Your GRE test score could be all that makes the difference between you making it into your dream college or not. These scores have validity for five years and are mainly for getting admission into graduate colleges and universities in the US, the UK, or Canada.
The New Scores
The revised GRE test
also has a new score format along with the change in its overall pattern. It is the sum of the scores of all of its sections totally. The analytical writing section, hasn’t changed and will be rated (in half point increments) on the scale of zero to six. The verbal reasoning section (in 1 point increments) could carry the score of 130-170. The older verbal section will help you score from 200- 800 on the score scale with 10 point increments. The quantitative section (in 1 point increments) could carry the score of 130-170. The older math section has a 200-800 score scale with 10 point increments. The maximum score that students get in the revised GRE test is 340, whereas the older version’s maximum score was 1,600.
Students have the liberty of picking the best of their scores from four of their score reports within the period of the last five years, to apply to the institutions of their choice. This option is available for both the revised GRE general test as well as the GRE subject tests. All that’s required from you is a thorough and well organized prep.
