Minimum Revised GRE Scores
Here is a snippet from ETS/GRE Site
Since the level of skills in verbal reasoning, quantitative reasoning and analytical writing abilities required for success in graduate school varies by field or department, Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning and Analytical Writing scores should not be combined into a single score.
What does the above statement mean?
If you happen to see in many university that has minimum required GRE Score as 300, without individual section scores, ETS is advising against using such metrics.
Instead, universities can have minimum Revised GRE scores for admission for each sections. Also, ETS is suggesting to list 50% Average GRE Scores than a specific GRE Scores cut off.
Like 75th and 25th percentiles scores of admitted students.
Florida State University – Math Department Revised GRE Score
FSU Math’s Revised GRE admissible Quantitative minimum score is 155 (based on current published ETS score concordances). A high Verbal Reasoning (V) score is also desirable. The department will expect Revised GRE scores Verbal >= 140; for a student with a Verbal score at the bottom of that range, the department will look for a very strong Quantitative score.
