The Analytical Writing Assessment (AWA) consists of two 30-minute sections, the Analysis of Issue essay and the Analysis of Argument essay. You will receive a grade from 1 to 6, which will be sent with your GRE scores.
The good news is that the AWA can be beaten.The essay topics are available for you to review beforehand. The structures for the AWA answers are simple and may be learned. In addition, while much GRE preparation may appear "useless" and without any merit beyond test day, the skills, reasoning tools, and techniques you learn for the AWA may be applied to any essay or persuasive writing. These skills will help you throughout business school and beyond.
800score has graded thousands of essays from GRE candidates and we have an unparalleled knowledge of where students go wrong.
Here are some tips before we get started:
- Grammar and spelling is, by-and-large, less important than structure and content. Focus on structure and your argument formation.
- Take plenty of timed practice tests on a computer. Our sample essays on the site are designed for you to take timed practice essays and be evaluated.
- Do not procrastinate AWA preparation. Students tend to put off the AWA until it is too late and then they cannot adequately prepare.
