The GRE General Test measures verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, critical thinking, and
analytical writing skills that have been acquired over a long period of time and that are not
related to any specific field of study. Prospective graduate applicants take the General Test.
GRE test scores are used by admissions or fellowship panels to supplement undergraduate
records and other qualifications for graduate study. The scores provide common measures for
comparing the qualifications of applicants and aid in evaluating grades and recommendations.
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, and 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, and solve
problems in a quantitative setting.


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, and control the elements of
standard written English.
