Question from a reader about Revised GRE Scores switched between Verbal and Math, between Scores after the test to GRE Score report.
So I took like 6 practice tests and got around 164 math and 153 verbal almost every time.
I get my temp scores and it is 165/158 so I am happy.
Then I get my report see the same and send it out.
Then I look closer and it has me as math 158 and verbal 165!!
There is just no way that is possible.
My vocab is terrible and I was a math minor. I never scored below a 163 for any math practice and never scored above a 152 verbal – ever! I called ETS and they say there is no way they are wrong and will not do anything about it.
Anyone else ever had this happen?
Funny thing is my total the way i think it should be would be on the old scale 1370 but the way they have me it is a 1430 on the old scale. So maybe i should just be happy but I am afraid the math intensity of my major would be an issue.
Interchanged GRE Scores
- You are Correct and ETS is Incorrect.
- Your are Incorrect and ETS is Correct.
Unfortunately, GRE test takers don’t have screenshots to prove that.
If in case there is bug in the ETS GRE testing system or several others have reported the same problem, they could go back to check what happened.
Possible Solution for ETS
Right after test takers accept the GRE scores, printout with unofficial scores can handed-out to the test taker. Of course, it should have a note – “Unofficial Score” or something like that.
I have never seen anyone with similar problem before.
But, let’s see if other readers have had such issues with GRE Score reports.
