About the GRE

Graduate Record Examination or GRE is an important requisite to seek admission to law, business, and graduate schools worldwide. It is a computer-based standardized exam, designed and developed by the ETS. Most schools consider these scores along with your supporting documents and academic records to assess your capability to pursue a graduate program.

Why you Must Take the GRE

  • GRE is accepted by 94 countries and over 1000+ top business and graduate schools worldwide. The GRE scores allow students to apply to various graduate programs.
  • The GRE is frequently required or advised as part of the admissions process for graduate programs. Check the admissions requirements for the graduate program you want to apply to and determine if the GRE is necessary.
  • You can distinguish yourself from other applicants using the GRE. A high GRE score might show admissions committees that you possess the knowledge and skills necessary to be successful in graduate school.
  • You may be able to apply for assistantships or scholarships with the GRE. Some assistantships and scholarship programs may demand or favour candidates who have taken the GRE and received a specific score.

Analytical Writing

There are two tasks in this section – Analyze an Issue & Analyze an Argument.

Analyze an Issue

It tests the analytical thinking capability of a candidate around a general topic. Each issue is followed by a claim that can be interpreted from different perspectives to different conditions and situations.

Analyze an Argument

It requires the candidate to evaluate an argument based on the instructions. This section tests the logical soundness of a candidate. It measures their ability to interpret complex ideas, support the ideas with relevant examples and reasons, examine claims as well as accompanying evidence, and sustain a coherent discussion. A candidate must focus on support, proof or evidence offered in the passage; information that is explicitly claimed, stated, or concluded; information that is supposed or assumed, without a proof or justification; or not clearly stated, but follows the argument that is stated. The evaluation must be presented neatly in writing.

Tip: You are not required to state the truthfulness and accuracy of the statements, present your agreement or disagreement or express your views on the subject rather you have to logically analyze the argument written by someone.

Score Range: 0-6 scale, half-point increment

Verbal Reasoning

This section tests your ability to evaluate written material and interpret its information. It comprises three types of questions – Text Completion, Reading Comprehension, and Sentence Equivalence.

Each section comprises 6 Text Completion Questions, 4 Sentence Equivalence questions, and 10 Reading Comprehension questions, which are presented in the form of multiple-choice questions and 1 or 2 select-in-the-passage questions. The multiple-choice questions are of two types where the student may be asked to select multiple answers or select one answer for the given question.

Score Range: 130-170 scale, 1-point increment

Quantitative Reasoning

This section analyzes a student’s mathematical skills and their ability to solve the problems quantitatively. Their skills are assessed in the four content areas – arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and data analysis. The students are given calculators for both paper and computer-based testing formats.

Each section comprises 8 quantitative comparisons, 3 data interpretation questions, and 9 problem solving questions, which are presented through quantitative comparisons, multiple-choice questions, and numeric entry questions. Again, the multiple-choice questions are of two types where the student may be asked to select multiple answers and select one answer for the given question.

Score Range: 130-170 scale, 1-point increment

GRE Syllabus for General Test

GRE Syllabus for Analytical Writing

In Analytical Writing, each issue topic comes with statements or an issue statement followed by instructions telling how to respond to the topic. Similarly, each argument is followed by a passage presenting an argument.  This is followed by instructions guiding you how to analyze the argument.

GRE Syllabus for Verbal Reasoning

The following are some of the topics covered under the Verbal Reasoning section:

Reading Comprehension features approximately ten passages, which are one paragraph long, and may feature two or more paragraphs. These passages are usually taken from academic and nonacademic books and periodicals in arts and humanities, business, social sciences, and physical and biological sciences. These passages are often accompanied with one to six questions with a single answer, multiple correct answers, and a sentence from a passage.

Text Completion features passages with 1-5 sentences and 1-3 blanks. The sentences with two or three blanks would have up to three answer choices. The sentences that have one blank would have up to five answer choices. Students are required to answer all blanks correctly. There are no partially correct answers.

Sentence Equivalence features a sentence with a blank and six answer choices. Students need to focus on the partial information and complete the passage as required using any two answer choices. They will be awarded a point only for the correct answers. There are no partially correct answers.

Tips for GRE Preparation

This section offers individual GRE preparation tips for Analytical Writing, Verbal Reasoning, and Quantitative Reasoning.

Quantitative Reasoning

  • See the official guide of GRE Quant on the ETS website and list all maths topics.
  • Memorize the question formats.
  • Check the sample papers across various websites to see the extensively covered topics. Averages, percentages, number systems, and ratio-proportion are some common topics.
  • Set a quant baseline and goal scores and time for solving the questions.
  • Learn shortcuts and approximations to save time on questions.
  • Use scratch paper while solving questions, as this will help hone your problem-solving skills.
  • You will get a basic on-screen calculator for calculating the Quantitative Reasoning measure. Use the calculator wisely for tedious calculations such as square roots, long division, subtraction, addition, or multiplication of complex numbers. Incorporate the calculator in your practice tests from the beginning, as they are not easy to use.
  • You can practice charts and geometry-related questions wisely, as many test takers find them confusing and hard to solve.
  • Review your performance in the practice tests. Take down notes on questions that took more time to solve or you found difficult to answer and interpret.

Verbal Reasoning

  • See the official guide of GRE Verbal Reasoning on the ETS website and list all topics.
  • Build your vocabulary, which would help you ace Sentence Equivalence and Text Completion properly.
  • Read the practice test comprehensions carefully to build your familiarity with them. You can also read articles from magazines like The Economist, The Atlantic, Scientific American, and The New Yorker.
  • Always pay attention to the clues given in the question, such as main ideas and supporting ideas, transitions from the main idea to the other, and relationships between different ideas. Mastering the signal words will help you ace the transition sentences properly. Instead, indeed/furthermore, although, and however are some common signal words.
  • Always refer to the information in the passage to answer the questions.
  • Ace the tricks to solve the questions that require critical reasoning. While doing this, you should focus on the questions and their arguments.
  • Develop a proper strategy for each GRE verbal question type.

Analytical Writing

  • See the official guide of ETS to check on the instructions accompanying the AWA tasks.
  • Practice for the Issue and Argument essay.
  • Read the assumptions carefully before writing responses.
  • Evaluate the argument and its soundness while following the specific instructions accompanying the question.
  • Learn to identify false evidence, generalization, and statistics.
  • Try to improve your essay by providing an alternative explanation for the argument.
  • Always use strong statements to enhance the readability of the essay.

Read what they have to say, in their own words, and you’ll see why we’re so confident that you, like them, will be happy to enroll with us for the right guidance.
