GRE Overview


GRE The Graduate Record Examination General (GRE) Test measures verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning, critical thinking, and analytical writing skills that are not related to any specific field of study. Parliament's GRE Tutoring program equips students with the tools to master each section of the exam. We have comprehensive tutors as well as section-specialists that focus on one key area of the test that students wish to improve on. Your GRE scores provide common measures for comparing the qualifications of applicants and aid in evaluating grades and recommendations. Learn more from the official GRE sponsors at

What is the GRE Exam Content?

The GRE is taken on a computer, though paper tests are offered up to three times a year in areas of the world where computer-delivered testing is not available. The test content is adjusted to each student's performance. If a student is answering the questions correctly, the questions will get progressively more difficult. If a student answers a question incorrectly, an easier question will follow. Your GRE score accounts for both difficulty of questions asked and raw number answered correctly. The three section of the GRE (Verbal, Quantitave, and Analytical Writing) are each scored separately. The Verbal and Quantitative sections are given a curved score between 200-800. The Analytical Writing section is given a score between 0-6. Further, each exam is assigned a percentile rank, demonstrating how a test-taker performance compares to the other examinees.

At the completion of the GRE exam, students are given the option to view their score or cancel their score. Students do not have the option to view their cancelled score.

Experimental or Research Section

An unidentified unscored section that does not count toward your score may be included and may appear in any order after the Analytical Writing section. Questions in the unscored section are being tried out either for possible use in future tests or to ensure that scores on new editions of the test are comparable to scores from earlier editions.

An identified research section that does not count toward your score may be included in place of the unscored section. The research section will always appear at the end of the test. Questions in this section are included for research purposes. There is one unscored experimental section on the GRE. The section may be Quantitave, Analytical Writing, or Verbal
