The ScoreSelectSM Option
Show Schools Your Personal Best!
Whether you're taking a GRE® test for the first time or retaking it, the ScoreSelectSM option helps you approach test day with confidence because it lets you decide which GRE scores to send to the schools you designate. Here's how it works:
On test day, when viewing your scores at the test center*, you can choose not to send your scores at this time OR you can select either option below for each of your four FREE score reports:
- Most Recent option — Send your scores from your current test administration.
- All option — Send your scores from all General Test administrations in the last five years.
After test day, you can send additional score reports for a fee and select from these options for each report you'd like to send:
- Most Recent option — Send your scores from your most recent test administration.
- All option — Send your scores from all test administrations in the last five years.
- Any option — Send your scores from one OR as many test administrations as you like from the last five years.
No matter which option you choose,
- You will select by specific test dates, so your scores are all from the same testing session.
- The schools you designate will only see the scores that you selected to send them. There will be no special indication if you have taken additional GRE tests.
ScoreSelect Option Availability
The 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.
Just knowing you have the option to decide which GRE scores to send to institutions should give you added confidence the first time you take the test. However, if you decide you want to take a GRE test again, that's okay. You can do so once every 21 days, up to five times within any continuous rolling 12-month period, depending on test center availability.
To help you do your best on test day, you can start getting ready with free and low-cost test preparation materials for the GRE revised General Test and the GRE Subject Tests — from ETS, the makers of the GRE tests.
More good news! New and expanded test preparation materials for the GRE revised General Test are available now. To learn more about them, sign up for important test-taker news and updates about the GRE revised General Test.
*If you are taking the paper-based GRE revised General Test or a GRE Subject Test, you will select your options prior to test day.
