The GRE ScoreSelect Option


Have you ever wished you could choose exactly which of your GRE score or scores you could send to schools? Starting in July 2012, you can.

A new GRE score reporting option, ScoreSelect, will allow students to choose which scores they send to schools.

ScoreSelect allows you to decide which administration’s scores a school will see—and you don’t have to decide the same day you take the test. In fact, you can wait until after you’ve received your scores to decide if you want to send them.

If you’d like to send your scores the day you take the test, you have two options:

  • ScoreSelect Most Recent option — Send the scores from the test you just took.

  • ScoreSelect All option — Send the scores from all the GREs you’ve taken in the last 5 years.

Both of these options are free; you can choose which one you’d like to use for each of the four free score reports included in your GRE registration fee.

If you don’t want to send your scores immediately after taking your test, or if you want to wait until you see your scores to send them, you have three options:

  • ScoreSelect Most Recent option — Send the scores from your most recent GRE administration.

  • ScoreSelect All option — Send the scores from all the GREs you’ve taken in the last 5 years.

  • ScoreSelect Any option — Send the scores from one or many of your GRE administrations in the last 5 years.

Note, if you choose to send your scores after test day, you will have to pay an additional fee per report to send.

Keep in mind, ScoreSelect does not allow you to choose scores from specific sections within each administration. Scores for a test administration must be reported in their entirety.

As per ETS, ScoreSelect will be available for both the GRE General Test and for GRE Subject Tests, and will allow students to choose from any of their valid GRE test scores.
