Dang so I just did my GRE, which was fun mostly because I got to drive over the summit into San Jose and back in the midst of no traffic. It was computerized, so I was graded instantly... and I sort of did the reverse of what I thought I'd do.

Verbal: A disappointing 530 :(
Quantitative: An exciting 680 :D

That 530 is down from 720 verbal when I took my SAT! Soooo... I might take it again after some extensive vocab practice. I did pretty badly with all of the vocab questions from what I can tell. But if I take it again I might do worse on quantitative... do they just submit the best individual scores? Maybe it depends for each school?

Whatev! Oh also I'm not single right now.

Well, that doesn't sound too bad at all! Mabe it works like the SAT in score keeping, where the highest in each category is the only one that counts. *shrug*

Hopefully! I'd have to just blow through the quantitative again but it might be worth it.

do they grade the GRE like they used to grade the SATs? (as in 800 on verbal, 800 on quantitative?)
Jeffrey Carl Fadenjeffreyatw on January 20th, 2007 09:24 pm (UTC)
Yeah it is scored from 200 to 800.

Why not 0 to 600?

I think the base score might be 200 but you can lose points if you answer incorrectly? I dunno.

I'm taking the GRE Monday. Got any h0t tipz?

From what I know, all the schools you apply to can see your scores for every GRE attempt you make.
