Full length GRE Practice Tests

Note: The current Magoosh platform has evolved from this time. Our practice tests now have the experimental section that the real GRE does, which is not a feature mentioned below from 2012. When we make changes to the platform, you automatically get those benefits! Bonus: If you’re looking for a free practice test on this blog, check out our GRE practice test!

I’m very excited to announce that Magoosh now has full-length GRE practice tests—and a free diagnostic GRE here! Previously, we provided instructions on how you could create your own mock tests for the GRE. Since then, our team has been hard at work making it easier for you to take a full-length practice test.

How do I access the GRE practice tests?

Improve your GRE score with Magoosh.

First, you need to be a paying member of our GRE prep product. Unfortunately, the tests only work with full Premium access which consists of Math and Verbal – they don’t work with a Math only or Verbal only plan.

Once you are logged into your Magoosh account, you’ll see a “Take a practice test” link on your Dashboard. I’ve highlighted the link in the image below:
Take a GRE practice test

After you click on the link you’ll see instructions. Note that our practice test does not include the writing section or the experimental section. The test now includes the writing sections and the experimental section. However, the writing section will not be graded. On test day, you’ll face 2 writing tasks followed by 5 additional sections: 2 math, 2 verbal, and 1 math or verbal that is ungraded. Unfortunately, the 5 sections can appear in any order and you don’t know which one is the ungraded, experimental one. On the Magoosh test, you’ll face 4 sections: 2 math and 2 verbal in any order, but all are graded.

Are these new questions?

We’ve recently added over 100 questions to the Magoosh product, however the questions in the test are the same ones that you can access through regular practice or quizzes in Magoosh. When you take a practice test, we will first give you questions that you have not yet answered. However, if you have answered many of the questions in the product you may see some repeats. Unfortunately, it’s very difficult to create GRE-like questions and we want to make sure that Magoosh continues to provide you with the highest quality questions – so it’s not trivial for us to add more questions. But we are confident that we provide enough practice to help you improve your score, and that the questions you’ll see on Magoosh are some of the best GRE practice questions.

How many practice tests does Magoosh have?

This is a tricky question, because we take questions from the existing product, so the number could vary depending on how many questions you want to save for other practice. In general, we recommend taking at most 2-3 practice tests with Magoosh and using the other questions for quizzes and more targeted practice.

How accurate is the score estimate?

We’ve done our best to mimic the adaptive nature of the GRE and to provide accurate score estimates – they are based on past customers’ actual scores. However, we suggest using the score estimate as a general guideline of your performance rather than an actual score that you’ll receive on test day.

How do I review past tests?

If you would like to review a test that you have already taken, just click the “Take a practice test” link and in the bottom left of the next page you’ll see a button “See Past Results” from which you can review any of your past tests.


As of 2017, you can also review our GRE practice tests in our GRE Prep App! Available for iPhone and Android, this free app allows you to access all of your premium Magoosh resources on your phone.

    Does full length test include experimental section also ?

      Hi Yash,

      Yes! Our full-length tests include an experimental section that will not be counted towards your final score. Just like in the real test, you won’t know which section is experimental until the end of the test 🙂

    Hi there,

    If I purchase the full access Magoosh program, how many times can I take the 3 practice tests? Is there a diagnostic test as well? Thanks!

    • Magoosh Test Prep Expert
      Magoosh Test Prep Expert November 19, 2016 at 3:27 pm #

      Our three practice tests can be taken multiple times. We don’t have a diagnostic test per se, but we have lots of diagnostic tools. Our diagnostic tools include quizzes that go with the video lesson modules, custom practice question sets, and a statistics-based score predictor tool.

    Can we take practice tests with extra time? if we are granted extra time on the real test?

    • Magoosh Test Prep Expert
      Magoosh Test Prep Expert October 23, 2016 at 10:46 am #

      Hi Natalie,

      Using the practice test function, we unfortunately cannot adjust the timing of the Magoosh exam at this time.

  4. Tasmia Rahman August 30, 2016 at 6:01 pm #

    Hello, what I understand is if I buy the premium account I will get to have 3 mock tests along with the customized practice tests. My question is-if I take those 3 mock tests and want to try them once more will I be able to do that? What I mean is will I be able to retake those 3 mock tests?
    Thanks is advance

      Magoosh Test Prep Expert August 31, 2016 at 8:05 pm #

      Hi Tasmia,

      Happy to help 🙂 Our full-length tests are pulled from our general pool of 1100+ questions, which means that you can take 2-3 tests before you start to see repeated questions. We generally recommend that students complete only a few practice tests and then use the rest of the questions for more targeted practice, but you can take as many practice tests as you want! There is no limit, and even if you take more than three tests, each test will be a unique combination of questions (i.e. you won’t be re-doing the same questions in the same order). And if you finish all of our questions, you can re-set your stats and take as many more tests as your heart desires 🙂

      Yes, for our Magoosh GRE Premium subscribers, we provide three full-length practice tests, and quite a few additional practice questions in addition to our mock tests.

      • manish July 18, 2018 at 6:04 am #

        can we buy magoosh test series alone without video lessons?

        • Magoosh Test Prep Expert
          Magoosh Test Prep Expert July 19, 2018 at 10:01 am #

          Our practice test questions and our video lessons are very integrated, so we don’t sell them separately.

  6. Terry Ta November 12, 2015 at 2:09 pm #

    The premium plan description says I can take up to 3 full-length practice tests. Does that mean I won’t be able to take practice tests once I’ve used up all 3? Can I re-take the practice tests?

    • Dani Lichliter
      Dani Lichliter November 12, 2015 at 2:29 pm #

      Hi Terry,
      Great question! We have three full practice tests that simulate the actual exam. You can re-take them if you want. You can also make your own practice tests using our 1000+ practice questions (under the “Practice” tab, click on “Customize Practice”) by setting the time limit and number of questions to match what you will see on various sections of the exam. I hope this is helpful! 🙂
      Best of luck with your studying!

    does magoosh offer any full length free test?

    • Jessica Wan
      Jessica Wan August 21, 2015 at 3:46 pm #

      Hi Saddam!

      You need to be a paying member of Magoosh’s GRE prep to access practice tests. You can take a look at the product here: http://gre.magoosh.com.

      Hope this helps!

  8. Mayank Dawar June 14, 2015 at 12:27 am #

    Can we do the same test again from the same account to see if we make the same mistakes again and again?

  9. Abhignya April 17, 2015 at 2:46 pm #

    How many practice tests can we take in total?…max is 3??

    • Rita Neumann
      Rita Kreig April 20, 2015 at 4:17 pm #

      Hi Abhignya,

      Yes, that’s right. The Magoosh GRE (Premium) prep product can create up to 3 full-length practice tests out of the 1000 practice questions. 🙂

      I hope that helps!


  10. Ryan McDonald August 6, 2014 at 3:07 pm #

    For the Magoosh practice tests, do you need to complete all sections in one sitting or can you take a more extended break than the usual 10 minutes in between sections?

    For example, after completing the first two Verbal/Quantitative Reasoning sections, can I close my browser and take a 30-minute break away from computer then come back and log back in to Magoosh and resume my practice test where I left off?

    • Sharat Akasapu
      Sharat August 7, 2014 at 2:30 pm #

      Hi Ryan– yes you can take a break for however long you’d like and then resume your practice test :). We recommend sticking to the 10 minutes only so you can best simulate test-day conditions!


  11. Pranav September 23, 2013 at 2:56 am #

    Hi Guys,

    Could you help me out with the following issue. I wanted to review a previous full length test on magoosh. How can I do this?

      Happy to help! Click on the Take a practice test link on the Dashboard. You’ll then see an option to View Past Results.

  12. Lori August 15, 2013 at 8:29 pm #

    If we are signed up for the premium prep and want to follow the one-month plan (daily schedule), how would you suggest incorporating the Magoosh mock tests into that plan? I believe only the ETS ones are noted in the plan. I’m planning to retake the GRE next month. I was also previously enrolled in another prep program prior to Magoosh.


  13. Tiger June 29, 2013 at 7:47 am #

    After completing the one full length test, can we retake the test?

    • Bhavin Parikh
      Bhavin June 29, 2013 at 11:30 am #

      Good question! You cannot retake the exact same test, however you can take additional tests. The questions in our test pull from our practice questions, so if you’ve answered a lot of practice questions, you may see a few repeat questions. I hope that helps!

  14. Soumya April 26, 2013 at 7:00 am #


    I have my exam in May 2nd week.
    I want to enroll for Magoosh Practise tests.
    Please let me know the procedure for the same.

    • Bhavin Parikh
      Bhavin April 26, 2013 at 9:34 am #

      Hi Soumya – Our practice tests are available to all Magoosh GRE Premium members. You can sign up here: http://gre.magoosh.com.


  15. Tonya August 22, 2012 at 3:48 pm #

    How much time is given for the practice test? Thanks!

    • Bhavin Parikh
      Bhavin August 23, 2012 at 5:50 pm #

      Hi Tonya,

      Happy to help! For math sections, you have to answer 20 questions in 35 minutes and for verbal questions you have to answer 20 questions in 30 minutes. There are 2 of each section, so that’s 2 hours and 10 minutes total. The actual test will have 1 experimental section (math or verbal) + two 30 minute writing sections, for a total of about 3 hours and 45 minutes.

  16. Sana August 16, 2012 at 12:50 pm #

    How far the practice tests scores a good predictor for the actual GRE?

    • Bhavin Parikh
      Bhavin August 16, 2012 at 3:54 pm #

      Hi Sana – We believe they are fairly accurate, however we suggest using the score estimate as a general guideline on your performance rather than thinking of it as the actual score you’ll receive on test day. Our goal is to put our users through the experience of taking a long computer based test so that the actual GRE experience is a little better.


  17. Holly August 13, 2012 at 10:37 am #

    Wish these were available to those of us only preparing for one half of the test — so we could see an estimated score for just verbal or quantitative performance. It would only add to how great Magoosh has been for my preparation.

    • Bhavin Parikh
      Bhavin August 13, 2012 at 12:14 pm #

      Hi Holly – Thanks for the feedback! We’ve found that fatigue plays a major part in test preparation and feel that our scores won’t be as accurate for students who would be skipping one section entirely – for that reason and several other more technical reasons we don’t offer the full length tests with score estimates to those who only use one section.

      However, you can still set up a custom quiz that mimics the test experience for your section. This article shares more information on how to do that (https://magoosh.com/gre/2011/mock-tests-for-the-new-gre/) And we do provide an estimated score range on your Dashboard based on your overall performance.

      I know that’s not a perfect solution, but I hope it helps.


  18. manu August 9, 2012 at 9:43 pm #

    does the 1 month plan also contain the full length tests?

    • Bhavin Parikh
      Bhavin August 9, 2012 at 11:53 pm #

      Hi Manu – Yes, the 30-day plan does include full length tests. I hope that helps!


      • florid October 27, 2015 at 8:12 am #

        Hi. I have purchased Magoosh 1 month premium package. But I am confused that whether I have 3 full length test or just a single test. I cant see them altogether.

    Hi Bhavin,

    I am a premium member for last 1 month and have already given 3 such tests some until one week back.

    Are the tests which you have mentioned above, somewhat different/new addition or just the same as earlier once?
