     Individuals who must have their GRE scores reported to graduate schools before November 2007 should plan to take the current GRE test before it is revised. Prospective students have one last chance to take the GRE in its current form on July 31. 

     After July the exam will almost double in length, with substantial changes in content, including more questions on probability and statistics.  The format for the current multiple-choice section will also change to include questions of different types, such as truth tables and numeric response.
