- Date of Birth
- Intended Graduate Major
- Test Date(s)
- GRE Test Score(s) and the associated percentile ranks

GRE-ETS takes approximately 10–15 days after the test date to report the scores to the recipient universities. For the offline mode, the official score report appears on your ETS Account five weeks after taking the test.
The GRE score once obtained stays valid for five years which proves to be a standout feature of the GRE test. The applicant can take the next attempt only after 21 days of the previous exam date. Students can take the exam up to five times a year with a gap of 21 days.
GRE Score for Subject Tests
Each subject test will have a total score on a range of 200-990 score scale with a 10-point increment. For Biology and Pschyology tests, subscores are reported on a 20-99 score scale with a one-point increment.
GRE 2020 Percentile Rank
GRE percentile rank is the way the test score is reported in. The percentile rank of the GRE Score indicates the total percentage of examinees that had taken the exam and received a lower score. The percentile ranks for the General Test takers and Subject Test takers are based on all of the scores of the candidates who had taken the test within a recent time period, regardless of when the reported scores were earned.
GRE 2019 Cut-off
ETS-GRE does not have any prescribed cut-off but the universities and business schools accepting the GRE score do have their own individual department-specific and college-specific cut-offs. So you need to check the college conditions regarding their application criteria, and then check whether you have the necessary score to apply to that college. However, ETS-GRE provides the mean score of test takers every year in its information bulletins along with other facts about the test takers.
Additional Score Reports (ASR) for GRE
Additional GRE Score reports are the ones that you request as extras that are apart from the official report sent by the ETS. There are three different ways to order the additional reports which are online, mail and fax. The scores that have been earned on and after 1st July of 2011 are available with the ETS.
The fee charged by the ETS for the Additional Score Reports is $27 per score recipient. Once the candidate has requested for the ASRs they cannot be changed or cancelled or refunded.
