### Where Do You Stand on the Sample GRE Aptitude Test Scale?

First the answers to the last set of quantitative questions:

Section I:

1. (B), 2. (E), 3. (E), 4. (E)

Section II:

1. (E), 2. (E), 3. (E), 4. (B), 5. (D), 6. (B)
---------------------

Now, assuming you followed the time constraints, add up your correct responses which will be some total out of 25 for the verbal, and out of 20 for the quantitative.  These yield a "raw" score which - when scaled to the no. of questions (relative to the original test) yields a comparative GRE score out of 800. These are given below:

Verbal:

Raw score/ 25..............................GRE analog
______________________________________

25.....................................................800

24....................................................750

23....................................................720

22....................................................690

21....................................................660

20....................................................630

19....................................................610

18....................................................580

17....................................................550

16....................................................500

15....................................................460

14....................................................400
---------------------------------------------------

Quantitative:

Raw score/ 20................................GRE analog
______________________________________

20....................................................800

19....................................................740

18....................................................710

17................................................... 680

16....................................................650

15....................................................620

14....................................................590

13....................................................550

12....................................................510

11....................................................470

10 ..................................................430
-----------------------------------------------------------

Now, add up the verbal plus quantitative  GRE analog scores. If you got 1250 or over, you'd likely qualify for Mensa (remember this is a sample facsimile test of the 1985 version, not the actual one with same no. of questions, time etc.). To get an idea of comparative (estimated, i.e.  plus or minus 3 pts)) IQ to sample GRE scores, see : http://www.iqcomparisonsite.com/greiq.aspx
