Hi. Im a chem major, just took the GRE..got a 790Q but a 550V. If i take the GRE again, can i take my highest verbal from one test and my 790Q score and combine them? Or is this not allowed. Feedback greatly appreciated!
Not exactly true. You can retake the GRE and cancel previous results with the testing agency. I have done this and am taking it again this month. Only the second test's results will be reported because they will be the only ones available.
Hey that was news to me, but since you're doing it... cool man... Are you sure you got your score earlier? what was it like?
I didn't elect to have the scores sent anywhere. I was going to pay the fee afterwards to have this done on request only if the scores were to my satisfaction. I took the test the first time with no prep just to see how tough it was and what I was getting into. I got only a 1000...like 450 math 550 verbal. I'm 29 and been out of school for awhile now and forgot all my math fundamentals. I'm testing again this month on the 20th after about a month studying full time. I'm also scheduled to take GRE again on Aug 1 to see if I can get even higher score the 3rd time. So basically I'll be requesting results sent out when I get a score I like.
I'm applying for a USAF officer commission and the GRE is part of my package.
