Sir – I will be applying for Fall 2012 and few of my friends and class mates have registered for GRE. I wanted to know if New GRE will be harder than older GRE? I haven’t started preparing for GRE yet.
Is New GRE Harder?
We have discussed about New GRE format, sample questions and if its better than old GRE in several blog articles. Here is link to few of them
You have sufficient time to study for GRE and try to take before New GRE pattern comes into effect on August 1 2011. If you are not mentally ready to write GRE exam in next 5 or 6 months then even if you feel that new GRE is harder, you have no other choice right?
I would recommend you to download New GRE practice tests and PowerPrep II. Take couple of tests. Then compare it with current GRE test. Then deiced for yourself, which GRE is harder. We can show you the directions, bu ultimately you have take action and walk toward the destination.
Recommendation: New or Old GRE – If you have confidence to take GRE in next 5 months, then go for it. If you are not ready, then it doesn’t matter if new GRE is going to tough, you made a decision not to take GRE within July 2011, then you got to live with it. If you happened to score low in new GRE later, don’t worry that you missed an opportunity.
