GRE 2024 Computer-Based Test Result

All the sections of the test equally contribute to the total score. A raw test score is computed once the test is complete. A raw test is mainly the number of questions the candidate has answered correctly. The process of equating difficult questions is taken into account, and the raw scores for both sections are converted into scaled scores on a 130-170 scale.

The verbal and Quantitative parts of the test are section adaptive, i.e., the candidate's performance in the first section will determine the question's level of difficulty in the other section. For example, suppose the candidate performs better in the first section. In that case, the question will get difficult in other sections, and correctly answering the difficult questions will raise the score.

GRE 2024 Paper-Based Test Result

The raw score is computed for the Verbal and Quantitative Reasoning sections of the paper-based test. With the process of equating, the raw scores are converted into scaled scores, ranging from 130-170, similar to the computer-based test. The raw scores are the number of questions that were answered correctly.

Understanding the GRE Test Score

GRE score has been considered for a large range of graduate programs, but candidates are unable to analyze which range of scores is good. So, an NGO providing educational services came up with a specific set of scores at various sections, which has been considered a good GRE score. GRE General Test score includes

  • A range of 130-170 in one-point increments for the main sections of Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning.
  • The overall range is 260 to 340.
  • For Analytical Writing, it ranges from 0-6 in half-point increments.

GRE-ETS takes approximately 10–15 days after the test date to report the scores to the recipient universities. The official score report appears on your ETS account five weeks after taking the test for the offline mode.

GRE score validity

Once the score is obtained, it stays valid for five years, proving 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 2024 Score for Subject Tests
