Is a good GRE score enough for a non-math graduate to be accepted in a decent pure mathematics graduate program?

I have a computer engineering degree , and i have studied several mathematics courses like single variable and multiples variables calculus , complex variables , probability , numerical analysis ... etc I fell in love with mathematics after graduation and employment , and i'm considering doing postgraduate program in mathematics and change my career into mathematics research Schools around me (where i have established my living) don't have any different study options suitable for my case , all they offer is a regular 4 years undergraduate program followed by graduate studies as in the typical path I started to self study mathematics in order to have a high score in mathematics GRE exam so i can apply for a scholarship or find a "paid" graduate program somewhere else . my question is : > Can a high score in GRE mathematics exam be a substitute for a math > degree ? does it show the required abilities required in decent > mathematics graduate programs ? **Does that sound like a good plan ? any pointers and suggestions would be appreciated**t stumped or confused in the more abstract material. Would going through these books be sufficient? It seems like the entire undergrad in math, except for things like number theory...should I even care about that? Thank you.
