Something Old, Something New, Someting Borrowed
The format of the new GRE will be:
– two AWA writing exercises (Issue Analysis and Argument Analysis) – each of which is 30 minutes. These will be administered first and will be reported on a 0 – 6 scale
– two GRE Verbal Reasoning sections – the verbal score will be reported on a 130 – 170 scale
– two GRE Math sections – the math score will be reported on a 130 – 170 scale
– one additional section. This additional section will either be an “unidentified” experimental section or an “identified” research section. If the section is “identified” it will be last.
Section Adaptive – Math and Verbal Sections
Although the content of the individual sections will not be computer adaptive (making it different from the GMAT which is Computer Adaptive), the second section of each of the Verbal and Math sections will be based on your performance on the first section. This is what is meant by “section adaptive”.
All in all the Revised GRE looks it will be a very interesting test!
