Enjoy 50% discount on GRE test fee!

There is good news for all GRE takers. With the introduction of the GRE revised General Test, Educational Testing Service (ETS) will offer 50% discount on the test fee to all individuals, for a limited-time period, who take the test between August 1 and September 30, 2011.

The announcement appeared on the GRE website when ETS revealed a completely new test-taker section designed to educate potential graduate and business school students about the GRE revised General Test.

The GRE revised General Test will deliver many new features when it is introduced in 2011. Some changes are –:
1) More questions based on real life situation to analyse students’ thinking and reasoning skills.

2) New navigation features, including the ability to skip questions and go back to them later within a section for a better test-taking experience.

3) More emphasis on reading — and no antonyms or analogies.

4) New answer types, such as filling in a number or providing more than one response when asked, so students can better demonstrate what they know.

5) On-screen calculator for the Quantitative Reasoning section.

Speaking about these changes to the Indian Express, David G. Payne, VP and COO for Graduate and College Programs at ETS, said, “We know students are going to find the overall testing experience better with the introduction of the GRE revised General Test.”

Starting in August 2011, the split-test administration will be eliminated in China (including Hong Kong), Korea and Taiwan, and will be replaced with computer-based testing one to two times per month. Candidates appearing from those regions will be able to take the Verbal, Quantitative and Analytical Writing sections on computer, all on the same day. This change has been made to cater to growing number of Asian students taking the exam.
