 The GRE® General Test gives you more opportunities for success. Whether you are considering graduate school or business school, or  still deciding what to do, you only need to take the one test accepted  by thousands of graduate and business schools worldwide (PDF), the GRE®  General Test. It is the only graduate-level admissions test that lets  you skip questions and go back, change your answers and have control to  tackle the questions you want to answer first.

Plus, the GRE General Test (formerly the GRE® revised General Test) provides the ScoreSelect® option,  which means you can take a GRE test now or again in the future, and  only send schools your best set of scores. Best of all, you have five  years to decide how to use any of your scores. Just knowing you have that option will help you feel more confident on test day.

One Test for Graduate and Business School. More Opportunities for Success.

Getting an advanced degree can create many opportunities. In fact, recent data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics and The Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development illustrates how education pays in higher earnings and lower unemployment rates. Whether you are planning to go to graduate school or business school —  or just exploring your options — you are taking an important step  toward your future. It is a smart move to show schools your best and  with the GRE General Test, you can! The GRE General Test helps you do your best on test day. With the GRE General Test, you  decide which scores to send to schools. If you feel you didn't do your  best on test day, that's okay. You can retake the test and then send only the scores you want schools to see. It's all part of the ScoreSelect® option, only available with GRE tests. Plus, the GRE General Test is the only admissions test for graduate  or business school that lets you skip questions within a section, go  back and change answers, and have control to tackle the questions within  a section you want to answer first. The GRE General Test features question types that closely reflect the kind of thinking you'll do in graduate or business school.  

  • Verbal Reasoning — Measures your  ability to analyze and evaluate written material and synthesize  information obtained from it, analyze relationships among component  parts of sentences and recognize relationships among words and concepts.
  • Quantitative Reasoning — Measures problem-solving ability using basic concepts of arithmetic, algebra, geometry and data analysis.
  • Analytical Writing — Measures  critical thinking and analytical writing skills, specifically your  ability to articulate and support complex ideas clearly and effectively.
