The Revised GRE and the Old 200 – 800 Score Format

As you know, the Revised GRE has a new scoring scale.  For:

GRE Verbal: 130 – 170

GRE Quantitative: 130 – 170

GRE Writing: 0 – 6

The scores on the new scale  will not  be released  until  November of 2011.

It is interesting that those  who are taking the Revised GRE are receiving instant score approximations based on the old 200 – 800 scale.

In the words of GRE:

“Viewing unofficial scores:

At the test center, from August through November, you will see score ranges on the Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning sections based on the prior 200 – 800 score scale. Because of the essay scoring process, you won’t be able to view your Analytical Writing scores at that time.

Starting in December, you will see your unofficial Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning scores at the test center. Scores will be based on the 130 – 170 score scale, in 1-point increments.”
