Scores

GRE® test scores are valid for five years after the testing year in which you tested (July 1–June 30). Currently, scores earned from July 1, 2009, to the present are available.

Scores Reported

In late 2014, ETS will make test-taker photos and essay responses on the Analytical Writing section available to designated score recipients as part of an institutional portal that we are launching. Photos and Analytical Writing essay responses of all individuals who report their scores to institutions on or after July 1, 2014, will be included in the portal when it is launched. In the portal, the photo and essay responses from each revised General Test administration you select from your five-year reportable history will be made available as part of your score record to the institutions you designated to receive your scores on or after July 1, 2014.

GRE® revised General Test (tests taken on or after August 1, 2011)

Section Score Scale
Verbal Reasoning 130–170, in 1 point increments
Quantitative Reasoning 130–170, in 1 point increments
Analytical Writing 0–6, in half point increments

If no questions are answered for a specific measure (e.g., Verbal Reasoning), then you will receive a No Score (NS) for that measure.

GRE® General Test (tests taken prior to August 1, 2011)

Section Score Scale*
Verbal Reasoning 200–800, in 10-point increments
Quantitative Reasoning 200–800, in 10-point increments
Analytical Writing 0–6, in half-point increments

If no questions are answered for a specific measure (e.g., Verbal Reasoning), then you will receive a No Score (NS) for that measure.

*Score reports include Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning scores on the prior 200–800 scales as well as estimated Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning scores on the 130–170 score scales.

ScoreSelect® Option

The ScoreSelect® option lets you decide which test scores to send to the institutions you designate. As part of your four free score reports, you can send scores from your most recent test administration or from all administrations of the General Test taken in the last five years. After test day, you can send scores from your Most Recent, All or Any specific test administration(s) for a fee when ordering Additional Score Reports. Just remember, scores for a test administration must be reported in their entirety.

The ScoreSelect option helps you approach test day with more confidence, knowing you can send the scores you feel show your personal best. It 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. For more information on your score reporting options, see Sending Your Scores.
