Getting Your GRE General Test Scores

What scores are reported?

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.


When will I get my scores?

Your official GRE General Test scores will be available in your ETS account 8–10 days after your test date. You’ll receive an email from ETS when they are available.

ETS will also send an official Institution Score Report to the score recipients you designated on test day at that time.

What’s in my official score report?

Accessible in your ETS account, your official GRE Test-taker Score Report is intended only for your information and personal records. It contains your:

  • contact information (name, phone number and email)
  • date of birth
  • gender
  • intended graduate major
  • test date(s)
  • GRE test score(s) and the associated percentile ranks
  • authorized score recipients or fellowship sponsors and the scores reported to those institutions
  • cumulative record of scores reported within the last 5 years

See a sample Test-taker Score Report (PDF)

If you wish to have a paper copy, you can print one from your ETS account.


What information is sent to institutions?

Official score reports sent to the institutions you designate include:

  • your contact information (name, address, phone number, email)
  • date of birth
  • gender
  • your intended graduate major field
  • the GRE test dates and score(s) you choose to report with the ScoreSelect® option and the associated percentile ranks

They don’t include:

  • any information concerning the other score recipients you have chosen
  • any scores you’ve chosen not to report
  • any indication that you’ve taken other GRE tests

Photos and essay responses from each GRE General Test administration you select from your 5-year reportable history will be available to your score recipients in the ETS® Data Manager as part of your score record.


How long are my scores reportable?

GRE scores are reportable for 5 years following your test date. See the exact date your scores will be reportable based on your test date.
