Definitely, you might be wondering about the scores you need to secure admission to your desired university. We bring you the upGrad Abroad GRE Score Calculator that intends to provide you with a clear understanding of your potential GRE score. Our GRE Calculator streamlines the process of calculating your score, making it easier for you to set and attain your educational goals.

GRE Score

As the GRE score provides graduate schools with a standardized measure of your readiness for advanced study, it becomes a vital factor in the application process. The scores are based on assessing three sections: Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, and Analytical Writing. The scores for the Verbal and Quantitative Reasoning sections range from 130 to 170 in one-point increments, while the Analytical Writing section score ranges from 0 to 6 in half-point increments.

The average GRE scores required for graduate admission vary depending on the program or institution you're applying to. Typically, the acceptable average Verbal and Quantitative Reasoning scores fall in the range of 150-160. However, it's essential to research the specific score requirements of your chosen graduate program or school.

GRE Score Calculation

Your cumulative performance in the GRE Verbal and GRE Quantitative sections determines your overall GRE score, which ranges from 260 to 340. The Verbal and Quantitative sections are individually scored on a scale of 130 to 170. The Analytical Writing score is reported separately.

The total GRE score is calculated by adding your Verbal and Quantitative scores. For instance, if you score 155 in Verbal and 160 in Quantitative, your overall GRE score would be 315. The percentile score of the total GRE score is calculated by comparing your scores with other test takers. The percentile ranges from 1 to 99. Below tables represent the percentile range for the respective score range of the GRE Verbal and Quant sections.
