The GRE® Test

Test Structure

SECTION TYPE NO. OF SECTIONS QUESTIONS PER SECTION TIME PER SECTION SCORE SCALE
Analytical Writing 1 2 essay topics 30 min. per essay 0 - 6
Verbal Reasoning 2 20 30 min. per section 130 - 170
Quantitative Reasoning 2 20 35 min. per section 130 - 170

Test time : 3 hours and 45 minutes approximately

unscored and research sections

In addition there may also be a 30 or 35-minute 'Unscored' section, which may come at any point after the Analytical Writing Section. Sometimes in place of the Unscored section there may be a 30 or 35-minute 'Research' section, which always comes at the end of the test. Both the Unscored and Research sections usually consist of an extra Quantitative or Verbal Reasoning section. The ETS® uses the Research section for testing new kinds of questions. The Unscored section is also used to make sure that the level of difficulty in different editions of the test and in individual tests is the same. So, neither of the sections contributes to a test-taker's actual score. If an Unscored section appears in the test, there is usually no way of identifying which section is unscored - all that the test-taker will know is that there are 3 Verbal or 3 Quantitative sections instead of 2. So, all sections have to be attempted equally seriously. The Research section however, always comes at the end and therefore can be easily identified and skipped.

There will be a break of 10 minutes after the second section and breaks of 1 minute between the other sections, bringing the total testing time to about 3 hours 45 minutes.

verbal reasoning and quantitative reasoning score scales

The scores for both the Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning sections are on a scale of 130-170 with 1-point increment. Your scores in these sections depend on your performance on the questions given and on the number of questions answered in the time allotted. Within each section, all questions contribute equally to the final score.
