The length of the GRE pattern varies depending on whether you have opted for the paper-delivered test or the computer-delivered test.
The computer-delivered test lasts for **3 hours and 45 minutes. **
You will be allotted specific time slots to complete each section.
In the analytical writing section, you will be given 30 minutes to analyze and write about an issue and 30 minutes to analyze an argument and write about it.
For the 2 verbal reasoning sections, you will be given 30 minutes to complete each.
For the quantitative reasoning sections, you will have 35 minutes to complete each. The remaining time can be used to attempt the experimental section.
- The paper-delivered test lasts for 3 hours and 30 minutes.
- As was the case with computer-delivered tests, you will be given 30 minutes each for the two parts of the analytical writing section.
However, for the verbal reasoning section and the quantitative reasoning section, you will be given an additional five minutes for each part. Hence, you will be given 35 minutes each, to answer the two verbal reasoning questions and 40 minutes each, to answer the quantitative reasoning questions.
