Hi everyone!
I'm a GMAT retaker and I haven't tried the new GMAT format (different duration and # of questions) yet.
I'd like to hear from other retakers how your experience with the new test was like.
Thanks!

Hi,

To be true, the only difference is lesser number of experimental questions. Time per question is the same but a psychological change may affect you in the first test as you are habitual of using 75 minutes, though more number of questions too. But if you come with prepared mind set for practice tests, it will not affect that much IMO. I had a bad experience in the first test of new pattern. But after that it is going smooth. Only mind game is there.

Best of luck

In my very personal opinion, it does not affect your score. For example, an experimental question has equal chance of getting right as the main question because you don't know which one in experimental and which one is not. Therefore, you are going to put equal effort for getting every question right. Lesser no. of exper. questions equally gives you a chance of getting main question right as now probability of getting main questions has increased.

I know its messed up above , but it will be better not to think of that. Be prepare for every battle. Complacency is dangerous.
