The Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) is a standardized that is an admissions requirement for most graduate schools in the United States. Created and administered by Educational Testing Service (ETS) in 1949, the exam aims to measure verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, analytical writing, and critical thinking skills that have been acquired over a long period of time and that are not related to any specific field of study. The GRE General Test is offered as a computer-based exam administered at Prometric testing centers.
This Test comprises of six sections. The first section is always the analytical writing section involving separately timed issue and argument tasks. The next five sections include two verbal reasoning sections, two quantitative reasoning sections, and either an experimental or research section. These five sections may occur in any order. The experimental section does not count towards the final score but is not distinguished from the scored sections. The entire testing procedure lasts about 3 hours 45 minutes.
The cost of taking the test is US$205.The GRE may be retaken as many times as one wishes to. However, one can only take the GRE once per calendar month, and up to 5 times per year. In the graduate school admissions process, the level of emphasis that is placed upon GRE scores varies widely between schools and between departments within schools. The importance of a GRE score can range from being a mere admission formality to an important selection factor.
There are six sections with a 10-minute break following the third section.
