      Hi Kati,

      Don’t give up! I know it’s disheartening to see a low score, but the GRE is a completely “learnable” test–it’s all about strategy and practice! The test questions might seem a bit bewildering right now, but that is true of any test that you haven’t studied for (how many questions do you think you would get right on a calculus test if you’ve never studied calculus before??). The key to success in the GRE is understanding the different types of questions and what strategies to use to solve them, and getting plenty of practice 😀 Don’t be discouraged! I know that with some time and effort, you can improve significantly! Check out our study plans to get an idea of what it takes to get a great score on the GRE 🙂

      Hi Anish,

      This test cannot come close to estimating that, because it is only a quarter of the questions you would answer in verbal. If you really want to estimate a verbal score based on rough approximation, we can say 7*4 = 28, 28+130 = 158 so your likely verbal outcome based on this might be 153-161.
