Following the success of the new GRE revised General Test, ETS announced another step in making the exam more “test-taker friendly,” with a ScoreSelectSM option.
On the test day itself, once test takers have viewed their scores at the test center, they can either choose the ScoreSelect Most Recent option, so only the scores from their current test administration are released, or the ScoreSelect All option, where all their scores from the last five years are sent off. Both of these options are free, and “test takers can decide which option to use for each of their [four] free score reports.”
For a fee, test takers can release Additional Score Reports after test day and choose one of three options: Either ScoreSelect Most Recent option, and only send their most recent test scores; the ScoreSelect All option, and send all their scores from the last five years; or the ScoreSelect Any option, in which they can “send their scores from one OR many test administrations in the last [five] years.”
These new options will certainly ease the whole test taking experience for students, lessening some of the pressure often felt on test day. And, “the new ScoreSelect option will be available for both the GRE revised General Test and GRE Subject Tests, and can be used by anyone with reportable scores from the last five years.”
