    GRE General Test Overview
    What Is It?
    The GRE®️ General Test measures critical thinking, analytical writing, verbal reasoning, and quantitative reasoning skills that have been acquired over a long period of time and that are not related to any specific field of study.

    Analytical Writing — The skills measured include the test taker's ability to

    articulate complex ideas clearly and effectively
    examine claims and accompanying evidence
    support ideas with relevant reasons and examples
    sustain a well-focused, coherent discussion
    control the elements of standard written English.
    Verbal Reasoning — The skills measured include the test taker's ability to

    analyze and evaluate written material and synthesize information obtained from it
    analyze relationships among component parts of sentences
    recognize relationships between words and concepts.
    Quantitative Reasoning — The skills measured include the test taker's ability to

    understand basic concepts of arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and data analysis
    reason quantitatively
    solve problems in a quantitative setting.
    Who Takes It and Why?
    Prospective graduate applicants take the General Test. GRE test scores are used by admissions or fellowship panels to supplement undergraduate records and other qualifications for graduate study. The scores provide common measures for comparing the qualifications of applicants and aid in evaluating grades and recommendations.

    Where Do People Take It?
    The General Test is offered year-round at computer-based test centers in the U.S., Canada, and many other countries. It is offered at paper-based test centers in areas of the world where computer-based testing is not available. See which format is available in your area.

    Who Accepts It?
    Any accredited graduate or professional school, or any department or division within a school, may require or recommend that its applicants take the General Test, a Subject Test, or both. If approved by the GRE Board, a non-accredited institution can also receive test takers' scores.
