How to Use New GRE ScoreSelect Option

Following content was sent as email to GRE Test Taker via Email about How to Use New GRE ScoreSelect Option.

Dear GRE Test Taker:

Our records indicate that you took the GRE® General Test or a GRE® Subject Test in the last five years. We wanted to inform you of two important policy changes in the areas of score reporting and retaking the test.

The new ScoreSelect option will be available, starting in July 2012, for both the GRE General Test and GRE Subject Tests, and can be used by anyone with reportable scores from the last five years.

The new ScoreSelect option lets you decide which GRE scores from your reportable history to send to the institutions you designate. Now you can send the scores that you feel reflect your personal best.

Whether you plan to take the GRE revised General Test or a GRE Subject Test again — or simply wish to send Additional Score Reports to other institutions, you can take advantage of the ScoreSelect option.

Here’s how it works:

On test day, when viewing your scores at the test center*, you can select the:

  • ScoreSelect Most Recent option — Send your scores from your current test administration (FREE).
  • ScoreSelect All option — Send your scores from all test administrations in the last five years (FREE).

You can decide which option to use for each of your four free score reports.

After test day, you can send Additional Score Reports for a fee by selecting from the following:

  • ScoreSelect Most Recent option — Send your scores from your most recent test administration.
  • ScoreSelect All option — Send your scores from all test administrations in the last five years.
  • ScoreSelect Any option — Send your scores from one OR many test administrations in the last five years.

Scores for a test administration must be reported in their entirety. Regardless of whether you choose the Most Recent, All or Any option, you will select specific test administration dates so your scores are all from the same testing session. Institutions will receive score reports that show only the scores that you selected to send to them. There will be no special indication if you have taken additional GRE tests.

And, starting July 1, 2012, the policy for retaking a test will also be updated. You will be able to take the GRE revised General Test (computer-based and paper-based) once every 30 days, and up to five times within any continuous rolling 12-month period. If you are taking only the paper-based GRE revised General Test or a GRE Subject Test, you may take them as often as they are offered.

You are receiving this customer service email because of your prior GRE test administration. If you would like to hear about test preparation workshops and special opportunities for individuals considering graduate or business school, please sign up.

Sincerely,

The GRE Program Team

*If you are taking the paper-based GRE revised General Test or a GRE Subject Test, you will select your options prior to test day.

      No, your free score advantage as a test taker allows you to send only four reports for free just after you finish the exam.
