The 30 minutes of time allocated to write the Issue and Argument task respectively must be managed effectively. Use the first 5 to 6 minutes in order to read, analyse, and plan the essay. The next 20 to 22 minutes to type write the essay and the last 2 to 4 minutes to read, review and correct any minor mistakes before submitting the essay. Therefore the actual writing will be only 20 to 22 minutes. Students are expected to write anywhere from 200 to 300 words with a proper Introduction and Conclusion. Ultimately how effectively the student analyses the topic, organizes the essay, uses appropriate examples to support the reasons will determine the scores awarded to the essays. Each essay is timed for 30 minutes. The students cannot add time nor save time from next essay. The moment 30th minute is on the screen, the computer will exit the student from the Issue task and present the Argument task. 


The ' Analysis of an Issue ' is the first essay a student writes on the Analytical Writing section. Every topic raises an Issue and the student is expected to take a stand and present an argument convincing the reader of his viewpoint. It is, therefore, essentially a persuasive essay. The student is expected to present his/her perspective, give valid reasons to support his view, use appropriate examples and illustrations in order to support his argument. Most topics will expect you to discuss the topic from both sides before reaching a final opinion. The topics (around 100) which are published on the GRE website, ( are on general topics and students are expected to have some knowledge of these topics. A good reading habit will help enormously while writing these essays. 


  1. Read the topics before you go to write the test.
  2. Discuss these topics with fellow GRE students or your mentors to gather more knowledge on them.
  3. Choose appropriate examples from your experiences and reading that can be used to support your view point.
  4. Organize your essay into a proper Introduction, Body and Conclusion.
  5. Structure your essay according to the instruction given in the second paragraph of the Issue topic.
  6. Write under untimed conditions initially and then type under timed conditions.
  7. Get your essays evaluated by an expert.


The ' Analysis of an Argument ' is the second essay a student writes on the Analytical section. Every topic on this essay makes an argument. The student has to write a critical assessment as to how far the Claim made or Conclusion reached by the argument is logically sound.

In order to write the Critique of the argument, the student must know:

  • how to analyse the argument into its components of Conclusion/Claim, Premises and Assumptions.
  • how to weaken the argument's conclusion
  • how to strengthen the argument's conclusion
  • how to organize and structure the essay according to the instructions given by the test maker after every topic.


  1. Read the argument topics in the pool given by the test maker.
  2. Learn to analyse –weaken-strengthen at least 50 topics from the pool.
  3. Write essays on at least 20 topics under both untimed and timed conditions.
  4. Get your essays evaluated by an expert.

Students taking the GRE test should never under estimate the importance of Analytical writing score. Prior planning and preparation is a must in order to do well on the test day.
