The Revised GRE exam is different in structure and length from the GRE exam of the past. Since the GRE exam changed on August 1, 2011, it's important to know the difference between the two tests. Here's what the Revised GRE exam structure and length looks like on the Computer-Based Exam.
- The Analytical Writing section is always be first, but the other sections can appear in any order.

- There is one 10-minute break following the third section of the test, and 1-minute breaks between every other section.
