Get Started


The Graduate Record Examination ( GRE®) is a test administered by the Educational Testing Service (ETS) and is designed to test your abilities in verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, analytical writing, and critical thinking. Thousands of graduate programs around the world require you to take the GRE® as part of their application requirements. The GRE® was recently updated (August 2011), and the new GRE® revised General Test can be taken in 160 different countries at 700 authorised test centers. The GRE® is normally given through a computer-based format. However, a paper-based format is an option in areas that do not have internet availability.

The computer-based GRE® revised General Test consists of seven sections. The Analytical Writing section always occurs first, and the other sections appear afterwards in a random order. Individuals taking the test can move freely back and forth within a section, and they are provided with an on-screen calculator for the Quantitative sections.

There may also be additional Verbal or Quantitative Reasoning sections or questions that are not factored into your final score and are used by ETS to test new questions. These sections are not identified or distinguished from the scored sections. Because of this, it is in your best interest to answer all GRE® test questions to the best of your ability.

The Analytical Writing section contains two separate essay questions. Each essay question must be completed within the 30 minute time limit. There are two types of essays: an issue essay and an argument essay. The issue essay involves writing a response to a given topic, and the argument essay involves critiquing a given argument.
The Verbal Reasoning section consists of two sections each with approximately 20 questions per section. Each section has a 30 minute time limit. The three types of questions in this section are sentence equivalence, text completion, and critical reading. Generally, there are approximately six text completion, four sentence equivalence, and ten critical reading questions per section.
The Quantitative Reasoning section consists of two sections each with approximately 20 questions per section. Each section has a 35 minute time limit. The three types of questions in this section are quantitative comparisons, problem solving, and data interpretation. Generally, there are approximately eight quantitative reasoning, nine problem solving, and three data interpretation questions per section.

The Analytical Writing section is scored on a scale of 0-6 (with half point increments). The Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning sections are combined and scored on a scale of 130-170 (with one point increments). The GRE® currently offers a free diagnostic service to help one understand their results, and they have recently introduced a ‘ScoreSelect’ option which allows one to choose which scores are sent to specified educational institutions.

Test scores are usually sent out 10-15 days after the test date, and they can be viewed online after the same time period. Scores are valid for five years. The  GRE® can be retaken once every 60 days and no more than 5 times a year.

The first step in registering for the GRE® is to find out where the nearest test center is and what test formats they have available. You can find out this information by going here.

After that, you can register on-line by going to the ETS website.

The name you use to register must completely match the name on the forms of identification you bring with you to the test center on the day of the test as proof of identification. The forms of identification you bring to the test center on the day of the test must be issued to you, be up-to-date, and contain your photo and signature. A passport or government-issued driver’s license is ideal.

Payment for the test is made by credit or debit card only.
