The score range for the verbal as well as the Quantitative section is 200 to
800. No one gets less than 200 or more than 800 in each of these two sections.
The Analytical writing score is a scaled score with the least score being zero
and the maximum being six. Each of the two essays is rated "out of 6" and the
average of the two is reflected on your GRE® Score Report. In other
words, if an examinee gets 5 in the issue essay and 6 in the argument task, the
scorecard will show the average i.e., (5+6)/2 = 5.5. According to ETS, two
independent evaluators evaluate each essay and if the score varies by more than
1 point, a third evaluator will adjudicate.
