For tests taken on or after July 1, 2016, scores are reportable for five years following your test date. For example, scores for a test taken on July 3, 2017, are reportable through July 2, 2022.
For tests taken prior to July 1, 2016, scores are reportable for five years following the testing year in which you tested (July 1– June 30). For example, scores for a test taken on May 15, 2015, are reportable through June 30, 2020.
GRE® scores earned prior to July 2012 are no longer reportable. GRE scores earned in July 2012 are reportable until June 30, 2018.
Scores Reported on the GRE® General Test
|Verbal Reasoning||130–170, in 1 point increments|
|Quantitative Reasoning||130–170, in 1 point increments|
|Analytical Writing||0–6, in half point increments|
If no questions are answered for a specific measure (e.g., Verbal Reasoning), then you will receive a No Score (NS) for that measure.
ETS also makes available test-taker photos and essay responses on the Analytical Writing section of the GRE® General Test to designated score recipients in the ETS® Data Manager. Photos and Analytical Writing essay responses of all individuals who report their scores to institutions on or after July 1, 2014, are included in the ETS Data Manager. In the ETS Data Manager, the photo and essay responses from each GRE General Test administration you select from your five-year reportable history will be made available in the portal as part of your score record to the institutions you designated to receive your scores on or after July 1, 2014.
The ScoreSelect® option lets you decide which test scores to send to the institutions you designate. On test day*, as part of your four free score reports, you can send scores from your most recent test administration or from all administrations of the General Test taken in the last five years. After test day, you can send scores from your Most Recent, All or Any specific test administration(s) for a fee when ordering Additional Score Reports. Just remember, scores for a test administration must be reported in their entirety.
The ScoreSelect option helps you approach test day with more confidence, knowing you can send the scores you feel show your personal best. It is available for both the GRE General Test and GRE® Subject Tests, and can be used by anyone with reportable scores from the last five years. For more information on your score reporting options, see Sending Your Scores.
*If you are taking the paper-delivered GRE General Test or a GRE Subject Test, you will make your selections during test registration.
