General GRE

  1. Mar 9, 2013 #1
    So I got a 160 (81%-tile) on the quantitative reasoning section of the general GRE which is embarrassing for a math\physics major! I've gotten straight A's including graduate classes like quantum field theory, differential geometry etc; I think I just made mindless arithmetic errors on the GRE which I am very prone to.

    I'd rather not spend another $200 to retake. Is this okay? If someone does well on the physics GRE subject test, will a school mostly overlook a poor general score?

    It's ok, no one will care, much less so with good grades in graduate courses.
