A graduate or business degree can give you a big career advantage. An important step toward achieving that goal — and the path to thousands of graduate and business programs all over the world — is to take the GRE® General Test.
Graduate programs and business schools use GRE® scores to evaluate your readiness for graduate-level work. The GRE General Test measures verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, critical thinking and analytical writing skills that are not related to any specific field of study.
Each year, more than 600,000 prospective graduate school applicants from approximately 230 countries take the GRE General Test. Applicants come from varying educational backgrounds and countries, and the GRE General Test provides the only common measure for comparing their qualifications. GRE scores are used by admissions or fellowship panels to supplement undergraduate records, recommendation letters and other qualifications for graduate study.
The GRE General Test is accepted at thousands of graduate and business schools as well as departments and divisions within these schools
The computer-based GRE General Test is composed of Analytical Writing, Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning sections. The Analytical Writing section is always first. In addition, one unidentified unscored section may be included and can appear in any position in the test after the Analytical Writing section. Questions in the unscored section are being tested for possible use in future tests, and answers will not count toward your scores. An identified research section that is not scored may also be included, and if so, it is always at the end of the test. The Verbal and Quantitative sections, including the unidentified unscored section, may appear in any order. Treat each section presented during your test as if it counts.
Total testing time is three hours, not including the research section. The directions at the beginning of each section specify the total number of questions in the section and the time allowed for the section.
The paper-based GRE General Test is composed of Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning and Analytical Writing sections.

The directions at the beginning of each section specify the total number of questions in the section and the time allowed for that section.
The Analytical Writing section is always first. For the “Issue” task, two topics will be assigned and you will choose one. The “Argument” task does not present a choice of topics; instead, a single topic will be presented.
The Verbal and Quantitative sections may appear in any order, including an unidentified Verbal or Quantitative unscored section. Treat each section presented during your test as if it counts.
