Scholarship Always Handy for College

Most of you trying out for your GRE out there must be having another oncern - that of getting a scholarship. In fact, most of you want to score those extra marks just so that some good samaritan helps you out with one of those gleaming scholarships that reduce your college fees to nil! There are a few colleges in the US that have actually tied up with scholaship organziations and websites to help students fund at least a part of thier course with scholarhips - one such institution being Collins College. It offers associate's and bahelor's degrees and is a private institution.

There are other sources of funding your scholarships too. You can always check out scholarships offered by the Government under the HRD ministry. And of course, there are the fulbright scholarhips that you ought to try out - they ar normally funded by the US government and the partner government. For example, in India - the fulbright scholarships are funded by Indian and American governments and there is a proposal to involve the private sector into this field too..which of course is great news for all of us.

Even if ou dont get a scholarship, you can aways work part time to cover your tution fees - and in some cases earn a surplus to send home! But as I said earlier, a scholarship is always handy - it will make you more secure as a student studying in a US university.

Revised GRE General Test Cancelled

Rejoice friends! Plans to introduce the Revised GRE gneral test in fall 2007 have now been cancelled.

Following is the press release from the ETS website:
In consultation with the Executive Committee of the Graduate Record Examinations® (GRE®) Board, ETS has cancelled plans to launch the revised GRE General Test. While ETS and the Board remain committed to improving the test, on balance, and after thorough review, it became clear that full access to the test for all students could not be confidently assured. The decision to cancel the launch was made with the best interests of test takers and score users in mind.
ETS originally planned to launch the revised GRE General Test worldwide in September. Instead, the company will continue to offer the test worldwide in its current computer-based, continuous testing format. Registrations in India, China and Japan, which had been closed, will be reopened in the near future to accommodate application deadlines. Likewise, registrations for the current GRE General Test will continue elsewhere.

The primary reason for cancelling the launch of the revised GRE General Test was test taker access. Plans called for the revised test to be delivered over the new worldwide network of 3,200 Internet-based testing centers. Despite the network's size, ETS officials did not believe that full access to the General Test for all students could be confidently assured.

Dont believe me, check it out on ETS itself!
