GRE® revised General Test = GRE® General Test
You may notice throughout our website that the GRE revised General Test has been shortened to the GRE General Test. Nothing else has changed, just the name. Keep in mind that it may take some time to see this name change everywhere, including on the advisor kit and test preparation materials. Some research and reference documents may even permanently refer to "revised," but rest assured that GRE General Test = GRE revised General Test. It's that simple.
