The GRE Test and Dyscalculia

VISITORTrying to figure out if it is common to transpose numbers. It take me 3-4 times to do simple addition or subtraciton on a calculator just to ensure that I am right. It is very frustrating, and I am worried it may affect my ability to go back to school for my Master's Degree, specifically if I need to take a GRE test with heavy math.

DYSCALCULIA.ORG: If you have dyscalculia, you may transpose numbers without being aware of it. You may transpose numbers when reading, recording, verbalizing, recalling, or processing. For instance, you may enter you ATM pin backwards, say 6347 instead of 4763, especially when under pressure to recall it (like at the checkout), or you may totally be unable to recall it. At an ATM machine, this will likely result in your card being sucked in, and then you have to get it later. This especially seems to happen with common sets of numbers like your locker combination, PINs, and passwords. You may have to keep a handy reference card but don't make it easy for a thief to figure out what code belongs to what thing.  GRE & Test Takers with Disabilities: Official Information & Contacts.
