GRE score report

Postby mrfotih » Fri Nov 15, 2013 2:15 pm

Hi guys,

I have taken the PGRE test three times, but wanted to order an official copy of my my highest score to myself so that I can send its pdf version to the schools I am applying to. However, after talking to the ETS representative it became clear that it is not possible to do so. If one orders the test score for himself, they will send the results of all the tests taken in the past, so you can only send your particular score t o the score recipients, but I want pdf version of only the highest score.

Any advice is appreciated!

I'm afraid that the ETS representative probably knows more than anyone else here. The only thing we can do for you is assure that having multiple scores listed will probably not hurt your chances at a school too much.

Go to the page where you get to see the scores. Save page. Edit html as you wish. Print as pdf.

At least that's what I did, although I only took the test once. I didn't want to show them all my other score recipients.

WHen did you apply? Last year? They did not ask about it?

It's only the unofficial score. You'd have to send in the official scores (directly from ETS) eventually.

I'm applying this year, by the way.

ETS says "Additional score reports (ASRs) can be ordered for a fee of US$25 per score recipient".
I was wondering whether they send both the general and the subject scores together for $25?

They do, if you ask them to. You can choose to send only the General score to a school though.

Also, to the OP, for one school, they wanted the PDF too but I didn't want to show them where else my scores were sent, so I took a screenshot, edited the image (in a very obvious way so it's not like I'm trying to hide the fact that I did it) to hide the info I didn't want shown (e.g. where else I sent the scores) and saved it as a PDF.

I guess if you want to send only one score and not let the school know that multiple test attempts have been taken, then it would require a bit more work to photoshop the background so only one test score appears. You might not be able to completely hide the fact that more than one test was taken, but you can at least make it difficult to tell if you took the test 2 times or like 5 times, if you choose to do so.
