The GRE, Graduate Record Examination is a systematised, multiple-choice, computer-based exam. The GRE exam results are needed for admission to PG courses, especially MBA, by universities globally. Educational Testing Service (ETS) controls and administers GRE. According to ETS, the assessment is designed to test the aspirants’ verbal reasoning, mathematical reasoning, analytical writing, and critical thinking abilities. 

The importance of GRE scores in graduate school admissions varies significantly between schools and departments within institutions. A GRE score can be anything from a minor admission requirement to a critical selection determinant. Quantitative Reasoning, Analytical Writing, and Verbal Reasoning are the sections that need to be attempted as part of the GRE. The current verbal and quantitative section score scales are 130-170, with one-point increments. The analytical writing portion is marked on a scale of 0 to 6 points, with half-point increments.

How to Get the GRE Results?

GRE exam results are available over the ETS accounts. A mail is received once the aspirant’s scores are available. The score recipients will receive an official ‘Institution Score Report’ from ETS. GRE scores will be available in a student’s ETS account 10–15 days after their test date. The student’s official score report is available in their ETS account and intended only for viewing. 

How to Check the GRE Test Scores?

GRE test scores can be viewed in two different ways:

1. Unofficial scores – After taking the test in person at a test centre, students can view their scores. Students can choose to view an unofficial report of their GRE test at the test centre. They can then view the unofficial scores for the Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning section but cannot view their Analytical Writing score.

2. Official scores through ETS account – Students can create an online account on to get their official scores. They will need to provide basic personal information like name, mailing address, and phone number. They will also need to create a username and password for their account. Students can also look for their scores five weeks after their test date if they took a paper-delivered test. They will get an email when their GRE scores are available, which can be accessed through an ETS account.

GRE Score Range

Every student receives three GRE scores on their score report, one for Quantitative Reasoning (maths), one for Verbal Reasoning, and one for Analytical Writing (the essays).
