Getting Your GRE Subject Test Scores

What scores are reported?

Every GRE Subject Test yields a total score on a 200 to 990 score scale, in 10-point increments. Each of the individual test scales occupies only a portion of the 200 to 990 score range.

The Physics and Psychology Tests also yield subscores on a 20–99 score scale, in 1-point increments. Each of the individual test subscore scales occupies only a portion of the 20 to 99 score range.

When and how will I get my scores?

Your official GRE Subject Test score(s) will be available in your ETS account approximately 5 weeks after your test date. You’ll receive an email notification from ETS when they are available.
