Things to remember while taking CBT GRE


Computer Based Exam
After months of hard work your day is finally here. You must have spent your previous months in acquiring lot of tools and techniques that will help you in boosting your GRE score. But do not forget GRE is a computer based test and there are certain conventions to take computer based test and you must aware to all those rules just like you know GRE performance enhancing tips. Here is one reality check; your accidentally triggered wrong button can put you in a complete mess and there is no way to back. So following are must read points before going for CBT based test:

Take Computer tutorials session seriously.
You will be given a computer tutorial 20 minutes before test (this time will be not counted in your test) .In this tutorial you will learn: how to use a mouse, how to select an answer, how to use the testing tool, how to scroll. You will be required all these actions during your test. So take this exercise seriously.

Don’t rush in clicking navigation buttons (on bottom screen).
There are six buttons (three on right and three on left) at the bottom of your screen .These buttons are read as: Quit, Exit, Time, Help, Confirm, Next. If you will hit ‘quit’ button (even unwittingly) then you will be abandoned from that section on which you are working currently or may be from whole test. There will be no way to bring you back in the test again. Similarly, choosing ‘exit’ you will be terminated from the test immediately. Clicking on ‘time’ will stop time information at the top of your screen as result of that you will be unable to pace up with time. Carefully hit on ‘confirm’ button because once you have confirmed your answer you will be unable to change it.
Take your time in answering questions.


You can not skip tough questions for later answering due to computer adaptive nature of test. Same time you have no option to change your answer later. So go through each question thoroughly and give each question its due time .Do not get bogged down on just one question only. Same time, do not rush in answering questions.

Only worry about on screen question.
While taking your test if you realize that you have answered some question wrong in previous section then do not bug yourself in second guessing because there is no way to change it now. Just pay attention only on question which is displaying on screen
.
Have vigilant approach towards five-minute warning.
There will be a system generated alert message that will flash on your screen just 5 minutes before ending of each section. At this time you can do random guessing for tough questions because we know that there is no negative marking, so it is suggested doesn’t leave any question unanswered even when you are running out of time.
