The GRE Quantitative Reasoning section is one of the three main sections of the Graduate Record Examination (GRE), a standardized test widely used for admission to graduate programs in various fields. The Quantitative Reasoning section aims to assess your ability to reason quantitatively, solve problems using mathematical concepts, and interpret quantitative data.

The GRE Quantitative Reasoning section consists of two types of questions:

  1. Quantitative Comparison: In this type of question, you’ll be presented with two quantities and asked to compare them. You’ll need to determine whether one quantity is greater than the other, whether the quantities are equal, or if the relationship cannot be determined based on the information provided.

  2. Problem Solving: These questions require you to solve mathematical problems typically encountered in undergraduate-level mathematics courses. They cover various topics including arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and data analysis.

The GRE Quantitative Reasoning section is computer-adaptive, meaning that the difficulty of the questions you receive depends on your performance on previous questions. Each section contains 20 questions, and you’ll have 35 minutes to complete each section.

Scores on the Quantitative Reasoning section range from 130 to 170 in one-point increments. Your score is based on the number of questions you answer correctly, as well as the difficulty level of those questions.
