    GRE: Do individual high scores count?

    Sponsored Ad:
    Hi -- I'm new to this forum, but browsing it has been very helpful already!

    I am wondering about schools' policies regarding multiple sittings of the GRE. Will they consider the highest score on each section of the exam, or will they only consider scores that come from a single sitting?

    I took the GRE twice and received the following scores:

    First sitting: 168Q / 168V / 5.5W
    Second sitting: 170Q / 170V / 5.0W

    If I can choose scores from one sitting only, which one would be best to report?

    Oh my, what a terrible spot to be in!

    But really, I guess you'd take the perfect quant score, since a 168 -- > 170 verbal difference is immaterial anyway and a 5.5 --> 5.0 AW difference is also never going to matter. A 168 --> 170 quant score increase is not likely going to change anything itself, but I guess you could argue it's the most likely to help you, while the other two shouldn't make a bit of difference either way.

    Definitely second Zubrus' opinion.

    Those are almost identical to my two scores and I reported the second one.
