On the Web site of the Educational Testing Service is a report entitled the General Test Percentage Distribution of Scores Within Intended Broad Graduate major Field, basically the mean GRE score for students in a given major field. The scores are based on the performance of seniors and college graduates who tested between July 1, 2000, and June 30, 2003. Of the 290 fields listed, "Classical Language" scored highest on the Verbal portion of the exam, with only one other field (History of Science) within even ten points of Classics.
Below are listed only those fields that have a mean of at least 550 on the Verbal. (It might be noted that only 67 out of the 290 fields even manage to have a mean of 500!).
|History of Science||605||666|
