Hi !

I happen to get an email from GMAC.
IT was a survey. They asked me following questions :

1. Would you like to take Verbal & Quant exam on 2 separate dates? (It may cost you an additional $30)
2. How about reducing the time of the exam to just 1 hour each verbal & quant.

It seems to me these are a major sign of some major changes in coming years ot anytime.
Gear up guys!

Thank you for posting! This sounds very interesting and is an indicator that GMAC is moving with testing some of the ideas they shared at the GMAC Webinar earlier (https://gmatclub.com/forum/live-update- ... 42774.html).

This is very interesting news... i did not know how serious they were and it looks like they meant what they said. Interesting.... I am not sure if it is great or not. I am still trying to figure out if the new section order is great or not....

FYI - Usually they take a little while to implement certain features. For example, it took them about 1.5 years to roll out section order from beta testing to production, so I would not expect anything until at lest 2018 since they are only surveying folks at this time.

That's true, It will take them some time to implement this.
Anyway, getting back to current focus :)

Hi, I am a student preparing to test in the next year. So this kind of new info seems to be pretty useful to me. Can you share to screenshot of GMAC survey email to me so that I can understand this potential change in a more detailed way? Thanks very much!

Woah! What a change it would be!
May it be because fewer people take GMAT and more take GRE? I'm not sure whether it is a good idea though...it undoubtedly will reduce the level of stress on test takers, and thus might lead to better scores...
