With the ScoreSelect® service, test takers can decide which GRE scores from their 5-year reportable history to send to institutions. For TOEFL scores, test takers can select which scores to send from all tests taken in the past 2 years. Scores for a test administration must be reported in their entirety — test takers cannot choose to report scores for a specific section from one test administration and other sections from another test administration.
ETS may cancel scores for administrative errors (for example, improper timing, improper seating, defective materials and defective equipment), natural disasters or other emergencies, improper access to test content, identification discrepancies, misconduct, plagiarism and inconsistent performance across different parts of the test. If your scores are canceled after they have already been reported, ETS will send a copy of your cancellation letter to any institution or agency that has received your scores.
