Since the Subject GRE is supposed to provide information about fluency in subject-specific knowledge, do (US) admissions committees that require the Subject GRE contextualize the score depending on whether the student has a master's degree or has spent a significant amount of time out of school? For example, would someone with a master's be expected to have a higher score, or would someone who has been out of school for several years be expected to have a lower score?

Or is a score a score a score, regardless of the context?

  • Every US institution, and even every department committee, will use its own judgement. Some will even ignore the GRE. – Buffy Nov 22 '19 at 20:00
