Is it common knowledge that questions are repeated in successive versions of the tests? I was pretty surprised when I heard this. This tilts the scale heavily in favour of applicants who take the test multiple times
Are you serious?? If that's the case, we should email our protest to the ETS. This would be a HUGE disadvantage to poor people like me:P
PS: How did those people do btw? I heard that a LOT OF people who retook the test said they screwed up this one cause it's much harder than those in April and September.
I'm quoting a post by Latex on a previous thread:
"This was my third attempt. Last October I could only answer ~40 (with plenty of guesses, not prepared at all). I took it last month and I could do ~50 with some guesses.
This test was so much harder than both of those. I was much better prepared and had at least 10 repeats from the September exam and it was still brutal. I think I answered ~43 this time (0 guesses). It was so rough that I feel like the entire third attempt was just a waste of time and money. I'm just going to pick schools based on my September score and if I get a few extra points this time it'll just be icing on top."
