    Hi hydrojen,

    No this is not allowed... in fact, you are not even allowed to report only the latest or the best score to the univs... they are reported all scores and they decide on wht it means for them...

    but chill... if you plan to take the GRE again, why should you not get an 800 in quant this time? with of course an improvement in verbal...

    best,
    Attraxion.

    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.

    It still goes on your record as having "cancelled" a set of scores. Universities are left open to interpret what this means.

    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.

    i contacted a couple universities like Penn and Duke and they say they take the highest verbal and the highest math score from all the scores you report. so that gives me a little relief

    Okay, so make sure you app to univs who have this kind of policy, and then you can retake the test with no cares...
