GRE Scores for entering graduate students

The Graduate Record Examination (GRE) test is a worldwide standardized graduate school entrance exam administered by the Educational Testing Service (ETS) under the direction of the Graduate Record Examination Board.

The Educational Testing Service (ETS) launched a revision of the GRE on August 1, 2011. Significant changes were made to the Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning measures. As a result, the scoring of the exam has changed as follows:

Exam Section Previous GRE Range Revised GRE Range
Analytical Writing 0 - 6 0 - 6
Verbal Reasoning 200 - 800 130 - 170
Quantitative Reasoning 200 - 800 130 - 170

Beginning fall 2012, institutions will convert any previous GRE Verbal and Quantitative scores to align with the revised GRE scale using the Concordance Table provided by ETS (http://www.ets.org/s/gre/pdf/concordance_information.pdf). Note: UT Permian Basin began accepting new GRE scores in fall 2011; therefore, converted scores for UT Permian Basin will begin being reported in fall 2011.
