July 27, 2013

Do you know about the new ScoreSelect option that the ETS (the GRE test makers) introduced last year? It lets you decide which GRE scores to send to your schools – so if you’ve taken the test more than once, you can send only your highest and best scores. Check out the GRE ScoreSelect page on the ETS site for full details.

Then, for more information, join Kaplan’s Director of Graduate Programs, Lee Weiss, to get answers to some of our most frequently asked questions from GRE students like you. This video discusses GRE FAQs including the ScoreSelect option. He also addresses the common question “What is a good score?” (It comes down to what is the best score for you, and for the specific programs and schools you are applying to.) Your GRE scores are good for 5 years from the day you test, and you can now retake the GRE every 21 days.

If you have additional questions, please visit us on Facebook or Twitter. For more info on the New GRE, visit our GRE Test Info Center. If your GRE Test Taking skills need a boost, check out Kaplan’s GRE Advantage course, specifically designed to focus on essential tools for success on the GRE.
