Screwed Up On Filling OMR Sheet on Physics GRE

Postby Deep2504 » Sun Oct 29, 2017 11:47 am

Hey All:

I screwed up very bad in the PGRE exam. The exam was good and all, I did most of the problems correctly.

The clock on the test center was at a very bad position; I had to look at it through angle, so I couldn't read the clock accurately enough.

I usually fill up the OMR bubble sheet at the very end of the exam. But since I couldn't keep track of time, I was late to filling up the bubbles. I only filled up ~55 of the bubbles properly. For rest of the 45 questions, I only left a mark on the bubble, sort of like filling 25% of the bubble.

Any suggestion on what to do now? This GRE is very important as this is the last one I can take before applying for Fall 2018.

Is it possible for ETS to manually check the OMR sheet?

You should contact the GRE services. They are the ones who can best answer this.

I had a similar problem last year. I waited until the scores were out and opted for a recheck(they say its manual). And... one week later, they reported the same score.

I am sorry to hear your situation.
Thank you for your suggestion. It is giving me hope if they agree to check it manually.
