According to the site:
"To reduce speededness, the Verbal Reasoning section will be reduced by five questions."

SPEEDEDNESS? :rolleyes:

Yep, no dictionaries of the English language contain the word speededness.

I wonder if the introduction of scores 14 and 15 will bump the distribution of the scores over a notch, essentially making a score previously worth X points now worth X+1.

"Questions on Alkenes, Benzene, Phenols and Ethers will no longer be included on the test." That must be welcomed news for the orgo-haters.

I wonder, though, how much a 5-q decrease in the Verbal will actually impact "speededness." From my experience, most either have the capability to finish on time or choose to skip a passage altogether.

Lastly, a little off-topic, where is there a link on the AAMC page to the updates page? I just searched around and I can't find it.

Decreasing the number of questions will not make the verbal easier. You still have to read very fast, as I found out while using EK's 101 Verbal passages which have only 60 Q's. If they want to do reduce the "speededness" of verbal get rid of a passage or two.
