I was preparing my CV for graduate school application using Overleaf and had a question.

Right now, I have a section that looks like this:

enter image description here

What I want is to have the "(Date: )" parts aligned, and the scores aligned as well.

The code that I currently have is something like:

 \Large{Test Scores}
 & \begin{tabular}[t]{@{} l l}
 GRE (Date: August 18th, 2018): 
 & Verbal: 163/170 \\ 
 & Quantitative: 169/170 \\ 
 & Analytical writing: 5.5/6 \\
 TOEFL iBT (Date: March 16th, 2019): 
 & Reading: 30/30 \\ 
 & Listening: 27/30 \\ 
 & Speaking: 30/30 \\ 
 & Writing: 28/30 \\ 
 & Total: 115/120 
 \end{tabular}

I tried using a \begin{align} but the use of ampersands has left me a bit confused.

Any tips or advice are appreciated. Thanks!

  • align is explicitly math, and inappropriate here. I've added the more generic tag "horizontal alignment, which is what you're really looking for, but left (the incorrect) align because that's mentioned in the question text. Feb 29, 2020 at 19:22

Here's an option:

enter image description here

\documentclass{article}

\begin{document}

\begin{tabular}{ l l }
  {\Large Test Scores} &
   \begin{tabular}[t]{@{} l l l r @{/} l}
   GRE & (Date: August 18th, 2018):
      & Verbal:             & 163&170 \\
     && Quantitative:       & 169&170 \\
     && Analytical writing: & 5.5&6   \\
   TOEFL iBT & (Date: March 16th, 2019): 
      & Reading:            &  30&30  \\
     && Listening:          &  27&30  \\
     && Speaking:           &  30&30  \\
     && Writing:            &  28&30  \\
     && Total:              & 115&120
  \end{tabular}
\end{tabular}

\end{document}
