Unlike most of the competitive test results, the unofficial GRE test scores or GRE results will be known within minutes after completing the test. Candidates can visit the GRE Counselling to check what to do with their test scores and apply to universities. It is important to note that engineering candidates must score higher marks in the Quantitative section, while humanities candidates must score higher in the verbal section.

GRE 2021 Results

The GRE Test Scores will take 10-15 days for the score to appear on the ETS account. The candidates are advised to check the details on the scorecard carefully before sending them to the universities. The GRE 2021 Score report contains the following details:

  • 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 and the scores reported to those institutions
  • The cumulative record of scores reported within the last five years.

But the score report sent to the universities (that are opted earlier during the registration process by the applicant) only includes contact information, intended graduate major, GRE Test Score, and the associated percentile ranks.

If your name has been changed since you last took the test and the score report contains your old name, then you need to consult with the GRE Service for assistance.

GRE 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 completed. A raw test is mainly the number of questions the candidate has answered correctly. Through the process of equating difficult questions are 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. If the candidate performs better in the first section, the question will get difficult in other sections, and correctly answering the difficult questions will raise the score.

GRE Paper-Based Test Result

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

How to Access the GRE test Score

The candidates can follow the given steps to access the GRE test scores from the official website.

  • Visit the official website of GRE
  • Sign in to your ETS Account
  • Enter the details required
  • The result will be displayed on the screen
  • If you want, you can take a print of the result

Note:

The ETS has provided the service of sending the GRE Score Report to the institutions of the candidate's choice. The candidate has to mention them in the application form during the registration process.

Understanding the GRE Test Score

GRE score has been considered for a large range of graduate programs, but candidates 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 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 Psychology tests, subscores are reported on a 20-99 score scale with a one-point increment.
