GRE revised General Test - August 3rd, 2011

An MBA degree from an international B-School is a valued degree. Taking the Graduate Record Exam (GRE) is one of the most popular approaches.

With the aim to make the test more aspirant friendly and more beneficial for B schools, the GRE General Test has been relaunched ‘GRE revised General Test’ by ETS on August 1 with important changes.

The new format is the first major revamp in the exam structure since October 2002. The new format makes the test the longer, and the GRE now lasts four hours. The GRE consists of sections on Verbal Reasoning, Quantitative Reasoning and Analytical Writing.

“With new questions, a new score scale and a new test-taker friendly design, the GRE revised General Test offers applicants a friendlier, more technically advanced test that is designed to provide graduate and business schools with even more reliable results,” informed David Payne, Vice President and Chief Operating Officer of ETS’s Higher Education Division.

With the freedom to move back and forth, edit or change answers, and skip and return to questions, all within a section, candidates have the ability to use more of their own test-taking strategies.

“New questions emphasize real-world scenarios and there is less reliance on vocabulary out of context, adding to the appeal of the revised test,” said Mr. Payne.

The new Verbal Reasoning and Quantitative Reasoning score scale, from 130–170 in one-point increments, will enable admissions professionals to better compare candidates’ scores as it makes small differences in scoring look small, while bigger differences will continue to stand out.
