Introducing the New ScoreSelectSM Option
The GRE® Program continues to make enhancements to provide added value to institutions that accept GRE scores and to encourage more people to pursue graduate or business school. In 2011, we introduced the GRE® revised General Test, the largest change in GRE history. That launch included the new test-taker friendly design, which received enthusiastic feedback from test takers worldwide. Now, the ScoreSelect option along with our new free test preparation materials continue to help people take a decisive step toward graduate or business school.
The new ScoreSelect option lets GRE test takers decide which scores to send to the institutions they designate. Now, they can approach test day with more confidence knowing they can send the scores they feel reflect their personal best.
Here's how it works:
On test day, when viewing their scores at the test center*, test takers can select the:
- ScoreSelect Most Recent option — Send their scores from their current test
- ScoreSelect All option — Send their scores from all test administrations in the last
five years (FREE).
Test takers can decide which option to use for each of their four FREE score reports.
After test day, test takers can send Additional Score Reports for a fee by selecting from the following:
- ScoreSelect Most Recent option — Send their scores from their most recent test administration.
- ScoreSelect All option — Send their scores from all test administrations in the last five years.
- ScoreSelect Any option — Send their scores from one OR many test administrations in the last five years.
Scores for a test administration must be reported in their entirety. Regardless of whether the test taker chooses the Most Recent, All or Any option, he or she will select specific test administration dates so that their scores are all from the same testing session. Institutions will receive score reports that show the scores that test takers selected to send to them. There will be no special indication if other GRE tests have been taken.
The new ScoreSelect option is available for both the GRE revised General Test and GRE Subject Tests, and can be used by anyone with reportable scores from the last five years.
*Individuals taking the paper-based GRE revised General Test or a GRE Subject Test will select their options prior to test day.
Helping Test Takers Prepare
As we introduce the new ScoreSelect option, we also continue to offer test preparation resources specifically for educators who help prospective test takers. And if you advise students, it's important to encourage them to use the FREE and low-cost test preparation materials provided by ETS, so they can feel ready on test day. See Preparing Students.
