A very low verbal score (138) , should I retake?

Post by physicsforthewin » Mon Oct 08, 2018 1:25 pm

I messed up my gre general, I am considering retaking the exam. A 159 Quant. score and a very low verbal score of 138 which is in the 7% percentile. Should I retake the exam or is it normal for admission to have such low scores? Please I need to know your opinion.

GRE score range is from 130-170.
138 (7%) is definitely too much below normal.
You definitely have to retake the test. The only universities accepting 7th percentile score are those not requiring GRE scores in the first place.
