GRE Score Percentiles


The GRE test comprises of 3 sections

  • verbal reasoning,: 40 Questions divided into 2 Sections
  • quantitative reasoning: 40 Questions divided into 2 Sections
  • and analytical writing: 2 Essay Questions

    The test can last upto 3 hours 45 minutes and the reported scores include:
  • The verbal reasoning score. This can range from 130-170 in one-point increment. (One point for each correct answer)
  • The quantitative reasoning score. This can range from 130-170 in one-point increment. (One point for each correct answer)
  • The analytical writing score. This can range from 0-6 in half-point increment.



The GRE score report also gives you the percentile rank for each of the above test scores.

The scaled score raises the question if the scores you’ve got would be considered a good score or not.

How do you compare your test performance with others who have taken the test?

The percentile ranks are a good way to know where you stand.


So what percentile ranks?



Percentile scores are used to compare your scores with the scores of other test takers within a selected comparison group. Here, the percentile ranks indicate the percentage of test-takers who’ve receive a score below yours. For instance, if your score was reported to be in the 80th percentile, it would mean that you scored better than 80 percent of the test takers around the world.

These ranks are based on the GRE scores of those who tested earlier within a three year period. For those testing in 2016-17, the percentile ranks are calculated on the performance of those who were tested between July 1, 2012 and July 30, 2015.
