General test GRE scores are divided in to three sections namely verbal, quantitative and analytical writing. The verbal section is graded on the scale of 130 to 170 in one point increments. This section consists of 20 questions which must be finished within 30 minutes. The quantitative section is also graded on a scale of 130 to 170 in one point increments. This test consists of 20 questions which must be completed within 35 minutes. The writing section contains two essays. The two essays are graded on a scale from zero to six. At least one reader will grade your essays.
In addition to the GRE test scores, a percentile ranking is provided. Your GRE test score percentile rank is a comparison of your scores with those of other candidates. This number is the percentage of other test takers who took the test and earned a lower score.
Your GRE test score is rated on the basis of the GRE test score percentile rank. Every graduate school has its own individual policy to rate your GRE test score. Some schools may require only the general test, while other schools may require GRE subject test scores for a GRE test score rating. For detailed information on GRE test score ratings for specific courses, contact the appropriate academic department of prospective schools.
