The GRE is required at most graduate schools, and more business schools are requiring the test to be completed upon admission. It’s composed of an analytical section that takes 60 minutes to complete with two essays included. Two different verbal reasoning sections are included, which each take 30 minutes to complete. Two quantitative reasoning sections with 70 minutes provided are also present on the test. Test-takers must also complete an experimental section for 30 to 35 minutes with the option of verbal or math available.
The GRE test is available as a computer adaptive, sectioned exam. Paper versions are available, but only in certain countries where computer exams are not offered. The scoring ranges from 130 to 170 with one-point increments for questions. Similar to the GMAT, the GRE test scores are valid for up to five years.
