What You Will Find on the Test

The GRE Analytical Writing test differs from both the SAT and ACT in that there are no multiple choice questions. The answers to both the Issue Argument sections are composed completely by the test taker. According to the Educational Testing Service, which creates and administers the GRE, answers are judged based on how well you:

■ consider the complexities and implications of the issue

■ organize, develop, and express your ideas on the issue

■ identify and analyze important features of the argument

■ organize, develop, and express your critique of the argument

■ support your ideas with relevant reasons and examples

■ control the elements of standard written English

The Issue section provides two opinions on topics of general interest. You must select one and then respond to it from any perspective. Your response must be supported with sound explanations, evidence, and examples. In the next section, you are given an argument to analyze. Rather than giving your opinion on the subject, you must explain how the argument is either logically sound or not.
