Thank you for using the timer!
We noticed you are actually not timing your practice. Click the START button first next time you use the timer.
There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I know a lot of people who got high GMAT scores put them on their resume, do you think I should put my GRE score on my resume? I was on the mid 80 percentile range on both sections. Or do recruiters still think a high GRE is not as impressive as a high GMAT?
As Jon mentioned, it depends on the industry. For some of the more discerning ones, it's mandatory. As jontron correctly mentioned, your score should be at least mid 90s in percentile, right (this holds true for the GRE too)? In that case, at the bottom of your resume where you have your education component, it wouldn't hurt to use one bullet (either full horizontal or half a column if split in 2) where you say "GRE | 9Xth percentile".
It is merely another data point and it's one worth showing off. However, it keeps it off the main part of the resume and if they read through the whole thing, it can act as a differentiator.
However, the point in that is the top half of your resume needs to convert the reader and make them read the other half. That way, if they think you're in contention, that might stand out to them. However, if the first half doesn't, then you haven't wasted time telling them a standardized test score and put your best material forward.
If it's good you can add it (my definition of good is similar to what's already been posted). However, if you are still applying to schools and also applying to jobs, potential employers may ask about your grad school plans upon seeing that you've already taken the exam.
If you're post grad and considering adding it to your resume, I'd see what your career office has to say about it. _________________
mid ~80% on both Verbal and Quant sections for the GMAT means a 90+ percentile overall score. Not sure if that holds true for GRE.
Well, here's the other thing: 80% GMAT Q > 80% GRE Q Why? Different applicant pools. The GMAT is by and large taken by MBA students, while also by MAcc, MFin, PHD, etc, but the bottom line is all those guys (and girls) are going for business degrees where quant matters. The GRE is basically taken by every non-professional graduate school. Law, Medical, and Dental all have their own exams. GRE is taken by engineers, art history, psychology, education etc, etc, you get my point.
Different applicant pools are going to result in different percentiles and it's not really a fair comparison to rate someone who scored in the 80% in quant vs. other GRE takers against someone who scored 80% in quant vs all GMAT takers. _________________
