IR is brand new (so new, it's not even out yet). The GMAC will be establishing a baseline for scoring and remember, IR is not part of the 200-800 score. It is scored along the lines of the essay (its own score).
I wouldn't worry too much about this change. If do well on the essay and do well on the scored part of the test, you should be fine.
Hi mohater ,
Even i am confused to go for gmat before the change or after. It depends on my level of preparations and the score that i will be getting in the Practice Cats.
If you like my post, Press +1 KUDO. It is the best way to say Thanks .
