What is a Good GRE Score for Pakistani Applicants?

Posted by on May 22, 2012 in GRE, GRE Scores | 141 comments

At BrightLink Prep Lahore, all of our students ask us what a good score on the new revised GRE is. A good score depends on a lot of factors like your choice of university, program that you are applying to, whether or not you are asking for financial assistance etc.

Generally, we strongly advice all applicants from Pakistan (irrespective of their credentials) to aim for an above average score on the GRE. Here are some key factors that will help you identify your ‘Good’ score.

SEE ALSO: Average GRE scores of Pakistani Students!

Choose your program

Identifying the program you are applying to is of utmost importance. This is because the GRE score requirements vary significantly by program. For instance, one of our students who was applying to a dual masters program in production and operations at top 10 schools required an average score of 166 (Quant) and 154 (Verbal). Similarly some one applying to the Electrical Engineering school at top 10 schools would need a 169 (Quant) 163 (Verbal).

Choose your University

Are you aiming for a particular school which offers your program? Recently a bunch of our students were applying to MIT and the average score they needed was in the 168 range for math and 164 verbal. Similarly someone applying to Rochester would need 164 on quant and 158 o verbal. It’s obvious that good scores vary from school to school. Therefore chose your universities before embarking on GRE preparation.

Contact your schools admissions office to find if they have any special needs

Many schools in engineering for instance do not emphasize too much on the verbal or writing scores. However others are more stringent in their demands. Talk to the admissions office and provide some background of yours. Determiner is they have some special needs or “discounts”.

A word of caution: I’ll take engineering as an example here. A lot of engineering students who apply to U.S. are of the impression that all that matters on the GRE is the quant/math score. This is correct. But if your writing or verbal score is too low, this will raise suspicious alarms amongst the admissions committee. Therefore be aware of that. Do not let your self do below the average on the ‘unimportant’ sections.

What credentials do you have?

If you do not have an extraordinary GPA, work experience and research publications, then in this case GRE becomes of utmost importance. Nevertheless even if you have all of these, students from Pakistan must do better than average to improve their chances of success.

Many of us from Pakistan do not have “real solid” publications or work experiences. Above all, only a handful of our universities are recognized in the U.S. – therefore strive hard to do well on the GRE.

So what is a good score in re for a Pakistani applicant?

Well in our experiences all Pakistani applicants must do above the average requirements of the school and program. We say this because many of us are coming from educational backgrounds that are not recognized in the U.S. and on top of that we do not have any solid credentials to boast of.

To further hamper that, a lot of us also do not have research publications. In fact even if we do, not many of us have them published in recognized journals. Therefore for Pakistani students GRE score becomes a major differentiating factor. It provides the admissions committee a standard means for measuring your true potential. Therefore, take your GRE preparation very seriously.

A rule of thumb is: score at least one standard deviation above the mean score – irrespective of your background credentials.

      Hi Bakar,

      GRE is crucial for FB. Regardless of your academic prowess you must strive to do well on the GRE. Moreover having research publications is extremely beneficial. It will help you a lot. I would suggest you look at the FB requirements and make an application when you area ready. One word of advice though: Fields related to bio and medicine are competitive therefore work hard to compete.

      Good luck!

      Hello Fayaz,

      Now ETS gives you the otpion of choosing which score you want to send. It is called scoreselect. You don’t need to worry about it now as you are free to send which ever score you want to.

      Apologies for the belated response – lately have been engrossed in the FB flood 🙂

    Hi,

    I really want to get into Harvard Business School. Yes, I am afflicted by the “Pakistani Dream”. 🙂

    Even though I did pretty well in university (3.7 GPA) and really well in A levels, I dont do so well on standardised tests…I have been scoring an average of 154 in verbal and 159 in quant while attempting practice tests. Does that diminish my chances?

    • Avatar

      Last year the average GRE scores for Harvard were in the 160’s….i would say 154/159 is pretty average for HBS…Aim for something in the 165 range. However there are other factors too that would be decisive into getting to HBS such as your PS and LOR’s. Work on those areas too. Good luck!

      Hello Saima, You must take the GRE general test – it is compulsory. However regarding the GRE subject test i would suggest that you must check with your prospective university, whether or not they require a subject test. Hope this helps! Good Luck!

    Please guide me on this issue

      Hi, You do not need a subject GRE test for FB. You must take the GRE general before May 10th. Moreover if you require GRE subject then the FB will let you know once you are shortlisted after the interview. hope this helps!

    And how much do LOR contribute towards the selection? My advisor is out of contry so I hav a year old reference , which now I think is not very impressive 🙁

      I meant quantative. This greyed out text is actually very hard to read 😛

      Your verbal score is below par – Please do note that GRE is just one of the factors in determining your chances for FB – it is not the only factor. Other factors include your personal statement, the field in which you are applying, your GPA, work experience and nature alongwith your letters of recommendations and study objectives. in short you will have to really make sure that you polish all aspects of your application.

      LOR’s are very important. They corroborate your intent and qualifications. Get hold of the most up-to-date LOR somehow 🙂
      Good luck!

    Hi Talha,

    I have a Bachelors in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Southampton and a Masters in Aeronautics from Imperial College London. Ive been working in the Energy Sector in Pakistan since 2010 and am interested in pursuing a PhD in Renewable Energy which is why I want to apply for a Fulbright Scholarship. As the deadline for the application is just around the corner Ive taken the GRE in a frenzy and scored 150 in the Verbal and 156 in Quant. Is there any point in applying this year or should I take the GRE again and apply next year? Thanks.

      Hi Hassan, I think you are a pretty competitive candidate for FB program and you must not worry about your GRE scores too much. They are above par for FB and moreover you have other good credentials to help you get in….please be cautious too since in my experience FB is a bit reluctant in giving out scholarships to candidates who have already graduated or studies abroad. Note that this is in my experience and FB does not say any such thing so I may be wrong but regardless you must apply this year…..plus energy sector is one area where FB does offer better chances.

      Best,

If u think that it is possible then at-least what should be the required score in GRE?? please reply

          Hello Inayat. Well although chances are low to get a scholarship for business related programs, however it is not impossible. I would recommend you to apply for it and try to get a GRE of 325+ due to the competition while applying for funding. Moreover make sure you have solid work experience of 3-4 years to make a strong application. Good Luck

    2. I have 3.6 CGPA in MS but in M.Sc I only made 2.53 and also 2nd divisions throughout from matric. Did the US universities only look at last degree of my previous low marks can harm my admission or scholarship. Supposing that if I can make good in GRE subject + General

    • Avatar

      Adeel. GRE is an adaptive test and each question has different weightage. Someone who gets 10/20 questions right can also get 155 and someone who scores 15/20 can also get 155. It all depends what difficulty level questions you got right and which ones wrong. Difficult questions carry more weight compared to rest. But usually you will have to get anywhere from 28-34 Q’s on the math section out of 40 to get 155 in quant and 22-26 in verbal

        For PhD in political science i would suggest 155 on quant and 155 on verbal at least.

      Hi Adeel, you need to score at least 310 on GRE with 155 each section.

    Assalam-o-Alaikum,

    I just gave today the GRE general test and scored 308 (149 verbal and 159 quant). I have done B.S in Telecom from SSUET Karachi and want to pursue Masters in Communication Networks through FB. Is my score enough to get a chance in FB?

      WAS – Ali for telecom I would advise you to re-take your test and try to get your score above 163 on quant. Thanks

    i have a GRE score of 299 which, to be honest, is pretty pathetic. am currently working as a plant engineer at a leading generation company and have no time to retake GRE. Do i stand any chance of competing for this scholarship program? I was aghast at myself for scoring low but the circumstances were too tight for me to prep well. i was emotionally unfocused and mentally exhausted. I’d be immensely thankful if you could guide me on this

      Chances are extremely LOW – you have to retake it else no point in applying

      W.A.S Yes FATA students are given preference but the minimum score remains same for all students i.e. 138 quant and 136 verbal
