Hi Anonymous,

score certifications such as GMAT and GRE are a nice-to-have add on for your CV but not an essential element; it is worth to add them to your CV only if the score is good/excellent though.

Hope this helps,
Francesco

Hi,

If you already have it and it's good - it will be one extra point in your CV

If you are thinking of preparing to GRE and passing the exam just to put it in your resume - it's not worth it because nobody really cares

Best!

What if it's relatively low and as a PhD student, I have to put it on in application?

Hi! You don't have to put it, there is no such a rule
