GRE Syllabus

What is the GRE?

The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) is a standardised test that is accepted for graduate admissions at thousands of graduate and business schools across the world.  After a major overhaul of the test itself in August 2011, the new pattern GRE lets you skip questions, change your answers and control which questions you want to tackle first. It is section-adaptive, so the performance on the first verbal and math sections determine the difficulty of the second sections presented to a test taker. So let us take a look at what the GRE Syllabus 2017-18 looks like!
