will wrote:My actual point was that the GRE math is too simple to accurately determine someone's mathematics ability for the purpose of doing graduate work in physics. It does not surprise me that so many physics applicants ace the section, but as perhaps a hypothetical graduate admissions decision-maker, I seriously doubt I could interpret anything whatsoever about a student based on it.
