Why GRE ranges from 260-340 and not 0-80?

As you all might be knowing the lowest score anyone can get in,

GRE      -  260
GMAT  -  200
SAT      -  600
LSAT    -  120

Ever wondered why so? Why don't they simply start with 0?Here is your answer:

Have a look at different reputed exams along with their score range and avarage score:

IELTS     Scores  from      0      to     9
TOEFL
  Scores  from      0      to    120     ,  and mostly being 90+ 
LSAT
     Scores  from    120    to    180
GRE
      Scores  from    260    to    340    ,  and mostly being 300+ 
GMAT
   Scores  from    200   to    800    ,  and mostly being 500+ 
SAT  
     Scores from     600    to   2400  ,  and mostly  being 1200+ 


As you can see , they are designed to have no overlap.

Infact these exams were recently revamped in such manner for this purpose exactly. So you can discuss your scores without any mis-communication! :)
