Alette Posted September 13, 2010 Share Posted September 13, 2010 This has the potential to be a very dumb question - humor me. As I'm gearing up for the application season rush, I've been browsing the archives here and I noticed something. A lot of people have expressed worry over GRE subject scores of about 540-550 (or thereabouts). I took the GRE subject test 3 years ago. My score was 520; the website says that I'm in the 39% percentile. My question is: is this still accurate? Does your percentile change/is the report on the ETS old and inaccurate? It seems like a big jump from a 520/39% to a 540/48% (for instance) because it's only a 20 point difference. Or is it simply that many people end up somewhere in the low to mid 500s? Although I'm also forgetting how it's scored. The person who got a 540 answered (perhaps) 20 more questions correctly than I, correct? I'm looking for a way out of taking this test again, although I know I'll end up sitting it anyway. Gah! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
