The GRE® Advantage

Only the GRE® General Test has features that let you apply more of your own test-taking strategies. Within each section, you can:

  • Preview and review questions
  • Skip questions and go back
  • Change answers
  • Use an on-screen calculator for the Quantitative Reasoning section

This is great news, because recent data shows that most GRE® test takers who changed answers went from wrong to right and boosted their scores. And all test takers who skipped a question and later completed it saw the same or better scores.
