The writing section is graded on a scale of 0-6, in half-point increments. The essays are written on a computer using a word processing program specifically designed by ETS. The program allows only basic computer functions and does not contain a spell-checker or other advanced features. Each essay is scored by at least two readers on a six-point holistic scale. If the two scores are within one point, the average of the scores is taken. If the two scores differ by more than a point, a third reader examines the response.

Computer Adaptive Test

The GRE Test is a CAT (Computer Adaptive Test). This means that the computer adapts the level of the questions according to the test-taker's ability. The first question will be always of Medium level difficulty.  Based on the response given for the first question, second question level of difficulty will be decided. For Example if First Question (Medium) is correct than the second question will be Hard, if First Question is wrong than the Second Question is Easy.  So, at every stage, the computer tailors the test to the examinee's level. In this examination, the score depends both on the number of questions attempted and the number of correct responses.

How marks are awarded?

The questions are graded into 5 categories ranging from the easy to the hard category. More points are awarded for getting the harder questions right. You are penalized for not completing the test. Hence, your score depends on your accuracy, the difficulty level of the questions and the number of questions you attempted. Please remember that once you have confirmed your answer to a question you can't go back to a question and change your answer, so answer carefully.

Other Notes:

  1. There is a chance that some students may get an additional section called Dummy or Experimental.  This can be either Quant or Verbal.  Although the experimental section does not count toward the test-taker's score, it is unidentified and appears identical to the real (scored) part of the test.
  2. Between every two sections, an optional break of 10 minutes will be given for the student.
  3. In the exam center, 4 white sheets will be provided for rough usage.
  4. Sum of scores of Quant and Verbal gives the total score of GRE as (400 - 1600).  Students will get this score immediately after their completion of exam.
  5. Apart from above score, AWA score will be sent to the student separately through post within 18 working days from the date of completion of exam. The average of the scores of Issue and Argument will be the final AWA score.
