GRE Verbal Reasoning

The Verbal Reasoning section measures a candidate's ability to understand and analyze written material, and to evaluate arguments. It includes two types of questions

  • Reading comprehension questions: Reading comprehension questions test a candidate's ability to understand the main idea, tone, and purpose of a passage, as well as the relationship between different parts of the passage. These questions may require the test taker to identify the main idea of a passage, understand the author's tone and purpose, or identify the relationships between different parts of a passage.

  • Text completion questions: Text completion questions test a candidate's ability to use context clues to fill in missing words in a passage. These questions include a sentence or a passage with one or more blank spaces. The test taker is required to fill in the blank spaces with the most appropriate word or phrase based on the context of the passage.

The questions on the Verbal Reasoning section are designed to be of graduate-level difficulty, and are intended to test a candidate's ability to understand and analyze complex written material, and to evaluate arguments. The section may include passages from a variety of sources such as literature, social science, and natural science.

GRE Quantitative Reasoning

The Quantitative Reasoning section measures a candidate's ability to understand and analyze quantitative information, and to solve problems using mathematical concepts. It includes two types of questions:

  • Quantitative comparison questions: Quantitative Comparison questions present two quantities, labeled Quantity A and Quantity B, and ask the test taker to compare the two quantities and determine which is greater, which is smaller or if they are equal. These questions require the test taker to have a good understanding of mathematical concepts, including arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and data analysis.

  • Problem-solving questions: Problem-solving questions require the test taker to use mathematical concepts and techniques to solve problems. These questions test a candidate's ability to understand mathematical concepts, to reason abstractly, and to apply mathematical concepts to solve problems. The questions may include concepts such as arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and data analysis.

The questions on the Quantitative Reasoning section are designed to be of graduate-level difficulty, and are intended to test a candidate's ability to think critically and to solve problems using mathematical concepts.

GRE Analytical Writing

The Analytical Writing section measures a candidate's ability to understand and analyze complex issues, and to articulate clear and well-supported arguments. It includes two tasks:

  • “Analyze an Issue” Task: The "Analyze an Issue" task presents an issue and requires the test taker to write a well-organized, well-supported essay that takes a position on the issue. The test taker is required to analyze the issue and provide evidence and examples to support their position. This task is designed to test a candidate's ability to think critically, to write clearly, and to support their position with relevant examples and evidence.

  • “Analyze an Argument” Task: The "Analyze an Argument" task presents an argument and requires the test taker to write a well-organized, well-supported essay that evaluates the argument. The test taker is required to analyze the argument and provide evidence and examples to support their evaluation. This task is designed to test a candidate's ability to think critically, to write clearly, and to evaluate an argument using relevant examples and evidence.

The GRE analytical writing is scored on a scale of 0 to 6, in half-point increments. Two independent graders will evaluate the essay and assign scores, then the scores are combined to get the final score. The scores are based on the quality of the writing, the strength of the argument, and the use of relevant examples and evidence.
