New Test In 2014

GED students urged to finish test by end of 2013

by Staff Reports

Officials are urging students to complete the current version of the GED test before it expires at the end of 2013.

The version used now will be replaced nationally with a new GED test on January 2, 2014.

Those who have taken the current GED test but who have not passed all five parts have until the end of 2013 to pass. All partially completed tests and scores will expire at the end of the year.

That means students with partial credit who do not complete all five parts by the end of the year will have to start completely over again in 2014 with the new GED test in order to receive their high school equivalency credential.

The cost to take the five-part GED test is $160. For more information, call 1-855-500-GEDS or visit the West Georgia Technical College website at www.westgatech.edu/adulted/gedinfo.htm .
