In truth, it’s complicated, especially for the GRE computer adaptive test. Because both the quantitative and verbal sections are adaptive, the questions given to you reflect how you did on preceding questions and the requirements of the test design. So, if you’re answering all of the questions correctly, you’re going to start getting harder questions with more points available to snag. Plus, there is an un-scored section on the test and a separate research section, neither of which affect your scores. The problem is, you won’t be able to tell the real sections from the research sections, so you’ll have to do your best on them all. No slouching!The nice part about taking the GRE on the computer? Instant gratification – at the end of the test, you’ll be asked whether or not you’d like to see your score. You can click “yes”, see the score, and it will be recorded and sent to your universities of choice. You can click “no” if you believe you bombed the test, and the computer will record that you took it, but will not send out your GRE scores.

On the paper test, the scoring is simpler because obviously, the questions do not change based on your performance.

Both the verbal and quantitative sections can earn you between 130 and 170 points, in 1 point increments. The writing section can garner you anywhere from a 0-6.
