Recently, I have come across several posts in this forum that mention the test-takers have found the GMAT to be comparatively tougher than they did in their practice CATs (including GMATPrep tests). Few even mentioned that the verbal section is taking a huge turn. As an example, the following link could be visited:
huge-gap-in-gmatprep-test-score-and-actual-gmat-score-113701.html#p921665

If this is so, that is a big SIGNAL of catastrophe for the upcoming test-takers as they (including me) are getting prepared based on the existing material.

Could anyone with better expertise explain/try to explain why it's happening and how it can be well tackled?

Sorry for being disorganized.

This isn't really something people will discuss.

Look through the Share you GMAT Experience forum and you can come to your own conclusion.

In any case, shifts in the test are done slowly over time (i.e. 8 years ago, 750 was 99 percentile, now a 760 is a 99 percentile). The next major shift is next year when a new section is rolled out/the test is partially revamped.

Locked.
