The GRE® General Test is a computer-based test that adapts to the answers given by the candidate, who can skip questions and move within a module, as one would in a paper-based test. Because the test is adaptive, the two sections verbal and one discipline (cognitive field) are simulated according to the candidate's capabilities (they become either easier or more difficult).
The examination consists of 3 parts:
Verbal reasoning – two sections -20 questions per section. – 30 minutes each
Quantitative reasoning – two sections --20 questions per section. – 35 minutes each.
Analytical Writing Assessment – 2 reports – 30 minutes each.
The total duration of the examination is 3 hours and 45 minutes. The scores last five years. The candidate can repeat the test every 21 days.
