Sep 9th, 2013   GED Testing Changes Coming for 2014

Big changes are coming to the state General Education Development (GED) tests.

In January, the national GED Testing Service will replace the current five-part test with a four-part series that is considered more rigorous and a better indicator of students’ readiness for college and careers. 

Students who have been taking the current GED tests (active since 2002) have until Dec. 13 to complete and pass all five portions before the new GED test is release on Jan. 2, 2014. Those who have not completed or passed all five portions before the deadline will have to start over again when the new test is released. That means not only with they have to retake the tests, but also have to repay. GED tests are available only at official testing centers, not online. And, the new tests will be offered only on computer. The $150 fee for the entire test will remain the same in 2014.
