The GRE Test results comprise four different scores: a total score, and separate scores for Verbal, Quantitative,and Analytical Writing Assessment sections. The total score is reported out of 1600 and the sectional scores are out of 800. The Writing Assessment section is scored separately on 6.
In addition to these scores, the score report also contains percents (%) below. These “% below” indicate the percentage of examinees that scored below you, based on the scores of the entire GRE testing population for the most recent three-year period. These percentages are important in considering how an applicant for admission to a particular management school compares with everyone in the specified period, with all other applicants to the same school, and with students already enrolled at the school.
