• What is a Good GRE Score in Revised GRE Test?

    Many of you might be interested to know what is a Good GRE score? and how much GRE score do i require to apply to US Universities.

    Score range for GRE is 260-340 (Including verbal and Quant).

    Here is the categorization of the scores. If you are targeting TOP 20 universities you have to get 300+ for engineering major. Any score above 300 + will get you admission from a Decent university.

    GRE Score Range About GRE Score Universities you can target
    330+ Excellent Grade A+
    315-330 Good Grade A-, Grade A
    295-315 Average Grade B+, Grade B, Grade B-
    280-295 Below Average Grade C
    <280 Retake GRE Grade D

    Any score below 280 is not Good. It is better to retake GRE or you will end with admissions from low ranked universities.

      Hi , I am Tanveer Ahmad ,Final yr Electronics Engg. Student at Aligarh Muslim University. I have a CPI of 7.18 ... i had applied to university of Toledo only as I had a senior in there.got an admit and full tuition scholarship.have received I20. My GRE is 315 and TOEFL is 108. With my CPI and scores I fear i may not get much good offers than this ,as i m much dependent on scholarship. Now the problem is i have applied to only 1 university as i was late in applying and got admit letter quickly. And i would be able to get my provisional degree by 9th july. so when should I apply for VISA and what r my chances of getting visa since i have applied to only 1 university. On my I20 ,9th August is given as the date to arrive. Please advice me how to move ahead.
