Sweta Asks : I gave my GRE in August, but I didn’t get my GRE official score card yet. When I tried contacting ETS, I got a mailed response saying “Please be informed that effective from July 1, 2013 hard copy to the candidate address are not being processed. Therefore, we have uploaded all the candidates score reports in their respective GRE profile in a PDF format. Therefore, you may print your score report from your GRE profile using your Login credentials.”  Wat does this exactly mean, will the GRE test takers post july1, get the official hard copies?

Rahul Asks: Even I wrote my GRE in August and still not received my hard copy of score card. My friend who wrote GRE with me also haven’t received his GRE score card. Will there be any problem while visa interview if we take the printed score card? coz they ask for original GRE score report.

Here is the official News from ETS

Paperless Score Reporting: GRE test-taker score reports are now paperless! Effective July 2013, test takers have access to view their official Examinee Score Report online.
About 10 to 15 days after their computer-based test (and about six weeks after their paper-based test), test takers are notified via email that their scores are ready online.

They simply access their My GRE Account to view their scores. Test takers can also use the new on-demand, print-friendly functionality to print an official Examinee Score Report for free.

ETS will continue to send official Institution Reports, directly from ETS, in a secure fashion to institutions in their preferred format.
