How long should my GRE essays be?

When time expires on this segment, you should have a draft of your essay. A 500-word essay can be built from four paragraphs of 125 words each or 30-35 sentences of 15-20 words each (it is not necessarily wrong to have paragraphs of uneven length, but there should be some balance).

What happens if you don’t answer a question on the GRE?

When taking the GRE General Test, you are free to skip questions that you might have difficulty answering. Your Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning scores will be determined by the number of questions you answer correctly. Nothing is subtracted from a score if you answer a question incorrectly.

How do I read my GRE scores?

Your percentile rank indicates how your GRE scores compare to those of other test takers. The 50th percentile represents the average, or mean, GRE score. The mean for the quantitative section is 151.91 (or 152); for verbal, it’s 150.75 (151); and for analytical writing, it’s 3.61. Those are, of course, average scores.
