NO ....The GRE Writing section is scored holistically, which means you will receive a score from 1-6 for each essay, perspective and analysis.
Each essay is scored by two trained readers. If there is more than a one-point difference between the two readers' scores, then a third reader will grade your essay, and your score for that essay will be the average of the two highest scores. The same grading process is followed for your second essay. Your final analytical writing score is the average of both essay scores rounded to the nearest half point.
