Scores

For individuals testing on or after July 1, 2016, GRE® test scores are valid for five years after your test administration date. For example, scores for a test taken on September 17, 2016, are reportable through September 16, 2021.

For individuals who tested between August 1, 2011, and June 30, 2016, GRE test scores are valid for five years after the testing year in which you tested (as indicated in the GRE® Information and Registration Bulletin from that testing year). For example, scores for a test taken on April 16, 2016, are reportable through June 30, 2021.

GRE scores earned in July 2011 are reportable until July 31, 2016.

Scores Reported

Each GRE® Subject Test yields a total score on a 200–990 score scale, in 10-point increments, although the score range for any particular Subject Test is usually smaller. Subscores are reported for the Biochemistry, Cell and Molecular Biology; Biology; and Psychology Tests on a 20–99 score scale, in one-point increments, although the range for any particular Subject Test subscore is usually smaller.

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 a Subject 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. 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® 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.
