Question from @Bhagya.
I need to know whether the GRE exam offered in February is a lot difficult than the GRE exams offered in October & November.
I’m hoping to apply for 2013 fall, and I thought taking the GRE in February would give me the opportunity to send my applications early before the 2012 December deadlines for 2013.
However several friends have told me doing GRE on February will be a disaster because it will be very difficult and people who they know, who took GRE on February all got very low scores.
But I’ve already registered for 2012 February GRE and I’m currently preparing myself.
Is it only a rumor or is there any truth as to what they say about Feb GRE being lot difficult compared to other exams?
I believe as long as I’m prepared well I’ll be able to do well, yet the above thought is nagging me.
Tougher GRE Exam
GRE Exam offered in February will be tougher if you are not well prepared.
GRE Exam offered in any month will be tough to anyone who is not well prepared.
Lets assume following scenarios
- If your practice test scores average – 300/340,
- Target Revised GRE Score - 315/340
- Actual Revised GRE Score – 300/340
If your target score expectation is more than your skill level, then you will consider GRE to be tougher irrespective of month you take GRE.
Stop getting distracted with rumors and start preparing for the exam. You can learn about Revised GRE and sign-up for free GRE course.
