Should I retake the GRE?

Recommended Posts

Yeah, the standard goal that applicants are advised to aim for is a combined score of 300+ and an AW of 4.0 or higher. You've definitely surpassed this by quite a bit, so congratulations and relax! If your GPA is also high then you could qualify for some merit scholarships depending on where you go.

Hello! I'm nervous about my GRE scores - my combined score is a little over 320, and my AWA score is 5.0. Should I retake it? Are my scores too low? So worried! Thanks!

You're scores look good - probably above average. The only reason to re-take it would be if you felt like you had room for improvement (i.e., you didn't study/prep at all) in which case boosting your score even more through rigorous prep might help earn you funding.
