What is GRE and how it is structured?

The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) General Test is designed to provide graduate schools with common measures for comparing the qualifications of applicants. The GRE is a computer-based test. It is a computer-adaptive test: while the number of questions in any given section is fixed, the difficulty and scoring value of those questions varies according to the previous responses provided by the test-taker. Rather than having a fixed point value, questions of varied difficulty are used in order to 'zero in' on the level of question that represents the upper bound of the test-taker's ability. Because of the way in which the score value changes over the course of the test, early questions are much more important in determining the final score than those that appear near the end of a section. Questions cannot be skipped or returned to. The exam measures verbal, quantitative, and analytical writing skills that have been developed over a long period of time. Data shows that scores on the GRE General Test consistently predict graduate school students' grades and performance. In addition to an admission criterion, schools often use GRE scores to determine eligibility for merit-based grants and fellowships, as well as teaching and research assistantships. Many programs, especially those at large state schools, establish cutoff points for GRE scores to limit the application pool, while others use GRE scores to directly determine how much financial support you receive. Investing time and effort in preparing for the GRE today can help you get into the grad school of your choice and can greatly increase your chances of getting financial aid.The Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) General Test is a multiple-choice admission test for applicants to graduate schools. The test is administered by the Educational Testing Service (ETS), under the sponsorship of the Graduate Record Examinations Board. The GRE is a computer-adaptive test (CAT), and consists of three scored sections:
What is a CAT and how does it work?

A CAT is a computer-adaptive test, whose software calculates your score based on the number of questions you answer correctly, the difficulty of the questions you answer, and the number of questions you complete. When you take the GRE CAT, you'll begin each section with a medium-level question and a score of 500. If you answer the question correctly, the computer will raise your score and give you a harder question. If you answer the question incorrectly, your score will decrease and you'll be given an easier question. The process repeats for each question in the section, to arrive at your final score for that section.
How is the GRE Test scored?

Each of the multiple-choice sections is scored on a scale of 200 to 800. The average scores for the GRE are about 470 for Verbal and 570 for Quantitative. The Analytical Writing section is scored on a scale of 0 to 6.
How important are my GRE scores?

Schools vary tremendously in the weights they place on the different factors in the admission process, so be sure to contact the specific schools to which you are applying in order to determine their unique requirements. Some programs weight GRE scores very heavily, and/or have a minimum score for applicants, while other programs consider GRE scores more of a formality. It is important to note that your GRE scores are a major factor in determining your eligibility for financial aid.
How do I pick a test date?

First find out the application deadlines for the graduate schools to which you are applying, then work backwards from your earliest deadline. Build some extra time into your planning process for unexpected delays because you can only take the GRE test once per calendar month. Keep in mind that it can take as long as four weeks for your official scores to arrive at your designated schools. The GRE is offered at testing centers almost every day. Call your local center for details and to book your test. While in theory you could sign up for the GRE test with only two days' notice, don't depend upon this luxury. Call at least one month prior to your desired test date.
When the GRE is conducted in Pakistan?

The GRE is offered at testing centers almost every day in Pakistan. Call your local center for details and to book your test. While in theory you could sign up for the GRE with only two days' notice, don't depend upon this luxury. Call at least one month prior to your desired test date.
Where the GRE is conducted in Pakistan?

There are two local offices that conduct the GRE in Pakistan. One is in Karachi and the other is Lahore. The contact numbers of the two are as follows. Global Education Center (Karachi) Ph:021-5823671 LUMS(Lahore University of Management Sciences) Ph:042-5722670-79 What fees are associated with the GRE Test?
The fee to take the GRE test is $115 within the United States, some U.S. Territories, and Puerto Rico. The fee is $140 in all other locations including Pakistan.
What are the GRE Subject Tests?

The GRE Subject Tests are intended to measure your knowledge of specific subject matter. Subject Tests are available in eight disciplines: biochemistry, cell and molecular biology; biology; chemistry; computer science; literature in English; mathematics; physics; and psychology. These tests are given in paper-and-pencil format three times per year, in November, December, and April.
These tests are given separately from the GRE General Test and require additional fees. Check with the graduate schools to which you are applying to determine whether any of these extra tests are required.
Where can I get more information about the GRE Test?

You can contact the Educational Testing Service (ETS) at: (800) GRE-CALL (609) 771-7670 or on their website, www.gre.org
GRE PowerPrep Software: (FREE)

Includes two computer-based GRE General Tests, sample analytical writing topics, scored sample essays and reader commentary, test-taking strategies, a math review, and test tutorials.
The General Test:
It measures abilities in verbal, quantitative and analytical fields. 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 The Subject Tests: These measure achievement in specific fields of study. Because of the high correlation between high GRE scores and success in graduate school, many schools require that the applicants take the GRE General Test. (They may also require the applicant to take the appropriate GRE Subject Test.)
GRE Format
Typical Computer-Based GRE General Test

Analytical Writing 1 Issue Task* 45 minutes

Analytical Writing 1 Argument Task* 30 minutes
Verbal 30 30 minutes
Quantitative 28 45 minutes
Unscored** Varies Varies
Research*** Varies Varies

* For the Issue task, two essay topics are presented and you choose one. The Argument task does not present a choice of topics; instead one topic is presented.

** An unidentified unscored section may be included and may appear in any order after the Analytical Writing section. It is not counted as part of your score.
*** An identified research section that is not scored may be included, and it is always at the end of the test.

Paper-Based General Test Content and Structure

The paper-based General Test is composed of Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning and Analytical Writing sections. In addition, one unidentified unscored section may be included, and this section can appear in any position in the test after the Analytical Writing Section. Questions in the unscored section are being tested for possible use in future tests, and answers will not count toward your scores.

Total testing time is up to 3 3/4 hours. The directions at the beginning of each section specify the total number of questions in the section and the time allowed for the section.


The Analytical Writing section is always first. For the Issue task, two topics will be presented and you will choose one. The Argument task does not present a choice of topics; instead one topic will be presented.


The Verbal and Quantitative sections may appear in any order, including an unidentified Verbal or Quantitative unscored section. Treat each section presented during your test as if it counts.


Typical Paper-Based General Test


Analytical Writing 1 Issue Task* 45 minutes

Analytical Writing 1 Argument Task* 30 minutes
Verbal (2 sections) 38 per section 30 minutes per section
Quantitative (2 sections) 30 per section 30 minutes per section
Unscored** Varies 30 minutes

*For the Issue task, two essay topics will be presented and you will choose one. The Argument task does not present a choice of topics; instead, one topic will be presented.

** An unidentified unscored section may be included and may appear in any order after the Analytical Writing section. It is not counted as part of your score.

Modified Versions of Verbal and Quantitative Questions

The test you take may include questions that are modified versions of published questions or of questions you have already seen on an earlier section of the test. Some modifications are substantial; others are less apparent.

Thus, even if a question appears to be similar to a question you have already seen, it may in fact be a different question and may also have a different correct answer. You can be assured of doing your best on the test you take by paying careful attention to the wording of each question as it appears in your test.


The GRE Program is currently investigating the feasibility of reusing questions that have been published in GRE practice materials. As part of that investigation, you may see questions from these materials on a test you take.
GRE (Local) by NTS

GRE (Graduate Record Examination) is a test for determining the capability and suitability of a student for postgraduate studies. A lot of universities in advanced countries require this as an admission requirement. HEC conducts an examination similar to the one conducted by ETS here in Pakistan through National Testing Service (NTS). This is commonly termed as local GRE (GAT).The format of the test is old GRE general pattern prior to October 2002. This includes an analytical section, a verbal section and a quantitative section. The duration of the test will be 2 hours. Candidates may refer to GRE books available for old pattern for sample papers. A sample is available on the HEC website.
The test will be conducted in selected major cities of Pakistan. Candidates will be called to the center as per requirement of HEC. This will be indicated on the admit card of the candidate.
The General Test is intended to measure verbal, quantitative, and analytical skills. Although a brief review will not dramatically change the abilities you have acquired over years, use of this site may help you evaluate your ability level and identify areas for further study before you take the General Test. As the competition is growing intense, you need a through preparation.
GRE (GAT by NTS) Format


The GRE General Test measures certain developed verbal, quantitative, and analytical abilities that are important for academic achievement. In doing so, the test necessarily reflects the opportunities and efforts that have contributed to the development of those abilities.
The General Test is only one of several means of evaluating likely success in graduate school. It make it possible to compare students with different backgrounds. A GRE (HEC) score of 50/100, for example, has the same meaning whether earned by a student at a small, arts college or by a student at a large public university.
Test Format
Total Questions (MCQs) = 100
Total Test Time = 120 Minutes (2 Hours)

Test Type: Paper Based (GAT- General)
Test Contents

English (Verbal) Section 30 Questions (35 Minutes)
Analytical Section 40 Questions (50 Minutes)
Quantitative Section 30 Questions (35 Minutes)
