no they are not guaranteeing that either they say

"Occasionally, delays in processing may occur. Some scores may not be available on the dates specified. Please call again."

I still think it's safe to say that on average one can expect to find out their scores on Wednesday.

If I'm too cheap to call in to see my scores from Oct. 18th, when can I expect to see them by mail? Do they send them out the same day as you can call?

That means the score sent by mail will be at my place around Nov,28, if the score report on telephone available on Nov,18.

Am I right? My home town is Thailand.

@sonwon, the score mailing date is listed as Nov 26th on the website. So it's possible that they would arrive on the 28th, but I would guess that it might take a little longer since its international mail.

Nope the mail will take at least a week if not longer. I am not sure why, but USA to abroad takes forever. It takes 7 to 14 days for something i send out from LA to Germany

I scored 830 (79th percentile), I kind of expected that as I only answered around 80-85, some of which were rushed in the last few minutes as time ticked out, I think I needed 900+ really, since I'm international and going for theoretical HEP, so bit dissappointed really (although could have been worse).

Not really sure where to apply to now, I have some UK schools as backups anyway, so there's always that, but I'm just wondering where (if anywhere?) I should apply in the US now. What places would take any international at this score? The rest of my record is pretty good, I have a publication, Masters degree, graduated top few in year etc so high GPA..

i called at around 6:45 am today, and my heart was pumping hard as hell when I heard the words "the fee for this service is twelve dollars" instead of "your scores are not available at this time"

I scored a 960 (94th percentile), which I'm really happy with. On the other hand, there's just a slight bit of regret, knowing that I was basically about 2 questions away from a perfect score.

I got a 980 (95% percentile) and I don't think I've ever been happier in my life.

Last year I got a 780 without very much studying. This year, I studied pretty intensively, but every time I took a practice test, I ended up missing 1/3 of the questions leaving me with scores between 790 and 820. I expected an improvement of about 50 points from the practice tests (due to better concentration and fewer stupid mistakes), but I never expected a 980.

I scored 810 (75%). Hopefully that can offset a 3.4 major GPA from a high ranked undegrad institution for a domestic applicant such as myself. And I'm only applying for HEP Experiment, so I might be a bit above the average.

When the system asks for "Do you want the score from the most recent test date press 1 or for a previous test date enter the month/year" immediately press "1008". It only waits for a very short time and it just assumes that you are calling for the Nov test, if your are not quick enough to press the month/year. This happened many times to me and finaly I figured it out. Hope this helps.

Wooooh!! Thank you guys for calling every day, I couldn't do it for free from Spain. I had to wait 8 hours to get my registration number, but finally...990(96)!!! I don't have to drop those top 5 schools, this is what I needed to overcome my lack of publications. Cross fingers for the TOEFL, and I'll have a big chance to get in Columbia or San Diego :) Good luck for those of you who are still waiting! You'll get very nice scores, trust me!

Congrats secander2!, absofuckinglutely awesome! The day I heard my score I think was the most exciting event in my life too. Granted I haven't had much excitement in my life... the other possible moment was when I was on a cruise to the bahamas with grandma. There was a hurricane nearby and the trip was a disaster but they had bingo games each night (for money) and kids were even allowed to play! I won the jackpot the last evening. I won $1725, and for an 8 year-old kid it felt like I had won the world. :lol:

Nice work to the rest of you too! It's interesting that an 810 is 75% this year... it was 77% last year and even higher before that. Apparently there has been a steady increase in student scores over the years.

In fact, due to this increase in scores, I had predicted back in April that a 990 would be 96% this year, and it turns out to be true!

On April 16th, quizivex wrote:As people seem to be getting higher scores, I'm going to officially predict right now that when students in this coming fall (2008) get their scores, a 990 will be 96th percentile, instead of the 97th that it's been in the past.


Wouldn't life be so much easier if ETS would just announce on their website when subject test scores become available? I'd be easier for them since they wouldn't have to process a million calls a day in their phone system, and the students could just check the website instead of spending several minutes going through promps. I still remember my registration number today after having typed it so many times last year.

Please help!

I enter my confirmation number from my e mail which is 0000xxxx
My test date 1008 and my date of birth 0415 but the system was saying like it cannot find my information from data base. What should I do?

Another question, is the registration number on first line of address on the envelope that sent me the prep-test material? If it is not, where I can find my reg. number, because I already sent the ticket to ETS so I do not have it now?


Please help?

My registration number was on my admission ticket, but since you don't have that any more I would call ETS (I think they have a helpline listed on their website) if your confirmation number doesn't seem to be working.
