Assessment for general gre score


Recommended Posts

Hi, i am an international student in UCB double majoring in math and physics. I just took my first general GRE test with a verbal:159, and quantitative: 169 and wonder how competitive this score is for a grad school application, either a phd in physics or a master program in math? In other words, do I need to take the test again to boost my verbal score?

If you're applying for a quantitative field, a verbal score of 159 is just fine! I wouldn't take it again. The main use of GRE scores in the review process, at least at most R1 schools, is just to cut the applicant pool below a certain percentile. 159 is well above the 75th percentile for verbal, so you're probably good to go ?
