Experimental Section With Testing Accommodations? [#permalink] New post 21 Feb 2019, 12:19
Hi everyone,

I'm trying to figure out something and I can't seem to find an answer anywhere. I was granted 50% additional time on the GRE because of some learning issues that I have been struggling with my whole life. I'm trying to find out if I have an additional "experimental section" if I have been granted this extra time, instead of just 2 AWA, 2 Verbal, and 2 Quant? If I did have this section, the test would be at least 5 and 1/2 hours not including breaks. Can anyone help with this? Or point me in the right direction? Thanks!

Hi,

I do think what are you asking for is impossible. The test is conceived to be "standard" for all teh students who take it.

You could just email ETS and ask to waive those sections. However, I do think that the answer would be 99.99% NO.

Here is the official contact page https://www.ets.org/gre/contact

I'm not trying to have special considerations in regards to the experimental section. I'm just trying to figure out if there is an actual section on the test so that I can prepare more properly for it? I called ETS and I got two separate answers. One answer was that no there wasn't, it's just 2 sections of each. The other answer was that I may get 1 verbal and 3 quant or vice versa, which would be very strange... So I'm just trying to clarify.

Hmm, appreciate the link. As I mentioned, I'm very familiar with the format of the test. I've been studying for it for months, plus I also have taken the GMAT. I'm just trying to specifically determine in regards to Accommodations if I would have an experimental section? If there is anyone who has had previous experience with extra time accommodations on the GRE, that would probably be most helpful.

Hi theboondocks,

My guess is yes, you’d have the experimental section on your exam. That said, why don't you give the folks at ETS a call to get a definitive answer?

A friend of mine sat this a couple of years ago I believe (my timing might be off) and had multiple accommodations due to learning difficulties and she said she was thrown off a bit as she didn't have an experimental section. You should definitely check though. I'd be interested to know as I also should get 50% extra time and breaks and I was working off the assumption I wouldn't have to do it. :)
