An increasing number of students are taking the GRE for admission into Business schools. Its wider testing network and broader reach are an inherent advantage for the test taker. However, it has been a very short period since business schools have started accepting GRE scores for admission into graduate management programs. Hence, there is very little information available about the GRE scores of the incoming class at top business schools. Moreover, business schools convert GRE to GMAT scores to objectively compare all the applicants.

Now, new versions of both the GMAT and GRE exams are available: the GMAT Focus Edition and the Shorter GRE, respectively

So, how does GMAT score conversion work? Keep reading! As bonus content, we also share the GRE scores for the top business schools and shed light on how the admissions committee evaluates your scores in 2024.

How are GRE and GMAT scores reported?

Before we dig deeper into how to convert your GRE scores to GMAT, let’s first understand how are your GRE and GMAT scores reported.

Score reporting

Both the GRE and GMAT are standardized tests for admission into graduate programs at universities in the US and other countries like Canada, Australia, Germany, and the UK. Traditionally the GMAT has been the preferred choice of business schools for evaluating candidates for admission into graduate management programs. However, to broaden the applicant pool and increase class diversity, many of the top B-schools now accept GRE scores. There are a few fundamental differences between the tests regarding the format and score reporting.

Here are the differences between GRE and GMAT:

For the GRE the Quant and Verbal scores are reported separately and range from 130-170. These scores are simply added to give your cumulative GRE score. In the GMAT, however, Verbal and Quant scores are reported separately and then scaled to calculate your cumulative GMAT score. Quant and verbal scores can range from 60-90, and the scaled cumulative score ranges from 205-805.

For the GRE analytical writing section score range from 0-6, while new GMAT has not AWA section.

Comparing Raw and Scaled scores

ETS the organization which conducts the GRE has developed a handy tool for converting GRE scores to GMAT equivalent scores. This comparison tool allows users to predict the GMAT total, Quantitative, Verbal scores using their GRE Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative reasoning scores. You can access the tool here.

Percentile Scores

Percentile scores are provided on both your GRE and GMAT score reports. They represent the percentage of test-takers who obtained a score lower than the specified score. The percentile scores to which raw scores correspond to, for both GRE and GMAT, are shown below. Due to the fundamental differences in the applicant pool who take each test, the percentile scores cannot be compared directly. However, they can be used as a rough guideline for comparison.

The below GRE to GMAT conversion chart is based on the data provided by GRE’s Comparison tool for business schools. Please refer below table for GMAT Score conversion:

GRE to GMAT Focus (GFE) score conversion chart

ETS (the maker of the GRE) has not released any such comparison tool between the new GRE and the GFE, while GMAC (the maker of the GMAT) claims that no such table can exist due to the differences between the two tests.

However, for the sake of a rough comparison, we have used GMAC’s GCE to GFE conversion table along with the GRE to GCE table above to get a GRE to GFE conversion:

Do AdComs have a preference between GMAT and GRE?

Now that we know how to compare and convert between GMAT and GRE scores, the next question that arises is, do schools treat candidates who submit GRE scores differently than those who submit GMAT scores? Well, the short answer is No, and the detailed explanation for the same is given below. Schools evaluate candidates on many factors and test scores are just a part of a holistic process of evaluation. However, since the GMAT has been the default test for admission into graduate management programs until recently, schools unfamiliar with the GRE Test still prefer candidates that report GMAT scores.

“26% of admissions officers say those who submit a GMAT score have an advantage over those who submit a GRE score. The remaining 73% saying neither exam taker has the advantage.” – Survey conducted by Kaplan.

What does this mean for you?

If you are yet to take either test, our recommendation would be to stick with the GMAT. For the simple reason, that it is more widely accepted, and the GMAC develops the GMAT with a specific aim to evaluate the skills required for business schools. Remember, the GMAC partners with leading business schools to continuously evaluate and understand what skills business schools look for in candidates.

The GRE, though a leader in the graduate admission test space, is designed to cater to a wider range of test-takers and graduate programs. Hence, the GMAT seems to be a better choice.

Taking the GMAT also shows your commitment to business schools, about your decision for graduate management education. Reporting GRE scores may show indecision to adcoms about your selection of programs or even a lack of clarity about career goals.

We hope this article helps you in understanding how to evaluate and compare GRE and GMAT scores. And, if you are considering Business School, the first step would be to ace either test. If you are taking the GMAT, here are some free resources to get you started. Please write to us at with your questions on GRE to GMAT Score Conversion or any other issues.
