma course can we join masters program directly to the second year’s(lateral entry) term. Whats your perspective regarding the PG Diploma courses?
