Still confusing... the truth is we can not decide which pattern we gonna take... of course, everyone has to take the new format if ADA changes it.

What is confusing about it......people who take exams this year will take the same format that is in use now.......their scores will definitely be considered....but people who take the exam from januaury 2007 have to take the new format.....I think this concept is simple.....r u talking about the format or something else????
