About GRE


What is the GRE?

The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is a standardised test that is accepted for graduate admissions at thousands of graduate and business schools across the world.  After a major overhaul of the test itself in August 2011, the new pattern GRE lets you skip questions, change your answers and control which questions you want to tackle first. It is section-adaptive, so the performance on the first verbal and math sections determine the difficulty of the second sections presented to a test taker.

What is the GRE syllabus & test structure?



The GRE features question types that closely reflect the kind of thinking you’ll require in graduate or business school. The three broad sections you’ll encounter are

  • Verbal Reasoning

Measures your ability to analyze and evaluate written material and synthesize information obtained from it, analyze relationships among component parts of sentences and recognize relationships among words and concepts

  • Quantitative Reasoning

Measures problem-solving ability, focusing on basic concepts of arithmetic, algebra, geometry and data analysis

  • Analytical Writing 

Measures critical thinking and analytical writing skills, specifically your ability to articulate and support complex ideas clearly and effectively

The overall testing time for the computer-based  GRE is about 3 hours and 45 minutes. There are 6 sections with a 10-minute break following the third section.

How is the GRE scored?

The GRE is scored out of a total of 340 points, which include the Verbal & the Quant section. The analytical writing section is separately scored out of 6 points.
