The revised GRE scoring scale often leaves test takers (and admissions folks!) scratching their heads, trying to make sense of the 130-170 scale. Admittedly a perfect 170 on the new GRE just doesn’t have the same ring as an 800 did on the old test, but I guess 800 sounded weird back in my great-great-great grandparents’ day. Anyway, the ETS is kind enough to produce a concordance table with percentile rankings and a conversion chart. I’ve reproduced the charts of GRE score percentiles below:


Verbal Score Percentile Ranks

1699914940
1689814836
1679714732
1669614628
1659514524
1649314421
1639114318
1628914215
1618614112
1608314010

158771386
157731375
156691353
155651342
154611331
153571321
152531311
151491300

152521341
151481331
150431321
149391311
148351301

Now hopefully by knowing where you stand relative to your peers, you’ll be able to gauge just how well you stack up when it application season comes! Of course, if, for example you’re wondering about GRE scores for your engineering program, then your peers aren’t going to be exactly the same as the standard GRE test taker (think lots of math).
