GRE Scoring Process

  • In GRE scoring process the row score for each of the two verbal and maths sections is computed
  • And the row score will be computed on basis oh how many answers are correct, difficulty level of that question and number of questions which you have attended.
  • For example: if two candidates have answered same number of correct answer and their score should be different because it also depends on difficulty level of question which they have answered correctly.
  • Same scoring process will be applicable for paper-based exam.
  • After that raw score is climbed with final score by a process which is called equating.
  • And the final score is adjusted according to difficulty of the questions among exam versions.
  • ETS shows that scores on both the GRE revised General Test and GRE paper-based exam are comparable.
  • Two readers will read and scored analytical writing section, and both of them will rate critical thinking and writing skills rather than grammar and mechanics.
  • Few grammatical errors are allowed but if they found many mistreats in paper then it will effect on marks.
  • The two readers will provide a score on a range from zero to six for a paper with one-half point increments.
  • And then for final score, scores from both the reader will then be averaged and rounded to the nearest one-half point.
  • If the scores form two readers have differs more than 1 point then a third reader will paper.
  • And the score report includes all 3 scores.
  • The verbal reasoning and quantitative reasoning section՚s scores are described on a scale of 130 - 170 with 1-point increments.
  • The analytical writing assessment score is reported on a 0 - 6 scale, with half-point increments.
  • And with this score you will also get percentile rank which indicates the percentage of candidates who have scored well or worse than you. For example: a percentile rank of 75 % indicates that 75 % of all candidates scored as good or worse than you, and that approximately 25 % of candidates who took the exam scored better than you.
