Multiple GRE Scores

"How does the Admissions Committee handle multiple GRE test scores? Are the highest taken from each test date? Are the scores averaged? Or, does the Committee look for improvement from one test date to the next?"

Any GRE scores sent to Berkeley will be reviewed by the Admissions Committee. The Admissions Committee will note any improvement from one test to another. Alternatively, if there is a significant decline in your scores, that will also be observed. Scores are not averaged, and we will consider higher section scores that come from two different test dates.
