1 AWA + 1 VERBAL + 1 QUANTS + 1 UNIDENTIFIED PRETEST SECTION = GRE

1 UNIDENTIFIED SECTION can be either VERBAL or QUANTS.

Hope it helps...

Thanks guys... ONE UNIDENTIFIED SECTION?? Hmm, that is interesting.
So if I'm stronger in Quant. section, I better hope for another Quant. section?

One more question... Why does the CAT style exam only have one section
each for the QUANT and VERBAL as oppose to the paper-based exam?
Is that because the computer has the ability control the difficulty of the exam?
So, for example, if i get first three questions right in either verbal or quant section; until
I get a question wrong, rest of my questions are going to be difficult?? Plus, I'm little
curious about the time allotted on paper-based and CAT version. For example, CAT=45 mins
for Quant, however, in paper-based version 2 sections=30 mins each...
I'm lil perplexed. Can you help me out???

Thank you
