GRE Test Results

When and How Are GRE Results Declared

The GRE test is taken through dedicated testing centers around the world in order to make admission applications for university level education. The GRE test is administered in two formats- computer-based test and paper-based test. Most of the testing centers around the world use the computer-based testing format but the paper-based test is administered in locations where the former is not available. The GRE results of test takers help them to prove their abilities to the administrative authorities of the educational institution. All necessary information about the GRE test and results is available on the official website at http://www.ets.org/gre/revised_general/scores/. There are three ways in which a test taker can check his  results. This results can be viewed online, checked over the phone or viewed in the official score report which is delivered to your address. Below is an explanation on when and how the GRE results are declared.

General Information about the Test Scores

GRE results contain information about how a test taker has performed on the GRE test. Test scores are allotted to test takers in the three sections of Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning and Analytical Writing. The sections of Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning receive scaled scores on a range of 130-170 points. Increments are made by 1 point in terms of addition of marks. The Analytical Writing section receives a score on a range of 0-6 points on the results. Increments in this section are made by half a point in terms of addition of scores. If you do not answer any questions at all in a particular section of the test your score for that section will be reported as No Score (NS) in your GRE results.

Score reports are usually sent to test taker's address as well as institutions the test taker directs the GRE results to be sent 10-15 days from the date of the test. This is applicable for the results of those test takers that have taken the computer-based test.
