ETS published Official GRE score reports today. Now, you will be able to get Revised GRE score from GRE Score Range you received after the test.

While writing this post, I received the following email from a reader.

I was just checking my ETS/GRE account last night and discovered that the new GRE scores are reported.Just wanted to share my scores if that helps anyone.The score ranges that I got on the day of exam were:

  • Verbal GRE Score Range- 500-600
  • Quants GRE Score Range – 750-800

and the final score according to new scale is:

  • New Verbal – 154/170
  • New Quant – 168/170


Official Revised GRE score reporting was scheduled to be published on Nov 8, 2011. But, ETS started reporting Revised GRE scores from today.

Let’s dive deep into the Old GRE to New GRE Concordance Table (Converter).

Check the following  concordance table. Login into you GRE Account, you should be able to see the Revised GRE score for your GRE Score Range.

You can download the above tables using the following links.

  • Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning Interpretive Data Used on Score Reports (PDF) — Includes Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning scores on the 130 – 170 score scales, in one-point increments, and the corresponding percentile ranks.
  • Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning Concordance Information (PDF) — Contains two concordance tables: one for the Verbal Reasoning measure and one for the Quantitative Reasoning measure. The table for each measure provides scores on the prior 200 – 800 score scale, the corresponding estimated scores on the new 130 – 170 score scale and corresponding percentile ranks. Assists score users in comparing applicants who took the GRE® General Test prior to August 1, 2011, to applicants who took the GRE® revised General Test on or after August 1, 2011.

GRE Score Range to GRE Score

So, what is your Official GRE Score and what was your GRE Score range?

I’m still crunching the numbers to figure out how the GRE Score range, mapping of old to new took place.

Looking at few Quantitative Score Converter

  • 800 – 166 – 94%
  • 790 – 164 – 91%
  • 780 – 163 – 88%
  • 750 – 159 – 82%

As you can see 800 in Old Format converts only to 166 in New GRE Format.

What does that mean?

New GRE quantitative section is tougher than Old GRE.

See what Mantahhn GRE Blog said about GRE Score mapping.

750-800 Math estimates can end up all over the place – 750-800 was the best quant estimate that you could get on the revised GRE, but today that range can mean a score as low as the 85 percentile (based on scores we have heard so far). The fact that a range of 6 score values on the old test (750, 760, 770, 780, 790, 800) translates to at least 10 different score values on the new test (162, 163, 163, 164, 165, 166, 167, 168, 169, 170) shows just how out of whack the old quant scale was. Unfortunately, it also means that receiving a 750-800 estimate on your quant doesn’t tell you much about what your official score will actually be.

But, in reality if you look at the actual scores reported to students, single score in old format corresponds to different scores in New Revised GRE.

Look at  the GRE Scores submitted by GRE Test Takers – Unofficial Correspondence Table.

I know what you are thinking.

Is it fair to have such score mapping?

Lets hold on to that argument for now. We need to crunch more numbers, understand how this Equating Process works.

I want you to understand 2 things from this post

  • ETS have published Revised GRE Scores
  • GRE Test Takers should be received Score reports in mail

If you have additional questions, comments or concerns about score mapping, leave your comments below. ETS is going to have a webinar about this score mapping process. I will be attending the session, and I can get you more updates about the GRE scores, percentiles, Equating process used for score mapping.

  18. Hi…I have got a final score of 321 (verbal-157, quant-164) and 3.5 in awa….
    Can this score be considered good?
    what kind of universities should i plan to apply?

  19. I gave gre on 31 oct and yet to receive the actual score . I got the range of Q 710-800 and V 340-440 . How much score should i expect in the new scale and Which universities should i apply ? Want to do Masters in Computer Science .

  20. 163 verbal (93 percentile)

    awa 4
    can anybody tell me if its possible?Iam dissapointed with quant ?but i am not considering retake as iam just scraping through

  21. Verbal:- 153 (62%ile)
    Quant:- 169 (98%ile)
    AWA:- 4.5 (72%ile)

    At first I was thinking that the scores were okay, not good but okay…. but the percentile score makes me feel as though they are very bad. If the new test is supposedly harder than the old test then why are the percentiles taken from the last three years? I don’t know if I should bother applying to graduate school now.

    • ” If the new test is supposedly harder than the old test then why are the percentiles taken from the last three years? I don’t know if I should bother applying to graduate school now.” — I feel the same way too~!! >.<

  37. V 167 – 98%
    Q 165 – 93%
    AW 4.5 – 72%

    i am applying to bioinformatics phds…i guess this is pretty good,but AW could have been better,i was too stressed out and ran out of time

  38. I just checked the score today and my verbal is 153 (62% below) and q 167 (95% below) and AWA is 3.5 (29% below) with GPA 3.6 from UCSD undergraduate. I am trying to apply for UCLA in Electrical Engineering major. Is it possible for me to get in? I really need some useful comments now.. :(

  39. I got 137 in verbal(% below 06) and 151 in quantiitative(i%below 56)..
    I am confused with my result. how could it be possible geeting % below 6 in verbal though i have 137 score.

    Will the University going to check marks according to percentage or only final score???(making my blood pressure high)

  40. NEW GRE
    Range Displayed:
    Q: 710-800
    V: 550-660
    Actual Score: 157 each in Q&V. 77%ile each. Corresponding score in Old GRE: 1290. AWA:4

  41. I have only got the report saying verbal – 150(48% below), quant – 148(44% below) and analytical – 3.0(11% below).. Please guide me how good are these scores? Is it advisable to write gre again? i have a score of 109 in TOEFL..

    Thanks and regards.

  42. I got Quant – 154
    Verbal – 151..
    AW – 4.0
    Applying for MS in computer science.. How are the chances f getting into a decent university??
    115/120 in Toefl

  43. I took the revised gre on sep 9 and i got my revised scores today :

    Verbal – 161- 89 below
    Quants- 163 – 88 below
    AWA- 3.5- 29% below

    The score ranges i received after my exam where

    Verbal : 630-730
    Quants : 750-800

    Slightly put out as i thought my scores read great in the old pattern………..and my verbal score of 161 corresponds to 610 which is less than the score range i recieved…. :(

  44. It is very unfair for those who took the old GRE. The maximum score only 336 compare to those who take new GRE. 4 points is huge, can decide wheather you will be selected by Uni.

    • they canot based on the 94% (for old GRE is at 800, new GRE is at 166). As Revised GRE takers are far more fewer than the old GRE takers

  45. I got my scores today as well: Verbal: 159 (%84) and Quant: 168 (96%)
    AWA 3.5 (29%)
    I’m applying for MS in chemical engineering .

  46. I wanted to ask that while filling the admission form for the university online should i enter the new scaled score that I received or the range .Please help me out HSB :)

      • But the university page ask us to enter Verbal and Quant marks for score range of 200-800 should i write to the uni for the same or should i enter my marks based on the coversion table u provided??

  47. Hi guys, I gave it on Sept 12th, but in website it shows ‘Absent or not available’. Is it normal ?

      • hey, its the same for me..
        i took my GRE on 4th of October at Prometric Ahmadabad (India) and got the following score ranges: verbal 490-590 and quant 750-800..
        i keep on checking my GRE account and it said “absent or not available”..
        i thought it was normal since my official score was scheduled to be declared on 17th of October..but reading this article has made me very anxious..please advise me on the course of action..
        meanwhile i ll try and contact ETS about the matter..

        • You will recieve ur scores by the end of next week.As of now the scores are available for only those who appeared between 1st August to 30 Sept.

  48. I took my GRE on October 5th .. I haven’t got any update .. please mention the dates on which you took GRE while mentioning the scores ..

  49. I got a score of 153 (%below 62) in Verbal and 161(%below 86) in Quants and 4.5 in Analytical writing. Is it a good score?

  50. Hello HSB ,
    My score is 136 in verbal and 160 in Quantitative and Analytic is 3.0…?
    What can you say about the scores according to Revised GRE scores? GOOD or BAD?

  51. Well, it is not clear for me why GRE/GMAT is considered as the decisive exam to enter in to graduate program. i personally believe that,it should be a Major related not English exam(GRE) which should determine u to embark on graduate study.
    i am an MSc student and i am not good in English but i do research very well,Communicate well.
    Anyway ,i took the exam past September and as i have expected, ETS has dropped their bomb on my mind early this morning.

    Frankly speaking, i wasn’t prepared well, i didn’t even bought any kinds of supplementary books. the only book/document i used is the official book in which i downloaded it from ETS website. in the exam,back in September, i have seen the immediate results reading: verbal=700-800,and Quant=330-430.
    But finally, today i have got my result which reads, V=157 (percentage below 77%, i guess it is not bad) and Quant=144 (percentage below 26%, very very poor,i knew it would happen).
    i am also bad in essay writing ,got 3.0(percentage below11%).

    so i have no chance of getting admission(PhD) this time. lol

    • poor me, i interchanged it.
      pls interchange the Verbal and Quantitative terms above pls, sorry i was out of mind for awhile.

      • if you think you werent prepared well you shouldnt have taken the test

        the thing is no one is ever prepared for the test
        out of every 100 students taking gre only 2 or 3 are the ones are actually very confident about their preparation
        GRE scores are just one aspect for admissions
        they carry only about 10 to 20 % weightage
        the rest depends on your SOP LOR your RESEARCH and publications
        if you are saying you are good at research then just show them your work
        i am sure they would be very happy to accept you

    • Hi,

      Dont loose hope you can show your TOFEL scores for low verbal scores, if you perform really good. B/W wen did you give your test on.

    • A 10 year old can score 750-800 in GRE quant.Infact it is so easy that some might say it is impossible to screw it up.Verbal is a different story though.
      If you get a 26 pc in quant maybe you should stop dreaming about phd and start working in a McDonalds drive through instead.

      • Well,I actually said,i interchanged my results: V=141,Q=157,AWA=3.0.
        I knew i would have scored much better had I been prepared well. Frankly speaking I took it just because there was a 50% discount on fee,just wanted to know my level with out any preparation.
        Hey there, BTW, i wont give up to pursue my PhD just because of my GRE result. What matters most is my MSc research (in which i am doing well and strongly believe to publish on International magazines.) not the so called GRE.
        Forget about working at McDonald men hahhaa, am not desperate with PhD. I WILL DO PHD IF I GET IT FOR FREE,MEANING, TUITION FREE AND MONTHLY ALLOWANCE (LIKE My current MSc) I am a young Structural Engineer if u dont know

  52. Revised GRE is the best test in the world….! Old GRE will no longer hold the charm..:-) :-))

  53. HSB:

    I took my test on 29th September. But, I find I’ve not got my scores. May be people who took in the month of August have got it, I guess!

  54. Well it seems that the revised GRE scores and the percentiles are now synonymous. Both the score and the percentile seem to indicate the same thing now unlike the old GRE, in which the score was an absolute measure and the percentile was relative.
