I recently heard that the GRE tests generally tend to get harder from September onwards. Is this true?
You guys seem to have dropped a real bombshell!! I was in fact planning to take my GRE in September( to improve my score), and the message in this thread terrifies me .Is it anyone's percption? Or, is it a proven fact? How do we verify the veracity of such a hypothesis that the test gets tougher after September??
C' mon, this news sounds as bad as the Sept 11 attacks.Someone please clarify....I'd be grateful for that!!!
greenhorn, dont panic.
even if this is true, and I really dont see any reason for it being so, the test wont change COMPLETELY will it? You will have to work hard prepare very well in any case.Give it your best shot.
you got a fair amount of time to prepare, so there is no reason for you to get terrified.Chill. You'll be fine.
Cheers and GOOD LUCK!!
I am also planning to take the test in September and so was terrified to hear this! Someone tlod me that you may end up getting 6 or 7 RC's and a lot of non-Barron words in the later months of the year!
Thanks for assauging my feelings.I understand that I have to work hard anyway, and this news should only serve to propel my study habits.Thanks a lot for bothering to give such timely advice.
Iam currently working as a tutor in a college, and am wondering whether I should study after taking a long leave(giving my GRE in September),or I could manage both studies and work.I am putting in 6 to 8 hrs of work per day(studying also in my workplace).Could anyone please advice? It is going to be my third try and it petrifies me after seeing some stalwarts in this website.I should concede that I had lived in a fool's paradise in my first try, without much preparation.I had not taken even a single practice test.In my second try,I prepared for a month and got a score of:Q-640;V-560:AWA-5.0.I had then prepared in solitude and I bless myself for having ran into this TM website.
Now, after becoming wise by experience,I have devoted a whole of 5 months,and am going the whole hog into preparation.Though my confidence has increased greatly,I wonder whether I should take a calculated risk by not going on leave.I know my story is not amusing.Still, I hope some good soul would spill some sagely advice....Please...
Well well well, I would do the "critical reasoning" this way..........
Has it been declared by the test conducting authority or this is a grapevine ??
So lets first verify this and accordingly we decide if we do or do not panic !!
Any one with any more RIGID info (like a ETS authorised weblink)than "I heard it too "???
If no one comes up with solid info then this IS a grapevine....if somone at all comes up we circle up and decide the new dodging strategy !!!
so guys n gals have funnnnnn...
