Score Reporting

Three scores are reported on the GRE® General Test:

SectionScore 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

Any section in which the test taker answers no questions at all is reported as a No Score (NS).

Approved GRE® score users can also view test takers' Analytical Writing responses, which are authentic samples of an applicant's writing, in the ETS® Data Manager.

With the ScoreSelect® option, test takers who retake a GRE test can decide which GRE scores from the last five years to send to designated institutions. Institutions receive score reports that show the scores that test takers selected to send to them. There are no special notations to indicate whether or not other GRE tests have been taken.

Receiving Scores

Scores on the computer-delivered GRE General Test are available approximately 10–15 days after the test date. Scores on the paper-delivered GRE General Test are available approximately five weeks after the test date.

For tests taken on or after July 1, 2016, scores are reportable for five years following the individual's test date. For tests taken prior to July 1, 2016, scores are reportable for five years following the testing year in which the individual tested.

The fastest way to receive scores is through the ETS Data Manager, a secure web-based system that provides fast, convenient score report viewing/printing capabilities. It is updated twice per week and scores are available in the system for as long as scores are valid. Learn more about the ETS Data Manager.

My program no longer wants to receive paper score reports. How do I discontinue paper score reporting?

If you would like ETS to stop sending paper reports to your institution, please have your school's designated central GRE score recipient or the Dean of the Graduate School contact ETS Code Control at codecontrol@ets.org.
