The GRE® General Test
For graduate schools and business schools worldwide. For the career of your choice.
GRE® General Test
The GRE® General Test is the only admissions test that is accepted by thousands of graduate and business programs worldwide — including the worldâs top-ranked business schools. Your GRE test scores can be used to apply to advanced-degree programs around the world—giving you more opportunities for your future.
The GRE General Test content reflects the kind of thinking youâll do and the skills you need to succeed in todayâs demanding graduate and business school programs. Specifically, the test measures your verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, critical thinking and analytical writing skills — skills that have been developed over a long period of time and are not related to a specific field of study. The GRE General Test features a test-taker friendly design that gives you the flexibility to use your own test-taking strategies and the ScoreSelect® option, which lets you decide which scores to send to schools.
Test-Taker Friendly Design
Use the test-taker friendly design to do your best! The GRE General Test allows you to freely move forward and backward throughout an entire section. Specific features include:
- Preview and review capabilities within a section
- Mark and Review features to tag questions, so you can skip them and return later if you have time remaining in the section
- The ability to change/edit answers within a section
- An on-screen calculator for the Quantitative Reasoning section
Send Only Your Best Scores
The ScoreSelect® option lets you decide which GRE test scores to send to the schools you designate. You can take a GRE test once now, or again in the future, and only send the GRE test scores from whichever test date(s) you want schools to see. Plus, you have five years to decide how to use any of your scores.
On test day, you can send up to four free score reports from your most recent test administration or from all administrations of the General Test taken in the last five years. After test day, you can send scores from your Most Recent, All or Any specific test administration(s) for a fee when ordering Additional Score Reports online. Scores for a test administration must be reported in their entirety. The ScoreSelect option is available for both the GRE General Test and GRE® Subject Tests.
