Proposed Change in GRE cancelled
Long awaiting change in GRE  which was scheduled from September 2007 now scraped by ETS. Now you have to go for current GRE pattern. Read Details

All the details that is given here becomes redundant.

 

Change In GRE Pattern from September 2007
ETS is completing the most significant overhaul of the Graduate Record Examinations (GRE) General Test in the test’s 60-year history. The revamped GRE General Test will be offered for the first time in September 2007.

Why is the GRE changing?
ETS trying to improve the validity of the GRE, ETS is changing the GRE in order to provide graduate schools with better information on an applicant's performance. Each of the GRE General Test’s three sections — Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning, and Critical Thinking and Analytical Writing — will have different types of questions and new formats,

*One section may be experimental and number of questions yet to be decide.


Highlights:

>>> The new GRE General Test will be slightly over four hours long, an increase from the current two-and-a-half-hour exam. It will also no longer be offered in a computer-adaptive format, where the difficulty of the test is determined by the test taker’s right or wrong answers. Instead, it will be offered in a linear format, in which every student takes the same exam.

>>> Unlike the current exam, each version of the revised GRE General Test will be used only once, and no test takers will encounter the same questions on different dates. Instead of continuous testing, the exam will be given 29 times a year worldwide. The number of administrations in any given region will depend on the test volumes in that region.

>>> The revised GRE General Test will be administered in the ETS global network of Internet-based test centers and through Thomson Prometric, the world’s largest computer-based testing network.

>>> Registration for the revised GRE General Test begins on July 1, 2007. The current GRE General Test will no longer be offered after July 31, 2007.

Changes in the Verbal and Quantitative Score Scales
>>> The new score scales will have 40–50 scale points. The scales will increase in one-point increments and will be centered between 120 and 179. The actual score ranges will be finalized in 2007 based on field test results.
>>> A concordance table to compare old and new Verbal and Quantitative scores will be available.
>>> The Analytical Writing section will continue to be scored using a six-point holistic scale.

Which GRE should I choose?
In the 2007–2008 application cycle, we hope that universities will accept both new and old GRE. Later ETS will release a conversion scale that compares scores on the old and new versions. The GRE scores are typically valid for 5 years. It is our view that the colleges will continue to accept valid GRE scores, whether under the new or old format.
 
Strategies:
1. If you are particularly weak in the existing Analogy/Antonyms section and strong at Critical reading /grammar/writing, you should try to delay taking the test until September.
 
2. If you are weak at Critical reading /grammar/writing AND strong at the existing Analogy/Antonyms, you should try to take the GRE as soon as possible so that you can take it once or twice before the format change.
 
GOLDEN Rule: The questions are probably going to be more rigorous, we urging students who can take the current form of the exam to do so. If you need more time and plan to take the new GRE, AchieversPoint.com will have a full-line of GRE Prep options that will get you the high score you want.
 
Is New GRE will be Computer Adaptive?
No, GRE which has been computer-based for the past seven years will no longer be computer adaptive Test (CAT). Each student taking that administration receives the same questions in the same order. The GRE will be delivered via the Internet to testing centers Thomson Prometric, the world’s largest computer-based testing network and everyone who takes the exam on a given day will receive the same questions.
  
Can I use Calculator in New GRE?
There will be New on-screen calculator.



New GRE FAQ's
Unitedfan Asks: Will the change in format affect students that take the old GRE test as in their chances to get into a good university ? Will the old GRE test scores be valid for next year or later.
Answer: ETS is going to publish a comparison chart "concordance table" from November 2007 between current GRE and New GRE. There will be no difference in chances to get admission. Old GRE score will be valid for 5 years.
