STRUCTURE AND CONTENT

The GRE revised General Test measures your verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, critical thinking and analytical writing skills — skills that have been developed over a long period of time and are not related to a specific field of study but are important for all.

VERBAL REASONING

The Verbal Reasoning section measures your ability to

  1. Analyze and draw conclusions from discourse; reason from incomplete data; identify author’s assumptions and/or perspective; understand multiple levels of meaning, such as literal, figurative and author’s intent,
  2. Select important points; distinguish major from minor or relevant points; summarize text; understand the structure of a text,
  3. Understand the meanings of words, sentences and entire texts; understand relationships among words and among concepts.

The Verbal Reasoning section measures your ability to understand what you read and how you apply your reasoning skills.

The Quantitative Reasoning section includes an on-screen calculator.

  1. Analyze and draw conclusions from discourse; reason from incomplete data; identify author’s assumptions and/or perspective; understand multiple levels of meaning, such as literal, figurative and author’s intent

  4. Apply basic mathematical skills and elementary mathematical concepts of arithmetic, algebra, geometry and data interpretation

An unidentified un-scored section that does not count toward your score may be included and may appear in any order after the Analytical Writing section. Questions in the un-scored 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 from earlier editions.

An identified research section that does not count toward your score may be included in place of the un-scored section. The research section will always appear at the end of the test. Questions in this section are included for ETS research purposes.

The Analytical Writing section will always be first. The Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning and unidentified/un-scored sections may appear in any order; therefore, you should treat each section as if it counts toward your score.
