GRE Diagnostic Quizzes

GRE Diagnostic Quizzes by Magoosh

Need a quick “diagnosis” of your GRE level? Try the Magoosh GRE Diagnostic Quizzes to determine your current abilities in both Quant and Verbal. You should allow yourself 17 minutes for the Quant Diagnostic and 15 minutes for the Verbal Diagnostic. (For a full-length practice test, check out Magoosh’s GRE Practice Test!)

GRE Diagnostic Quizzes: What You Need to Know

To take these Diagnostics, it’s best that you already be familiar with GRE basic question formats. In Quant, you’ll see Problem Solving questions (multiple choice), Numeric Entry (you enter your own answer), Quantitative Comparison (determining which quantity of two is bigger), and Multiple Answer (more than one multiple-choice answer can be correct.)

Verbal also has some questions that will look familiar (Reading Comprehension), but the way it tests logic, Sentence Equivalence, and Text Completions are pretty unique. Getting familiar with these question formats before you take the GRE Diagnostic quiz will help you determine your actual current ability level.

You can read about the formats of both sections on this blog or in the GRE Official Guide.

      Hi Naureen,

      If you haven’t taken the test before, you can use this diagnostic test as a baseline and see how you improve over time. You can also track your progress through practice tests. As you study, you will likely see your scores improve!
