I find it hard to believe that you have to finish in under 30 mins to get a perfect score. That means if I get all questions right (raw score 40/40) in quant and finish each section using the full 35 mins I won't get a perfect score? That's absurd if true.

Yes !
You can try it yourself in the GRE Powerprep software too! If you make all the math answers correct(40/40) and use the full 35 mins to solve both the sections you will get 166/170.
I am not sure how long ago you should submit your section to get a 170/170. I put a 30 min deadline(self imposed) and it worked. The real one can be anything between 30-35 mins.
If you are really adamant to get a 170 in Maths i would recommend a 30 min deadline.
I hope this helps.

Wow! Thanks very much for this bit of info. I hadn't the slightest clue. I got 170/170 (40/40) a week ago on the Quant section in Powerprep and finished both sections in about 20 mins average and spent about 10 mins reviewing and hunting for errors (So about 30 mins average). I took the second test a few days ago and got 167/170 (38/40). I definitely used more time on the test though I still managed to miss my 2 errors (Gutted).
I heard that the GRE Quant recently got harder and coupled with this new information I've apprehended I'm not overly pleased.
My exam is on Friday and hoepfully I'll be back here with good news.
Thanks again for the info Soumya :)

You are welcome man! Best of luck for your GRE exam! :-D
Some final minute tips I wanna share from my experience-

1. Always bring some food(like Mars bar) and energy drink (red bull, coke ) to eat and drink during the mid break. GRE is a very hectic exam. Its mostly a test of patience.

2. Mind the experimental section. Since you won't know which section is the experimental one treat each and every question seriously. Any other tactic can be counter productive.

3. If you have 3 sections on English (i.e the experimental section is English) you have to be extra careful to conserve your energy and mental wellness. Solving 60 questions for the english section can stress you out easily. So be prepared for it.

4. During the mid break, always be aware of the time. Even though the invigilator may ask you to come back when your break time is over, but there is always an odd chance that he or she may not. So try to guesstimate the time and go inside even before the break ends(10 mins last i checked).


I have a request to you once you are done with the exam. Can you please share your story in our Share GRE Experience forum? It will be really helpful as a guidance for other people who are trying to ace the GRE.

Lastly best of luck for your exam!! :good

Thanks a lot Soumya! Hopefully I won't get enervated during the test.
The experimental section is silly in my opinion but that's an argument for another day.

I will definitely do that (If it goes well, lol). This site is still inchoate and I'd like to see it get to the level of GmatClub especially as there's a marked absence of proper and populated GRE forums on the web.

I got 170 in Quant section, I used all time, even though i had given answer to one question in last 10 seconds.
I don't think so it is true, pls remove this post, it can be detrimental for students "who are preparing for gre".............

I don't think the time affects the score. Only the number of questions answered correctly matters. As far as scoring 170 is concerned, only practice can get you that score. There are lot of online and free of cost gre practice tests available. Recently I found Wiseswan to be very helpful. The quant questions are really good. And the analytics they provide is the key to identify your weak areas. Give it a try, it's anyway free of cost.

Remember to keep the Powerprep for the end. As they are the closest to actual GRE. You can take the practice tests before but keep the full length test for the end.

Rubbish.
"recommend a 30 min deadline" --> This is total BS.

To whomsoever it may concern =>
The Quant or the Verbal Scores are not effected by the time you consume for the section.
If they wanted you to solve those 20 questions in 30 minutes then they would have given 30 minutes and not 35.

Here is the link to read about this-> http://www.ets.org/gre/revised_general/scores/how/

Are we sure now that a 170Q can be achieved with using the entire 35-minutes?
I'd also say it doesn't make sense to have a 35-min. stretch to finish if they'd only give away 170's for a <30min. finish...
Can anyone confirm a 170 with 35min. used?

This may have been true when it was posted 4 years ago, or maybe not, but it's certainly not true now. I took PowerPrep Plus #1 last week and finished with about 5 seconds to spare in every section and got a 170/170. I would highly recommend using all available time. If you are rushing to finish the test 5 minutes early, your score is likely to decrease rather than increase. Hope this helps.

I guarantee you that not only Charles is one of the best tutors on the market (who takes 800 on GMAT and 340 on GRE is not a joke), but also that the test in 2012 is the same as now.
So if you rush out of time is only a question related to you NOT the test itself.

Moreover, do you think that ETS makes a test you are not going to be able to finish on time ?? I do not think so. They make a test bespoke you finish it. Otherwise, it would not have sense.

If you read carefully you will find that I was responding to the original post asking whether one must finish early to get a perfect score, not to your response about Charles. You and I are actually in agreement about this topic. Have a good day!
