Test content and its structure

Introduced on August 1, 2011, the GRE revised General Test features new types of questions reflecting the practical skills and knowledge required to succeed in today’s demanding graduate and business school programs. It is designed to provide a more friendlier and flexible test taking experience.

The content covered in the three test sections-Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning and Analytical writing.

Verbal Reasoning: The Verbal Reasoning section measures one’s ability to...

  • Analyse and draw conclusions from discourse; reason from in-complete data; identify author’s assumptions and/or perspec-tive’s understand multiple levels of meaning, such as liberal, flgu-rative and author’s intent.
  • Select important points; distinguish major from minor or relevant points; summarize text; understand the structure of a text.
  • Understand the meaning of words, sentences and entire texts; understand relationships among words and among concepts.
  • Features new types of questions, to measure the understanding capability of the reading and application of reasoning skills.

The Verbal Reasoning Section of the GRE revised General Test contains three types of questions:

  1. Reading comprehension (appear in sets)
  2. Text Completion
  1. Sentence Equivalence.

Quantitative Reasoning: The quantitative section measures one’s ability to...

  • Understand quantitative information
  • Interpret and analyze quantitative information
  • Solve problems using mathematical models.
  • Apply basic mathematical skills and elementary mathematical concepts of arithmetic, algebra, geometry, probability and sta-tistics.

The emphasis is on data interpretation and real-life scenarios and new types of questions are posed to unearth the candidates quantitative reasoning ability.

Candidates taking computer based test can use online calculators and candidates taking paper based tests will be provided with calculators by the test-centre.

The Quantitative Reasoning section contains four types of questions:

  1. Multiple-choice Questions-Select one answer choice
  2. Multiple-choice Questions-Select one or more choices
  3. Numeric Entry Questions
  4. Quantitative Comparison Questions.

Each Question appears either independently as a discrete question or as part of a set of questions called Data Interpretation set. All the questions in a Data Interpretation set are based on the same data presented in tables, graphs or others displays of data.

Analytical Writing: The analytical writing section measures your ability to...

  • Articulate complex ideas clearly and effectively.
  • Support ideas with relevant reasons and examples.
  • Examine claims and accompanying evidence.
  • Sustain a well focused, coherent discussion.
  • Control the elements of standard written English.

The Analytical writing section requires focused responses based on the tasks presented, for the accurate demonstration of skills indirectly responding to a task. The analytical writing section of the GRE revised General Test consists of two separately timed analytical writing tasks.

  1. Analyse an issue task.
  2. Analyse an argument task.

Analyse an issue talk: Assesses ability to think critically about a topic of general interest and to clearly express one’s thoughts about it in writing. Each issue statement makes a claim wherein one can discuss from various perspective and apply to many different situations or conditions. The issue statement is followed by a set of specific instructions.

Analyse an argument task: The “analyse an argument” task assesses one’s ability to understand, analyse and evaluate arguments and to clearly convey one’s evaluation in writing. A brief passage is given in which the author makes a case for some course of action or interpretation of events by presenting claims backed by reasons and evidence. The task to be carried out is to discuss the logical soundness of the author’s case according to the specic instructions by critically examining the line of reasoning and the use of evidence.

Qns. What scores are reported on the GRE revised General Test?
Ans. Three scores are reported on the GRE revised General Test:
A Verbal Reasoning score is reported on a 130–170 score scale, in 1-point increments.
A Quantitative Reasoning score is reported on a 130–170 score scale, in 1-point increments.
An Analytical Writing score is reported on a 0–6 score level, in half-point increments.

Qns. What are the GRE Subject Tests?
Ans. The GRE Subject Tests are intended to measure your knowledge of specific subject matter. Subject Tests are available in eight disciplines: biochemistry, cell and molecular biology; biology; chemistry; computer science; literature in English; mathematics; physics; and psychology. These tests are given in paper–and–pencil format three times per year, in November, December, and April.

These tests are given separately from the GRE General Test and require additional fees. Check with the graduate schools to which you are applying to determine whether any of these extra tests are required.

Qns. What is different about the revised GRE general test?
Ans. The GRE revised general test will include new types of questions and new design features, making it more user-friendly. Featuring advanced technology that lets test takers move back and forth, edit and change answers, skip and return to questions, all within a section, you can now have the freedom to use more of your own strategies and styles. There are also new answer formats such as highlighting a sentence in a passage, selecting multiple correct answer choices and entering numeric answers in a box, rather than having to select from a list.

Qns. There is also a difference in the test questions.

Ans. The verbal and quantitative reasoning questions have been improvised in order to reflect more closely the thinking needed in today's demanding graduate and business school programs.
New types of questions in the verbal reasoning section better measure your ability to understand what you've read and how you apply your reasoning skills. Plus, antonyms and analogies are no longer on the test, so there aren't questions that test vocabulary out of context.
New types of questions in the quantitative reasoning section puts more emphasis on data interpretation and real-life scenarios. You'll also have an on-screen calculator.

Qns. The revised test takes 3 hours and 45 minutes to complete.
Ans. The computer-based GRE revised general test will last about 3 hours 45 minutes, and consists of separately timed sections:

  • Verbal Reasoning Two 30-minute sections, approximately 20 questions each
  • Quantitative Reasoning Two 35-minute sections, approximately 20 questions
  • Analytical Writing One section, two separately timed 30-minute tasks, "Analyze an Issue" and "Analyze an Argument".
