Scoring the GRE
The three major parts of the test are scored independently. You will receive a verbal score, a math score, and a writing score. The verbal and math scores range from 130 to 170, in 1-point increments. The writing score is on a scale from 0 to 6, in half-point increments. In addition to the scaled score, you will be assigned a percentile ranking, which gives the percentage of students with scores below yours.
