I took the GRE two times, and unfortunately, I could not improve my score on the second attempt. I considered applying with my current GRE score which is 160Q and 140V.(Ps. English is my second language and the verbal part if helpless for me. I do not think that I can improve my verbal score; however, I can make the Quant better.)I am so confused about retaking the GRE a third time. Any suggestions for me?

  • You've taken it twice with similar results -- why do you think a third attempt will be better? – Kathy Oct 25 '19 at 22:43

    Perhaps these types of questions (standardized tests as they relate to admissions) warrant a sticked or meta question? – user97709 Oct 25 '19 at 23:09

thanks for joining the site. Others have asked similar questions here, here, and here (all relating to standardized tests and scores). You might also benefit from a general discussion about admissions decisions. There is a general consensus is that test scores are only one component of an application. You might consider focusing on a supplementary letter explaining the lower verbal score or focusing your efforts on other assessments of language (such as the TOEFL, if required).
