GRADUATE RECORD EXAMINATION is created and administered by Educational Testing Service (ETS®) and required by admission to Graduate study programs in Science, Engineering, Liberal Arts. Lately, some Graduate Schools of Business such as Stanford and Harvard have indicated that they will accept GRE General Test scores for admission consideration.

GRE®, acronym for Graduate Record Examination and a registered trademark of Educational Testing Service (ETS®), is general competency exam testing your quantitative and verbal REASONING skills, and measuring your ability to make logical interpretation of context-specific and conceptual information presented to you or known to you, and to make logical decisions using such interpretation. The GRE general test is a standard requirement for admission to any Graduate Degree Program(other than Management, Law, Medicine) at any American University. The GRE general test has three assessment sections, two of which are adaptive. The Analytical Writing Section (AWA)  on fhe GRE requires you to write two essays, one analyzing an Issue and another analyzing an Argument.  The score for the GRE Analytical Writing section is separate from the score for the GRE adaptive sections:  The GRE AWA section is scored on a scale between 0 and 6.  The two 'adaptive' sections on the GRE test your Verbal and Quantitative reasoning skills.The 'adaptivity' on the GRE test allows you to let the computer choose the difficulty level at which you are most comfortable on the GRE test. Your ability to get a GRE test score in the top 5% of all test-takers depends on your ability to take the GRE test at high difficulty level throughout.  MLICETS GRE test-prep courses will train you to be effective and competent in the GRE concept areas and in the procedures that will facilitate GRE test-taking at high difficulty level so that you can achieve a GRE test score of better than 1500.

The following is the announcement from ETS® about the roll-out of the revised GRE General Test. Among the major changes is the chage to the SCORE SCALE for Verbal and Quantitative sections from the current 200-800 to 130-170 in 1-point increments. The AWA section will continue to be scored on the scale from 0 to 6. However, the time allotted per ISSUE essay will be reduced from 45 minutes to 30 minutes, and you will no longer receive two topics to choose one from.

For many students, taking the test that can help pave the way to graduate and business school is a big step. With that in mind, ETS has designed the GRE® revised General Test to be friendlier, more flexible and more focused on the skills you need for graduate and business school.

Now, you'll find new types of questions. More real-life scenarios that mirror the kind of thinking you'll do with graduate-level work. And a friendlier, more flexible test design that gives you the freedom to use more of your own test-taking style and strategies. There’s even an on-screen calculator for help with the Quantitative Reasoning section.*

Here are the changes that give you a better test experience:

  • New preview and review capabilities within a section
  • New "mark and review" feature to tag questions, so you can skip and return later
  • New ability to change/edit answers within a section
  • New on-screen calculator* for the Quantitative Reasoning section
  • New questions that better reflect the skills you'll need for graduate and business school
  • New answer formats, including tasks such as numeric entry and highlighting a sentence in a passage to answer a question
  • Less reliance on vocabulary out of context, more emphasis on reading — and no antonyms or analogies

*For those taking the paper-based GRE revised General Test in areas of the world where the computer-based test is not available, the test design and question types will be modified to be appropriate for a paper-based, linear test. In addition, calculators will be provided at the test center for use during the paper-based test. Learn more about the paper-based test and important timing differences.

The technology behind the friendlier, more flexible design

The computer-based GRE revised General Test features advanced technology that allows you to freely move forward and backward throughout an entire section to change or edit responses, even skip questions you can come back to later.

This new flexibility gives you a better, friendlier test experience — and the advantage of using more of your own personal test-taking strategies and style.

What Is Changing About Test Structure and Length 

The overall testing time for the computer-based GRE revised General Test is about three hours and 45 minutes, plus short breaks. There are six sections to the revised test:

  • One Analytical Writing section with two separately timed writing tasks
  • 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 computer-based GRE revised General Test
  • An identified research section that is not scored may also be included in the computer-based GRE revised General Test

The Analytical Writing section will always be first, while the other five sections may appear in any order.

Here's a breakdown of the timing and tasks for each test section:

Table with breakdown of the timing and tasks for each test section
Analytical Writing
(One section with two separately timed tasks)
One "Analyze an Issue" task and one "Analyze an Argument" task 30 minutes per task
Verbal Reasoning
(Two sections)
Approximately 20 questions per section 30 minutes per section
Quantitative Reasoning
(Two sections)
Approximately 20 questions per section 35 minutes per section
Unscored Varies Varies
Research†† Varies Varies

An unidentified unscored section that does not count toward a score may be included and may appear in any order after the Analytical Writing section.

††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.

You'll get a 10-minute break following the third section, and a 1-minute break between the other test sections.

GRE® GENERAL TEST will include two new question types
Beginning in November 2007, GRE General Test takers may encounter one of two new questions in the Verbal Reasoning or Quantitative Reasoning sections of the computer-based GRE General Test. The new Verbal question type is a text completion question that requires the test taker to fill in two or three blanks within a passage from separate multiple-choice lists. Currently, the Verbal section contains text completion questions that require test takers to fill in one blank within a passage from a single multiple-choice list. The new Quantitative question type will be a numeric entry question that requires test takers to type their answer as a number in a box, or as a fraction in two boxes.
Example of the new question in Verbal Reasoning:
Directions: For each blank select one entry from the corresponding column of choices. Fill all blanks in the way that best completes the text.
