The GRE Computer Based Test (CBT) is required by graduate and professional schools, as it is considered a crucial prerequisite/component for admission to a graduate program. Applicants for graduate school courses are usually required to submit the GRE test results together with other undergraduate records as part of the application/admission process. The test simply examines your analytical and critical reasoning skills. These are skills that have been established to contribute to successful achievement in a graduate program. The examination does not test prior knowledge of data or facts specific to any field of study.

The computer-based GRE contains three distinct sections with various types of questions


One 30-minute “Analyze an Issue” task, and one 30-minute “Analyze an Argument” task.


Two 20-question sections containing arithmetic, algebra, geometry, quantitative comparisons, and data interpretation questions. Average time for each section is 35minutes.


Two 20-question sections containing analogies/synonyms, sentence completions, and comprehension reading questions.

Prospective graduate and business school applicants from all around the world take the GRE revised General Test. Applicants usually come from different educational and cultural backgrounds and the GRE revised General Test provides a common measure for comparing candidates’ qualifications.
GRE scores are used by admissions or fellowship panels to supplement your undergraduate records, recommendation letters and other qualifications for graduate-level study.
