Revised new GRE score conversion chart will be used to convert Old GRE Score to New GRE Score.

You can see unofficial Old GRE to New GRE Score converter.

Few minutes back, I saw a comment from Navya

My old GRE score has been converted to New GRE score.

Now i got 276/340. I don’t know whether its a good score or bad score.

I have to figure out if ETS already started mailing out New GRE Score reports or she found from her online GRE account.

New GRE Score Conversion

According to ETS

  • Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning scores on the GRE revised General Test are reported on new 130 – 170 score scales, in 1-point increments.
  • For GRE test takers who took the GRE General Test prior to August 2011, reports will include Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning scores on the prior 200 – 800 score scales and estimated scores on the new 130 – 170 score scales. This information is included on the score report to help you compare candidates. New GRE Score Conversion table will be available on the GRE website in November.
  • Additional test taker information is provided on the report, including email address, telephone number and intended graduate major.

    I would appreciate any
    A little bit of background information..
    I am an undergraduate in an american university. I’m hoping to graduate next year with some gpa between 3.5-3.6 out of 4. I also have a little bit of research experience..
    I know my GRE score probably isn’t great, but I don’t want to retake it and most likely going to apply to grad school with this score… So please suggest any feasible Universities for me in US or Canada… Thanks

    Is it possible to get in Texas A&M college station for my I/O psychology>?

  22. I got 168 in quants and 147 in verbal and I have 2 publications and 1.2 years of work experiance, yet to write TOEFL. Can you recomend some universities for me to do MS Embedded Systems in US.

  28. I scored a 302 on my first try–that probably won’t cut it for major grad school requirements–especially if the school is competitive. University of Washington, for example would want a minimum of 315. $160 down the drain. :(

  29. Hello HSB,

    I am preparing for gre. I had taken 3-4 mock tests lately , and i am able to achieve 310 mark on an average. Now i want to excel my score to 320 and i have one month span left for it. I generally got Quant:-165 and Verbal:-145 . I have a lot of problems with Reading comprehensions and Sentence completion.
    Please suggest me the way .


      • I gave the gre one time and i got 300 , and i am giving gre again , So what kind of universities i can get from 300 ( quant:- 157 , Verbal :- 143) ….

  30. Hey guys I got 730(old)=157(new) in quant
    410(old)=147(new) in verbal
    and yet to get my AWA
    Are my scores sufficient to get into gud universities or shall i take exam again..

    • I guess your verbal is too less. Usually engineering etc universities the V schore to be in 50s of percentile at minimum. I have seen many universities requiring score in 500-550.

      Syracuse: GRE Verbal score of 500 or better;
      • GRE Quantitative score of 700 or better;
      • GRE Analytical Writing score of 4.5 or better (the GRE Analytical multiple choice is not acceptable);
      • For international students: TOEFL computer-based score of 250 (paper-based score 600) or better;
      • GPA of 3.5/4.0 or better.

      V, 550 / 146 Q, 750 / 159 A, 4.0 T=95

  31. I took GRE exam yesterday. After the exam these grades appeared.
    Are these scores reliable?

    • Q170 is amazing! That’s perfect 100%! Excellent excellent work! However, your Verbal is very low. It might not be that much of a problem if you are applying to an engineering program, but for something like psychology, you would definitely need a higher Verbal score.

  32. Hi all,
    I got 310 and I am looking for MIS in US.
    Which universities I can look for?? What are the options available with this score??

    Can anyone guide me??

    I am bit concerned about my AWA score.
    Do you think I should take the revised GRE or the scores are fine to get thorough in good universities in US.

  46. I would like to know if this conversion is accurate, and where did you got it from. This is really helpfull but I’m confused with the quantitative chart, is it different from the verbal? It has the title different, but it says new gre verbal, so please let me know, because I want to make sure I am looking at the correct chart to interpret my answers.


    • It is, it’s taken off of the ets site… though I can’t find the link right now, but the numbers correspond when I checked my score

  47. Hi there, I got 139 in Verbal, 155 in Quantitative, 294/340 and 3 in writing. I have MSc and decided to apply for PhD in U.S. Please let me know can I apply ? Is that enough?

    • it is up to the school and program that you are applying . some school in US dont even care about your verbal and they look only at your Q grade .

  48. hai… i got a score of 315.5 totaling the verbal, quantitative and analytical writing sections… What actually is the total maximum score..? What would be my score as compared to the earlier version. Is my score a good one?

  49. i took the GRE in the new pattern. my score is 330/340. what would be my score in the old pattern? will it be above 1500? this conversion thing is very very ambiguous. i wonder why i spent so much for an exam that can’t even give me my scores accurately.

  50. Hi,
    Wondering if you have any updates on the conversion?
    Could you at least ballpark my scores for me? Even my advisors and profs have no idea…
    165 Quant, 161 Verbal.

    Either way, thanks!

  51. hey, i observed 1 of the post that 1330 is equivalent to 317,318 ? how is that possible, so this is unfair eg: person1: 730/800 in Q and 600/800 in verbal.. new pattern scores are 157 in quants and 160 in Verbal making a total of 317/340.
    person 2 :Verbal : 158 (570)
    Quant: 160 (760)
    Total: 318 (1330)
    so unfair right?

    • yes ,there is a lot of difference ,evn in quant 720 was given 157 and 750 is gvn 154 or 155 ….ths is very confusing,shud await the official scores by the ets .:(

  52. Hi, I gave the GRE in the old format. Have got the new scores
    Verbal : 158 (570)
    Quant: 160 (760)
    Total: 318 (1330)

  53. I checked my GRE account, I had taken my GRE(old pattern) on march 25 2011.
    I scored 730/800 in Q and 600/800 in verbal.. my new pattern scores are 157 in quants and 160 in Verbal making a total of 317/340.

  54. nice post HSB,

    since the test takers will soon be announced their score in new format, can HSB set up a page for students to input their estimated score in old format, compare to their score in new format, may be a good reference for us. thanks

  55. After reading this post I checked my gre account and saw that Ets has given a approximate new gre score. Mine is 310/340. But they have not entered the scaled scores yet. Is 310 a good score?

    • Hi vignesh… when did you take your test? my aren’t available still! i took it on the 21st of september… did u take the test in the old format as well?

      • Hi Amritha! I took the test in the old format on the 10th of May..I guess they are giving the new test score only for those who took the old format..Those who took d test in d new format will get their scores by the 2nd week of Nov I guess..

        • looks like it :) anyway.. congrats on your score! 310 sounds pretty good to me considering the values in the concordance table!

        • hey I took my new gre on 26th june,2012
          and have score 310/340

          verbal – 147
          quant – 163 (don’t know what went wrong. Have not scored this low in any of practice tests)

          Can anyone tell me how good score is this?? or should i go for one more attempt??

  56. I took GRE in both patterns. I received an estimated current score for old GRE pattern. I am still waiting for the current scores of revised GRE. I got 300/340 in the old version of GRE.

  57. Well I took the revised GRE and the scores aren’t available yet. However the online score sheet looks quite different from what it used to look a week back. Also the report online scores option is now enabled. So I think they are uploading the scores.

    On a different point, the score of Navya seems quite low then. Considering that the minimum is 260, 276 tells its extremely low.
