Customer query regarding the new GRE format

Jacob wrote us today with the following queries and we wanted to share our response:

Do your products reflect the change in the exam? If so, how were you able to anticipate those changes and adapt your products accordingly in such a short amount of time? Does your product or website explain the changes in the exam?

Thanks for your query Jacob. Yes we have updated all our GRE practice tests to reflect the new GRE format which began August 1st, 2011.

As a recognized leader in GRE Test preparation materials, we were given access to ETS’s proposed revisions well in advance. Thus we were able to release our updates for the new format by July 2011 so that our students could get a jump on preparing for the changes.

We published a short primer of the new GRE format changes on our website but generally do not recommend that students waste any time reviewing any comparisons of the old and new format. The new format is here to stay and it’s best to simply focus on the current format of the GRE and make certain that you prepare with updated materials such as our GRE Practice Tests.

About the New GRE Score Scale

Many of you have been asking us about the scoring used by our New GRE Practice Tests for the revised General Test. So we wanted to write a quick note regarding the New GRE Score Scale and how it affects you.

It’s important to note that ETS will not be releasing any scores for the new GRE until November of this year. Only at that time will the “scoring curve” be set. Clearly, ETS intends to use the time between when they receive the first new GRE results in August and when they produce scores for those results in November to evaluate the various elements of the new format and how they will play into students’ overall scores. We expect they will provide a little guidance regarding score range percentiles and additional data at that time.

Until the “scoring curve” is set - we’ll continue to use a curve extrapolated from data gathered with the “old” GRE format to calculate revised scores in the new 130-170 point range for our practice tests. For your reference, our practice tests also provide an approximation of your scores under the “old” 200-800 score scale and will continue to do so until at least November.

Feel free to post any questions regarding this in the comments below - or reach out to us directly on facebook or twitter.
