Thanks, hadn't heard that. So I can say my 1980 1510 is now a 1540 lol.ETS changed the scoring system somewhere in the early 90's and the scores were increased. IIRC the typical score was bumped up around 30 points. Also IIRC it was the scores on the English portion that had begun to decline and precipitated the move. Kids just weren't getting as many writing assignments as in the past.
