Negative Marking

Postby Omega919 » Thu Oct 26, 2017 9:34 am

It might be a silly question, but has negative marking been removed from the PGRE?
The 2013 practice book says it is, but I can not find anymore information on this.

If you mean whether or not you still lose points if you get an incorrect answer, then the answer is:

An incorrect answer scores you zero points, instead of -0.25 points.

For the most up to date answer, always consult the ETS website: https://www.ets.org/gre/subject/scores/how/ Practice books may be out of date.

Ahh looks like I missed that page of the site, thank you very much, this will definitely help relieve some stress when I am between two answers :D
