An ACT writing section score is recommended.
Posted on August 1, by Rachel This is what I always wanted to see on my tests! When it comes to tests — or really grades in general — I am a perfectionist. Every question I missed on a test was one that I could have gotten right.
And if we were ever told just our grade, without a chance to look over the tests, I was the one who would angst over which questions I might have missed. Yeah, not healthy, I know.
And I got over it somewhat in college. I still worked my hardest and fought for those good grades, but with the increased difficulty of coursework as I got to my junior and senior years I focused more on comprehension of the material than on the actual numerical grade.
And I knew I did well, from the moment I looked at my score report, because I knew the average scores and where mine fell on the spectrum.
And more importantly, what score do I need to get into the graduate program I want? To answer these questions, it behooves both me and you to take a closer look at this crazy new scoring system, and what the key differences are.
How is the new GRE scored? The essays — still scored on the old scale, Math — out of instead of Verbal — out of instead of The math and verbal sections are each scored on a range from tofor a total out ofwhich if my math is right adds up to 81 possible total scores, in increments of one point each.
Looking at just the base percentages, anything over on a given section would be decent, and anything over would be pretty close to excellent. So, why the change? Way too much room for confusion in comparing scores.
But now, if I score a and you score astill one incremental score apart, it looks much closer.
Keep in mind, this is just an estimate! Oh, and one big thing to remember about scores on the new GRE! After that, scores should be out within weeks like before. We are addressing all of your questions as best we can in a series of posts, the first of which can be found here.
