GRE® Subject Tests are the perfect way to showcase your knowledge in a particular discipline, which can give you an edge when applying for admission. These scores are often considered in addition to admission requirements such as your undergraduate record and letters of recommendation — as well as GRE revised General Test scores — providing another way to compare your qualifications and aid in the evaluation of grades and recommendations. And the ScoreSelect® option lets you put your best scores forward. You decide which scores to send to schools. So, if you don’t feel you did your best on test day, you can retake the test and then send ONLY the scores you want schools to see. This can help you feel more confident on test day!
