Students have big dreams about studying in USA. It starts with getting Good GRE Score or atleast Average New GRE Score.

What would happen if one cannot differentiate between Average and good GRE Scores?

Question – My New GRE Score

I have got New GRE Score but I’m not sure if  my New GRE Score is good or average score.

  • GRE Verbal Reasoning :
    • Scaled score – 132
    • %below – 1
  • GRE Quantitative reasoning:
    • Scaled score  – 147
    • %below –  40
  • Analytical writing:
    • Score – 1.5
    • %below –  1

Basically how is the New GRE score?

What kind of universities can I get?

New GRE – Good or Average

Hmm.. lets see if you GRE Score is Good or Average.

  • GRE Verbal – 132 out of 170
  • GRE Quantitative – 147 out of 170
  • Analytical Writing – 1.5 out of 6

I would say your Revised GRE score is neither Good or Average. Its bad.

I don’t know what to say about a student planning to attend graduate school in USA is unable to differentiate between bad, Average and Good GRE Scores.

If you have scores say 150 in Verbal and  150 quantitative sections, then having doubts about Good vs average GRE Scores is valid question.

When you have scores only 132 in Verbal and 1.5 in Analytical writing, you should know that your score is poor.

99% of the GRE test takers who took the test scores above your score in Verbal section and Analytical writing section.

Do your self a favor. Start preparing for GRE again.

Stop wasting time looking for universities for GRE Score 132, 147 and 1.5.

You need to work hard to improve your GRE Score.

    I think if you are a speaker of another language, the university might have mercy and be kind and ignore your verbal score, especially since you are in computer science.

  2. riti on October 3, 2017 at 2:13 PM

    hi my quant score in gre is 162 and and in verbal 135. should i apply for any college in US with this score. my gpa is 3.5 out of 4. I am looking for computer science course in a descent college.

  4. Shreshtha Gupta on December 31, 2015 at 8:23 AM

    HI. I scored 313 (Q-160, V-153). I have a CGPA of 6.95/7.0 (percentage- 80%) in Bachelors of Financial Markets from Mumbai University and scored a 7.5 in IELTS . I want to get accepted to Duke University for their Masters in Management program. Should I consider retaking the GRE? Which other unis can I target in US with this score (for MS in Management or FInance).

    Also,, how is the CGPA converted to a 4 point scale? On the basis of percentage or CGPA points ?

    • Raghuram Sukumar on December 31, 2015 at 12:06 PM

      Hey, my wife applied to Engg Management at Duke and had interview. Avg GRE IS 318. you should have a compelling reason and strong SOP to get into with 313.

  7. ShrizaS on January 14, 2015 at 3:35 AM

    I am in a very difficult position because I am unable to get any dates until April to retake GRE and my recent dec 2014 score is only 143-Verbal and 143-Quantitative and 3 in AWA. I am applying for the july-august session. I am currently running an NGO and a youth group and an e-commerce business. I want to pursue my education in Development Studies. I don’t know which universities to apply that accepts this score. Is the GRE score only the measuring rod? Or my strong profile may help me get admission in a good university? DO you suggest I wait till April to get my new GRE scores and since it would be late by then to apply for the August session, to apply for the Jan session? ADVICe anyone?

  8. mr on January 3, 2015 at 8:22 AM

    I just gave GRE yesterday and received a score of 305. Verbal 155 Quantitative 150. My undergrad GPA was 3.45. I have a 10 year work experience in the commercial banking field. I also work part time remotely for a US based non-profit. Other then that I also write on social and community issues frequently on various blogs. I have a MBA but now I want to go for a MPA. Do you think with this credentials if I have a chance to make it to the top US universties like Syracuse NY, Indiana, Columbia or Harvard.

  12. dibami on April 15, 2013 at 10:33 AM

    GRE test:
    verbal 139below8%, Q153 below56% ,W3. below 11% . How is it???

  13. Venkat on April 2, 2013 at 2:20 AM

    I took the GRE revised test recently…. 309
    verbal 147
    quants 162
    i have an academic CGPA of 8.5/10 —> roughly 3.4 on a 4 point scale…
    i am extremely worried about by GRE score, since the test center made me switch between systems in the middle of my first verbal session which caused me to lose about 10 mins and inadvertently miss about 10 qns

    should i take my GRE test again? or is my profile decent enough to attempt and apply for Masters in Electronics in colleges like Perdue, Georgia Tech, UPenn, UCSB, Maryland Park Town etc…..
    not aiming for MIT or Stanford

  14. Eri on March 25, 2013 at 7:15 PM

    also have a 6 year old buisness experience. Do you think that makes a difference?

  15. Eri on March 25, 2013 at 7:13 PM

    Hi!Today i took the GRE test and my results are: Q150 and V147 . Do you think is enough for a Master in information systems management?

  18. dsRNA on March 8, 2013 at 2:29 AM

    Hello! I am junior undergraduate student in Japan. I would like to apply phD course in the US 2014. I took GRE twice but I only got V142, Q164, AWA2.0 in second time. At first, I got V142, Q157, AWA2.5. (I do not know why my AWA score was dropped, even I used more sophisticated words and wrote them more logically.) I think I should retake GRE but I am now really upsetting to take this test again…
    Can you give me some advice to overcome verbal and AWA test?

    • HSB Counselor on March 8, 2013 at 5:38 AM

      Hi dsRNA, PhD admissions are based on a lot of factors other than GRE scores. If you have had a good research exposure so far with papers published or presented, you may have bright chances of admissions.
      For further advice on admission chances you can share your profile details with us in the forums section.
      We would be happy to provide you with relevant suggestions!

      • dsRNA on March 13, 2013 at 10:22 PM

        Thank you for your reply.
        I am junior year undergraduate ( I will be senior in this April), my gpa will be 3.3-3.4 ( I am top 5% in my university and I am top in senior year), my university reputation is great in agricultural field. I would like to major plant biology. I just start scientific research in lab right now so that I will not have any publications when I apply graduare schools…unfortunately.
        This is all of my information.
        Would you please give me some advice?
        Thank you!!!

  19. Car-k on March 4, 2013 at 12:36 PM

    I got 145 on both Verbal and quantitative reasoning. I am applying
    for Masters in Chemical Engineering. What do you think about this score? I have not got my writing score yet.

    • HSB Counselor on March 6, 2013 at 11:26 PM

      Scores are a little less. But admission are not dependent solely on your GRE scores. In case other credentials are strong you may expect admission offers coming your way.
      For better assessment on the same, you can share your profile details in the forums section. We would be happy to guide you on the admission chances.
      All the best!

  20. Marcus on March 3, 2013 at 5:00 PM

    Hi, I obtained a 151 on the verbal and 153 on the quant, are my chanced strong for getting into a respectable ph.d program in physics or engineering?

    • HSB Counselor on March 6, 2013 at 11:30 PM

      Hi Marcus, PhD admissions are quite tough. As you wish to apply for PhD in Physics, you need to have high scores at least in the Quantitative section.
      But as admissions do not depend solely on GRE scores, your research experience will count a lot. You can share complete details on your profile in the Forums section. We may help you to determine your admission chances.
      Good Luck!

  21. Will Hethcote on February 20, 2013 at 5:10 AM

    I just want to offer some advice to those who are struggling with the GRE. I got a sh*t score 3 times but managed to get into a top 50 school in the end (I’m international). If you want constructive advice besides “You should retake the GRE, your score is too low” I’ve shared how I got my PhD place at UCSD here:

Many universities are offering Ph.D only in fall and not in spring so i m worried about this.please let me know weather i have a chance of getting admission or not.

    • Venkatsai.Gollapudi on February 1, 2013 at 2:25 AM

      Unfortunately, your gre score is too low. Getting an admit for masters is highly difficult so, u can leave the thought of applying for Ph.d I meant not with this score.. Make a plan and retake gre and get score which can secure u an admit in good universities.

    • Pej on December 29, 2012 at 12:09 AM

      Berkley does not only focus on GRE, though your son’s GRE score is splendid and singular, but the point is that GPA plays another important role in admitting students.

  34. minti on November 26, 2012 at 1:08 PM

  36. Asdis on November 16, 2012 at 4:14 AM

    I really have no idea how to interpret mine. I got Verbal: 169, Quant: 147, AWA: 5.
    I just really don’t want to retake it. I had so much anxiety about this test that the first time I took it I had a panic attack and didn’t even submit my scores.

    • ARumsey on November 17, 2012 at 1:10 AM

      I have similar scores 159-Verbal, 146-Quant. and 5.0 AW. I don’t want to retake it either but I panicked in the quantitative section and did not finish 1/2 of the problems in the first set. My graduate GPA is a 4.0 but my undergraduate GPA is a 2.4. Looking at PhD. programs in Counselor Education in Georgia. Any advice?

  37. shoba on November 7, 2012 at 1:10 AM

    I scored150 in verbal and 154 in quant. But my analytical writing score is 2.5.
    Do I need to retake my exam to improve my ratings in analytical writing to get a admission in decent universities for MS in CS or is it ok to apply with this. Can somebody please suggest me on this.

    I have around 3 years of experience in a reputed company and good academics.

  38. asdf on November 2, 2012 at 1:42 AM

    I just recently took the GRE, I got: Verbal 159 Quant: 154. So my total is 313, is this good enough to get into State Schools in Texas?

  39. Ivy on November 1, 2012 at 1:54 AM

    I am so upset. I scored 142 on Verbal and 149 on Math after taken it twice. I already studied using a software program called Magoosh. I am trying to get into a PHD program. I do not think I will get in with my score. I am looking at Master Program instead, but I believe my score is still not competitive enough to get in. Honestly, I do not have confident to score better on Verbal at all. It seems to be very impossible to score better in that section. PLEASE HELPPPPPPPPPPPPPPP!!

  40. Babli on October 30, 2012 at 11:54 PM

    • PK on October 17, 2012 at 3:23 AM

      You call Texas A&M an average University? It is ranked no. 65 nationally according U.S. news and world report. In general, any U.S. university which falls within the top 100 according to the U.S. news and world report ranking is a world class institution.
      Besides, some universities have lower national ranking but are excellent in certain departments.

  45. Nids on October 13, 2012 at 2:11 AM

    Hey people, I have a question that has been confusing me for a long time. I got 155 in quant and 151 in verbal section. Now, if you add up, it comes to 306. But the university that I sent it to records total as 300. Now I am really confused. Have there been any negative marking due to analytical essay, (in which I scored 3 btw) or is there something else. Please help me understand

  46. Pawan Kumar on October 9, 2012 at 1:18 AM

    My gre scores : Verbal 149, Quant 170 … my CGPA is 3.24 for NIT Warangal …
    Though i was pretty satisfied with my performance, i found out on internet that my Verbal falls in 42 percentile. Would that be a problem … I am looking to apply in CompSci in the following universities. (I am still awaiting my AWA scores)

    University of California, Berkeley
    Univ of California,Los Angeles
    Georgia Tech

    Suggest any other universities to which my scores can apply.

    • Pawan Kumar on October 9, 2012 at 6:14 PM

      I am planning to retake the test 5 months later since i don’t think that these scores will help me land in an A+ grade universities for CSE. Pls let me know as to what can i do ??

      • anoop on October 10, 2012 at 2:22 AM

        hey ur quant score is perfect but ur verbal score is poor…..getting into the univ u mentioned may be difficult because of the verbal score,but u can give it a try since ur field is technical….but if ur retaking then make sure to join a coaching class as boosting ur verbal score will require great effort;try to get 155+….maybe 160,this will definitely make sure u get into a top univ……..and make sure u score 170 again in quant !!

        • Pawan Kumar on October 10, 2012 at 6:45 PM

          Yeah .. i was actually planning to do the same … apply with these scores to ambi. univ’s and dream courses … if i do not get thru, i will take a retest and work on my verbal … I still have time on my clock as of now so i guess i do not need to look into safe univ’s and stuff as advised by some websites … Thanks a lot …

        • PK on October 13, 2012 at 10:20 PM

          Although having excellent GRE score is a plus point, top US universities never make admission decisions based on Scores. Even if someone has a GPA of 4/4 and perfect GRE score, admission is not guaranteed. This gives rise to a question- what are they really looking for? The answer is there will be thousands of students, each with perfect GPA and excellent GRE scores applying to top schools, so that the only way for the schools to make admission decision is to look for how you stand out from the pool of applicants. How good is your research experience? How do you present yourself in the statement of purpose? These are all critical factors.

          I am an international student with a BS degree from U.S. and I am also applying for graduate school here in U.S. Believe me, grades and scores are only one component in the U.S. admission system, unlike other countries, where grades are considered everything.

  47. Pawan on October 8, 2012 at 11:55 PM

    Guys, here are my scores : Verbal 149, quant : 170, and a CGPA of 3.24.

    Hi i got Quantitative 137 and Verbal 136 total 273 is there any possibility of getting Visa with 12 backlogs in engineering for doing MS in US.Can anyone suggest me.

    • jhon on November 3, 2012 at 12:04 AM

      SORRY ……Please retake your test, that is a very low score, you wont even get into a university after which you need to worry about the visa, and please specify the course ur applying to.

  56. SWK on July 12, 2012 at 3:12 AM

    I got verbal 162 and quant 164. I am wondering my quant is good enough for top engineering schools.

    According to the conversion table given by ETS, I got an impression that quant scores that are given to students are such as 166, 164, 163, 161, 160, 159, and so on. I am not sure if this is a correct interpretation of the table. I think there are people who got 170, 169, or 167. Then do you guys think it’s worth it to take GRE again to get higher Quantitative score? My writing score is not available yet.

  57. jaafar aldhurais on July 12, 2012 at 2:22 AM

    dear friend,

    tell me,im so frustrated, i got verbal 142 and quantitive136.
    dont know what to it so bad for applying for PHD degree in planning.

    • mano on October 18, 2012 at 12:49 AM

      It is very bad score to apply for MS coarse itself. PHD is nowhere near
      So please dont waste time ,…get prepared well again and give your best in GRE again
      best luck

  58. Mia on July 5, 2012 at 6:49 PM

    Verbal – 161 (89%)
    Quantitative – 158 (79%)
    AWA- 5.0 (87%)

    Are these good enough to compensate for a less than stellar GPA? (and by that I mean I hate admitting my gpa..). I know that for biochem my quantitative should be a bit higher, but is it worth retaking the whole test?

  59. Saranya on June 20, 2012 at 3:08 PM

    Is my revised gre score good or below average????
    Suggest me some universities for my marks….
