Did you take the old GRE? I took it 3 years ago and I am planning to take the new GRE because I didn't score good in the verbal. Why the new verbal is much harder? I thought it would be much easier. Did you get many hard words?
Just took the GRE test today, and it was much more difficult than I thought. I did not have enough time to finish the last quant question on both sections. And the Verbal was tough. I scored on the practice test 750-800Q, and 540-650V. On the actual exam today I scored 740-800Q and 340-440V. The test was not easier but actually more difficult compared to the old one.
I won't unless the percentile is too low. The purpose of the New GRE is too have the normal distribution. So if too many people get high score now, ETS might increase the difficulty to skew the distribution back to normal. Thus, the later exam might be more difficult. And I think my score is good enough, 'cuz schools look at overall performance. My friends got into Johns Hopkins, Cornell with 340-360 on Verbal.
