Did anyone else get a link for a gmat survey? For those that didn't it had multiple orders, timing and price points to chose from to see if the exam should be changed. But what stood out to me was the last question asking if test takers should be able to pay more the take the test over three days. Not even consecutive days but like take verbal one day, quant maybe a month later and the awa and ir another day as well.

This seems like a crazy question. The point of the exam is to be difficult and test our abilities. How is it's fair that people with more money can pay extra to take what would be an easier exam since they won't have near as bad mental fatigue. Opinions?

I wonder how many "Call a friend" opportunities will come standard with GMAT in 2020?

Thanks for sharing - seems GMAC is doing some market research. Usually this is the second step after some focus groups and brainstorming. I wonder if they will eventually allow taking the best score from a test to create a "super score" type of thing... they seem to be becoming very student-friendly. Must be the GRE competition?

That'll ruin it. Imagine focusing on one section for 3 months and then going onto next one. Expect 800's all over then.

With the lifetime cap that GMAC has put in, I believe they have to stand out on other parameters to be competitive. Also, I have seen a major increase in the number of people opting for GRE (can see it among my friends, acquaintances and the people I am connected with). May be I am wrong, but there is definitely a slight shift as business schools started accepting the GRE equally.

bb,

I did get the email and the link for the survey but never opened. I checked the email was from GMAC. What is your suggestion? Shall i take the survey, conditioned there is no deadline for it, or if is, i have not yet passed the deadline?
