What is a "converted" GRE score?
Valid GRE scores are measured on one of two scales. For tests prior to 2011, a score was given out of 1600 possible points. For tests taken after 2011, scores are awarded out of 340 possible points. To evaluate applicants equally, we currently have to convert the new scores to the old scale. For detailed information about score conversion, please visit the ets.org. GRE test scores are valid for five years from the test date.
