Answer:

After you have completed your bachelor's degree you can look into going back to school to become a physical therapist. Depending on where you go you will most likely see a requirement of taking the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). Most schools will have a minimum score you must pass, although some schools do offer a way to waive the score. The GRE is a test that will cover verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, and analytical writing skills. You can find plenty of study guides online, and you can even find in-person practice tests you can do for the GRE. If you find yourself in need of retaking the GRE you should know that it can be retaken every 21 days for a total of five times during the year. It is important that you find out your school's minimum score acceptance as you can decide which scores are reported to the Physical Therapy school you are applying to.
