About the New GRE Score Scale

Sunday, July 10th, 2011

Many of you have been asking us about the scoring used by our New GRE Practice Tests for the revised General Test. So we wanted to write a quick note regarding the New GRE Score Scale and how it affects you.

It’s important to note that ETS will not be releasing any scores for the new GRE until November of this year. Only at that time will the “scoring curve” be set. Clearly, ETS intends to use the time between when they receive the first new GRE results in August and when they produce scores for those results in November to evaluate the various elements of the new format and how they will play into students’ overall scores. We expect they will provide a little guidance regarding score range percentiles and additional data at that time.

Until the “scoring curve” is set – we’ll continue to use a curve extrapolated from data gathered with the “old” GRE format to calculate revised scores in the new 130-170 point range for our practice tests. For your reference, our practice tests also provide an approximation of your scores under the “old” 200-800 score scale and will continue to do so until at least November.

Feel free to post any questions regarding this in the comments below – or reach out to us directly on facebook or twitter.
