Important subtle clarifications questions about GRE format. [#permalink] New post 21 Mar 2017, 12:21
passages on RC take longer, how many passages are there per Verbal section?

Can I bring my own earpeice/sound blockerss (the ones that look like headphones- don't know the terminology)?

If I select my last answer choice in a section do I need to hit next on it for it to save? Will it be unmarked? Hitting next on the last question in each section should end that section no? What if I want to mark the last answer and then review some previous answers if I have time remaining?

caffeine during latter half, I feel like this is a good strategy? Would I be able to walk out of the center to buy caffeine or go to my locker to buy caffeine?

Any limit on the number of bathroom breaks in case I want to walk around if I'm done early on a section or just stand up in place(any penalty for this)? I have two spinal hernias and its just to much of a PIA to seek accomodation, not to mention I no longer have insurance. Being in one position for so long is physically painful. Can I just walk out and tell the instructor on the way out or do I have to wait for them to come in ? I had a painful GMAT experience a couple years back with instructors who were extremely unprofessional in this regard.

On a written GRE how much scrap apaper are you given? Do you have to handwrite your essays? On the GRE are you given a notebook with a marker or pencil?

Hi,



Can I bring my own earpeice/sound blockerss (the ones that look like headphones- don't know the terminology)? NO

If I select my last answer choice in a section do I need to hit next on it for it to save? YES

What if I want to mark the last answer and then review some previous answers if I have time remaining? YES you can

caffeine during latter half, I feel like this is a good strategy? Would I be able to walk out of the center to buy caffeine or go to my locker to buy caffeine? NO you cant leave the center or bring food/ beverages into the hall

Any limit on the number of bathroom breaks in case I want to walk around if I'm done early on a section or just stand up in place(any penalty for this)? I have two spinal hernias and its just to much of a PIA to seek accomodation, not to mention I no longer have insurance. Being in one position for so long is physically painful. Can I just walk out and tell the instructor on the way out or do I have to wait for them to come in ?

You should contact ETS regarding this before the test. Although I have a feeling your GRE experience would be quite similar to GMAT as they have similar rules

On a written GRE how much scrap apaper are you given? Do you have to handwrite your essays? On the GRE are you given a notebook with a marker or pencil? YES scrap paper is provided




Hope this helped.

Regards,
