    officially its 5, but score older than 2 years is considered with less importance by universities. its better to plan the test 1 yr before u plan to go for MS. It will give u sufficient time for application process as well.

    GRE score remains valid for 5 years. However, it is recommended not to keep score older for more than 2 years

    Hello,

    If I have to go by the session considered, well then GRE Revised pattern is advisable. Though the GRE scores are valid for a period of five years, majority of the US universities recommend to re take the test if they three years older.

    As a counselor, I would strongly recommend that you take the sample test of the revised GRE, that are now available and decide which pattern you find easier.

    Find below the change in the pattern and then decide on the pattern you should consider :

    Change with the format of Revised GRE

    • You can go back to edit your answers.
    • Built-in Calculator is available.
    • New question types will appear in Verbal and Quantitative sections.

    Special savings of 50% when you take the GRE revised General Test between August 1 and September 30, 2011.

    Important score reporting information you need to know: If you take the GRE revised General Test during our special discount period of August â€" September 2011, your scores will be sent by mid-November. However, if you need your scores before November 2011, take the current test before August 2011.

    Whatever you decide, it should be done at the earliest since you don’t have much time if you decide on the current pattern.

    Though Learnhub is not yet equipped with the revised pattern of GRE, you may access the latest information and professional help from the below specified link :

But the prob is that i dont have any work experince and the scenario is such that no body will give me a job just fr 6 mnths. Evrywhere they ask for a bond of 2 yrs. I am scared abt obtainig visa.What should i do? Would doing some courses suffice?
    Plzzz help me.

    Hello,

    Please note work experience though benefits your profile, is not a mandatory requirement for most of the US universities for a Master of Science. Only if you are considering a Management program, you need to worry about the work experience.

    I do agree that most of the known companies will ask for a bond, but you can avail chances in Companies at smaller scale, considering just the experience you can gain without giving much thought to the brand name or even the monetary benefits.

    If the above does not work out, make use of the time by enrolling for an advanced course.

    Regarding the visa formalities, the process can commence only once university issues an I-20, a formal declaration of your acceptance to the university for the specified program. The visa cannot be issued until your SEVIS fee has been paid and the date of appointment has been fixed. The time span for the visa to be issued is more dependent on your proactive attitude and how early you can get an appointment date finalized.

    Do get back to us in case of further queries.

    Take care!

    Thank You

    Hello Ansh,

    Thanks for approaching Learnhub for your queries!

    You can surely go ahead with the current GRE and TOEFL scores. Your GRE scores are valid for five years while the TOEFL scores are valid for two years. Considering this your scores would be considered as valid while you apply for Spring 2013.

    In fact your scores are pretty decent. I believe you must be looking out for Universities you can apply to. To know about the Universities you can apply to and other relevant details, you can share other credentials with us such as your academic records and the program under consideration.

    You can either post your comments for the same or can reach me at ankita.arora@learnhub.com

    We would be happy to assist you in taking further decisions in this respect.

    Good Luck!

    Hi,
    I took GRE (1340) and TOEFL (109) in November 2009.
    I am planning to apply for spring 2013. Do I need to take the tests again or do my scores still hold good?

    Hello,

    Your GRE score is valid for five years after taking the test. While TOEFL is valid for two years. Thus its only TOEFL you need to retake.

    Your GRE score holds good.

    We can suggest you Universities for admission for Spring 2013 admission intake.

    For this kindly let me know the program you wish to apply for.

    You can either post your comments or can reach me at ankita.arora@learnhub.com

    Hope to hear from you soon!
