April 2013 PGRE exam

Postby tweetie_brid » Mon Apr 08, 2013 11:36 pm

I havent heard anyone talking about the upcoming exam.

I am going to wait until October 2013.

The new "Conquering the Physics Gre exam" book is helpfull.

I am using that book, and the practice exams..


Good luck to anyone taking the test.

When is the exact test date?

Hi guys,

Today , finally, I took the exam. Although It seemed to be easier than the practice tests, after the exam I realized that I did some stupid careless mistakes! How to learn avoiding careless mistakes? There were some particle physics questions that are too advanced for people who are not particle physicist! Any thoughts about April 2013 exam?

I took PGRE yesterday. I think I am gonna take PGRE in october to improve my score.

Do we really have to wait 6 weeks to get scores? What about online scores?

I hope after a month we should be able to see our scores online as it is written on ETS webpage.
But if they want to make money out of phone calls, they might extend online scores to the end of May.
Hey, Elena, do you need an online PGRE study partner? I am preparing alone for the next test also; I need a partner, at least online!

I think ETS is really good about the posted dates for the online scores. For the October test, the scores were posted in the wee hours of the morning on the Monday after the Saturday that marked 4 weeks past the test date, which was exactly when they said they'd post them.

Hi Elena,

I never tried online group before, though, why not? It is better than preparing alone, at least I think! I stay in the south (USA).
I've heard that some people work few hours per week on Skype together. If you have a a group around you can go with that; It is better than online group. But in my case I do not have people around me who are studying for PGRE; therefore, I want to try to find an online group, at least. If one prepares alone, it is easy to lose concentration or motivation, and also it is gonna be a lot of fun!

Yes, the time goes by very slowly. On the bright side, or the negative side (depending on how you look at it), 4 weeks is fast when comparing to the time it takes for graduate schools to decide on your application.
