ETS will offer only Revised GRE format starting Aug 1, 2011. One of frequently asked questions among in last few weeks have similar tone – “When should I take GRE Exam? Should I wait and register for Revised GRE?”
Take GRE Now
My advise goes like this – If you plan to apply for Graduate School in USA within next 5 years, take GRE in current pattern.
You could be in first, second or third year of bachelors degree, but try to take GRE before new pattern comes into effect.
You will always have an option to take GRE in new pattern, but if you miss this opportunity, its gone forever.
After you read this, you might have following questions
I’m in second year and have no clue about GRE, do you think, I have sufficient time to prepare to register for GRE in current pattern?
My answer is the same as above. I don’t care if you are scared and fear GRE test. Change your mindset and take your GRE NOW!
I get more energy while trying to reach unrealistic goals. It bring the best in me. Take up this opportunity as a challenge and push yourself to test your limits.
After reading this post, if you have decided to take the GRE in current pattern, do let me know. If you think revised GRE is better than current pattern, I would like to know the reasons too.
Update : In next post, I will blog about cons of revised GRE pattern.
