CHENNAI: Educational Testing Service has announced that beginning September, the GRE general test will take less than two hours to complete – roughly half the time of the current test. This makes the GRE general test among the shortest among graduate, business, and law school admissions.
Registration for the shorter test is now open for test dates beginning September 22.
Changes to the test include:
Removal of the “Analyze an Argument” task in the analytical writing section.
Reduced number of questions in the quantitative and verbal reasoning sections
Removal of the unscored section
In addition to test changes, test takers can expect to receive their official scores much faster, in just 8-10 days.
