WEBSTER COUNTY, KY (11/28/12) – Although the deadline is still a year away, officials are urging anyone working on their GED to be aware that major changes are coming.
Last week Kentucky Adult Education announced that the current version of the GED® test will expire at the end of 2013. The current version, known as the 2002 Series GED test, will be replaced with the new 2014 GED test on January 2, 2014.
“We want to be sure everyone is aware of this deadline,” said Reecie Stagnolia, vice president, Kentucky Adult Education. “GED test-takers must act now to finish and pass before the current test expires.”
Those who have taken the 2002 Series GED test, but not passed all five parts, have until the end of 2013 to pass or they will need to start over again in 2014 with the new GED test in order to receive their high school credential.
“The GED test opens doors to college, better jobs, the respect adults deserve, and the satisfaction of earning a high school credential,” said Mary Steely, County Coordinator of Webster County Adult Education. “So we want to be sure that everyone is aware of this deadline. GED test-takers must act now to finish and pass before the current test expires.”
Normally test scores expire three years from the date of initial testing. With this change to the test, the three year rules doesn’t apply. If all five tests are not completed by December 18, 2013, the entire series must be retaken.
“Support is available, right here in Webster County,” said Steely. “We can help adult learners get prepared to take the parts of the GED test they still need to pass. We want you to succeed!”
Interested GED test-takers can find out more information by calling the Sebree center at 270-835-7719 or the Providence center at 270-667-9992.
