Sample and practice questions for New GRE Formats is available. Back in December, ETS announced New GRE Exam format. Now, prospective students who were planning to take GRE Exam test in 2011 have enough time to decide which GRE format they want to take the test.

They have an option to take GRE Exam before August 1, 2011 in current GRE Exam pattern. If they miss the deadline, they would have to register for the revised GRE Exam.

Revised GRE Sample Questions – 2011

Just by reading few sample questions and take practice test with few questions, you cannot decide which GRE exam format is better. But, the following sample will give you much greater insight into type of questions that will appear in the actual GRE Test.

Now, you have see the sample questions and you should have spent few minutes reading the questions types. Don’t come to any conclusion just yet. Just by reading through the questions or skimming through the practice questions will not give enough information to make a decision.

Take your time, wait for more sample questions to be available from ETS. In couple of months, you will get to see more practice questions. More books for revised GRE will become available.

In mean-time what do you think of new format and question types?

    • Hi Bharat,
      Nice to see that you are doing M.Pharm. For getting admitted into US universities, you need to take the GRE and get atleast 1200 and above out of 1600. For a start Rutgers is a good university to do phd in Pharmaceutical sciences. This is located in New Jersey.
      Tc and All the best


  15. The Verbal section is very hard for non English speakers again. There is stil no balance between quantitative section and verbal section specialy for student from Iran. The quantitative section is very easy for us but high record in verbal section for us is a miracle!!!

  16. Hi! I just took a look at them and couldn't see any particular difference in comparison to the old version..
