What is the GRE Exam?

The Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) is required for entry to most graduate programs around the world.

The exam has three sections: Analytical Writing, Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning. Altogether, the exam takes about four hours to complete, including optional breaks.

You can take the exam online or on paper. The GRE is offered three times a year on paper both in the US and internationally, and year-round online in most locations

 

How is the GRE Scored?

If you take the GRE online, the “adaptive” scoring system will be in place.

Your performance on the first portion of both the Verbal and Quantitative section determine how difficult the next portion of both sections will be. This means that If you score well on the first set of questions, your next set will be more difficult, but you’ll be able to achieve a higher score.

If you take the exam on paper, there are medium difficulty questions and the scorer considers the level of difficulty so that no matter how you take the exam, the scoring is fair.


What is a good GRE SCore?

A good GRE score is 330+, which equates to 710+ on the GMAT. To achieve this score, you’ll need at least 168 in the Verbal section and 162 in the Quantitative section.

Certain graduate programs may weigh one section heavier than another, but of course you don’t want to take any chances and it’s better to aim for the highest score possible in each section.

We’d recommended that you take a look at the specific courses you are interested in to find out what GRE scores they expect.
