GRE Test Scores

GRE Test Scores Dubai Abu Dhabi Sharjah UAE.

The GRE Score is calculated on the basis of the student’s performance in 3 basic areas, which are:

  • Verbal reasoning which has a 130-170 score scale with a 1 point increment

  • Quantitative reasoning which has a 130-170 score scale with a 1 point increment

  • Analytical writing which has a 0-6 score level with a 0.5 point increment.

How is the GRE Sectional Score Calculated?

Both the Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning segments have 2 measures. All the inquiries posed inside them merit similar focuses. How well you score in verbal and quantitative thinking relies on:

Execution on the Questions Asked – our reasonable assumption is this means the GRE score algorithm takes into account if you are above or the average the difficulty of the questions during the two sections. To make clear to you the idea: the level of difficulty of the GRE questions range for the minimum (which is 1) to the maximum (which is 5). The average throughout each of the two section, both quant and verbal, is 3.35≈3.35. So the GRE accounts you where you stand: if your level of the questions answered is for instance 4.0 or rather 2.80.

The Number of Questions Answered in the Time Allotted – this is much more simple to grasp of the first concept explained above: the GRE takes into account likely the numbers of questions you answer correctly in each of the two sections, both quant and verbal.

From a mathematically standing point

Keep in mind that the sections that pop up in front of you, usually, do not have a systematic order: usually you first have the AWA, then the verbal section and then the quant section. However, this unfolding could be a variation.

However, at the end of the day the GRE exam always will have two AWA sections, two quant sections, and two verbal sections.

1) The first section is always on a medium level, no matter how or what. On average will be on 3-3.5 level on a scale from 1 (the easiest question) to 5 (the hardest).

2) In the second section (both quant and verbal) If in the first section your correct answers were from 0-6 range, the second section will be Easy level.

If in the first section your correct answers were from 7-14 range, then your second section will be Medium level.

If in the first section you pick 15-20 range of Q’s correct, then your second section of the test will be HARD Level.


What are the skills are measured in GRE test?

The GRE General Test measures the test taker’s ability to do the following:

Analytical Writing

  • Articulate complex ideas clearly and effectively.
  • Examine claims and accompanying evidence.
  • Support ideas with relevant reasons and examples.
  • Sustain a well-focused, coherent discussion.
  • Control the elements of standard written English.

Verbal Reasoning

  • Analyze and draw conclusions from discourse; reason from incomplete data; identify author’s assumptions and/or perspective; understand multiple levels of meaning such as literal, figurative and author’s intent.
  • Select important points; distinguish major from minor or relevant points; summarize text; understand the structure of a text.
  • Understand the meanings of words, sentences and entire texts; understand relationships among words and among concepts.

Quantitative Reasoning

  • Understand quantitative information.
  • Interpret and analyze quantitative information.
  • Solve problems using mathematical models.
  • Apply basic mathematical skills and elementary mathematical concepts of arithmetic, algebra, geometry and data analysis.

The GRE Verbal and Quantitative sections are scored based on raw scores for the test. Your raw score is the number of questions you answer correctly. GRE Verbal has 40 questions, as does GRE Quants. So the highest raw score you could get in either section would be 40.

These 40 raw score points correspond to the 40 point range for official scores on the Verbal and Quantitative sections. Both of these sections are rated on a scale of 130-170 points in the final score report.
