Introducing the GRE revised General Test

What Are the Main Features of the Revised Test?

The GRE revised General Test is composed of revised Analytical Writing, Verbal Reasoning, and Quantitative Reasoning measures. Each of the measures has been revised to better focus on skills that are necessary for success in graduate school.

  • The Analytical Writing measure asks you to provide more focused response to questions, to more accurately demonstrate your skill in directly responding to the task presented.
  • The Verbal Reasoning measure places a greater emphasis on higher cognitive skills, as a truer, deeper assessment of your ability to understand what you read and how to apply your reasoning skills.
  • The Quantitative Reasoning measure tests the same basic mathematical concepts, but includes more data analysis and more real-life scenarios, to better gauge your skills.

The revised General Test delivers a friendlier, more flexible test-taking experience. Now you will be able to edit or change your answers, and skip questions, all within a section, and more-giving you the freedom to use your own personal test-taking strategies. In addition, a calculator is available on the Quantitative Reasoning measure to reduce the emphasis on computation.

The GRE revised General Test is offered on computer throughout the year on a continuous basis in the United States, Canada, and other regions of the world. Paper based administrations are offered in areas of the world where computer-based resting is not available.

Structure of the Test

Computer-Based revised General Test

The computer-based GRE revised General Test contains six sections:

  • An Analytical Writing section with two tasks, which always comes first in the test
  • two Verbal Reasoning sections
  • two Quantitative Reasoning sections
  • one unscored section, typically a Verbal Reasoning or Quantitative Reasoning section, that may appear at any point in the test

Questions in the unscored section are being tried out either for possible use in future tests or to ensure that scores on new editions of the test are comparable to scores on earlier editions.

An identified research section may be included in place of the unscored section. The research section will always appear at the end of the test. Questions in this section are included for the purpose of ETS research and will not count toward your score.

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.

The Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning measure are section-level adaptive. The computer selects the second section of a measure based on your performance on the first.

The Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning measures allow you to preview other questions within the specific section on which you're working, review questions you've already answered, and change your answers.

Typical Computer-Based revised General Test

Total testing time is 3 hours and 45 minutes, including the unscored section. The directions at the beginning of each Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning section specify the total number of questions in the section and the time allowed for the section. For the Analytical Writing section, the timing for each task is shown when the task is presented.

Section Number of Questions Time
Analytical Writing (1 section) 2 separately timed writing tasks 30 min, per task
Verbal Reasoning (2 sections) Approximately 20 question per section 30 min per section
Quantitative Reasoning (2 sections) Approximately 20 question per section 35 min per section
Research* Approximately 20 question 30-35 min. per section
Unscored** Varies Varies

*An unidentified unscored section that does not count toward a score may be included and may appear in any other.
** An identified research section that is not scored may be included and it will always be at the end of the test.

Score Reporting

Three scores will be reported on the revised General Test:

  • a Verbal Reasoning score reported on a new 130-170 score scale, in 1 point increments
  • a Quantitative Reasoning score reported on a new 130-170 score scale, in 1-point increments
  • an Analytical Writing score reported on a 0-6 score scale, in half-point increments
If you do not answer any questions at all for a measure (Verbal Reasoning Quantitative Reasoning, or Analytical Writing), you receive a No Score (NS) for that measure.
