The GRE revised General TesteUPDATE

Dear Colleague,

Great news! We are now just one year away from the launch of the GRE® revised General Test — beginning on August 1, 2011.

We thought it would be useful to devote this issue's Top Story to a recap of the exciting news we've shared with you about the GRE revised General Test so far — and what these upcoming changes will mean to both institutions and test takers.

We'll also share with you our latest video, "Around the World," which explores the rise of test-taker mobility, and offers important information about the GRE revised General Test to advisors and educators who recruit and advise students from around the world.

We hope you find this information helpful, and encourage you to share it with colleagues and faculty as we draw closer to the launch of the GRE revised General Test.

Sincerely,

The GRE revised General Test Team

P.S. If you have any questions, please contact our Helpline at GREhelpline@ets.org.
