The GRE Subject Tests report one total score on a 200–990 score scale, in 10-point increments, although the score range for any particular Subject Test is usually smaller.
Physics and Psychology tests
For tests taken beginning in September 2023, percent correct scores will be reported for the Physics and Psychology Tests on a range of 0–100. Percent correct scores from one test edition cannot be compared with percent correct scores on other test editions because these scores are not equated. For example, a percent correct score of 80 on Classical Mechanics from one Physics Test edition is not equivalent to a percent correct score of 80 on Classical Mechanics from another Physics Test edition.
For tests taken prior to September 2023, subscores are reported for the Physics and Psychology Tests on a 20–99 score scale, in 1-point increments. The subscore scales for each of these tests occupy only a portion of the 20 to 99 score range.
The ScoreSelect® option
With the ScoreSelect® option, test takers who retake a GRE Subject Test can decide which GRE scores from the last 5 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 other GRE tests have been taken.
Scores on the GRE Subject Tests will be reported on the following dates and are reportable for 5 years following the individual’s test date.
