Graduate Record Exam (GRE)

  About GRE

The GRE (Graduate Record Exam) Test is the standardized test used to get admissions in various graduate schools or business graduate schools in various English speaking countries, especially the United States.

  The Quantitative Section

Each quantitative section has approximately 20-25 questions to complete in 35 minutes, giving you between 1 – 2 minutes per question. On the GRE, you will see all the QCs first, then PS questions. Near the end of the PS questions, you’ll encounter the Data Interpretation questions, presented as a set.

  The Verbal Section

Each verbal section has approximately 20-25 questions to complete in 30 minutes, giving you between 1 – 3 minutes per question, depending on the type. Each Verbal section will start with Text Completions, then you’ll see a block of 4–5 Reading Comp questions, then the block of Sentence Equivalence questions, and you’ll finish up with a second block of RC.

  GRE Analytical Writing

The GRE essay section, also known as the GRE Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA), is actually comprised of two essays: the Issue and the Argument. You are allowed 30 minutes for each essay. Both test your ability to formulate a cogent thesis statement, which you must defend over the course of several paragraphs.

  Unscored Section

There are six sections, one of which is an unidentified / unscored section. The Analytical Writing section will always be first. The Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning and unidentified / unscored sections may appear in any order; therefore, you should treat each section as if it counts toward your score.
