The GRE Analytical Writing section is one of the components of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), which is a standardized test commonly required for admission to graduate programs in various fields. The Analytical Writing section aims to assess your ability to critically analyze and articulate complex ideas, as well as your ability to communicate effectively in writing.

The Analytical Writing section consists of two tasks:

  1. Analyze an Issue: In this task, you’ll be presented with a statement or claim and asked to analyze and evaluate its strengths and weaknesses, and to present your own perspective on the issue. You’ll need to provide reasons and examples to support your position.

  2. Analyze an Argument: In this task, you’ll be given an argument to analyze. You’ll need to assess the logical soundness of the argument, identify any underlying assumptions, evaluate the evidence provided, and discuss how well the argument is reasoned.

Each task is timed, with 30 minutes allocated for completing each task. Your responses are graded on a scale of 0 to 6, with half-point increments. These scores are then averaged to provide your overall score for the Analytical Writing section.
