With the current GED® test series expiring next year....with a much harder GED® test release looming in January 2014...with the conversion to computer-based testing, most likely in 2013 (with associated increased testing fees and need for basic computer skills to type essay and take the test on computer)...NOW is the time to study for and pass the entire GED® test!
Especially those who have passed some of the five subject area tests on the current GED® test but who still need to pass other subject areas or attain the 2,250-point total score required for the mandatory 450 score average...2012 should be their year to achieve their goal of obtaining a GED® credential. Current series partial scores will expire at the end of 2013 unless they pass the GED® test before then. Don't wait...there are only 3 chances each calendar year to take each subject area test.
Don't wait...there are only 3 chances each calendar year to take each subject area test. As the December 2013 deadline gets closer, testing seats nationwide will be filled with last-minute test-takers praying they pass and don't need to retest.
Those who do not pass the current series will become first-time examinees on the 2014 test series and have to test on all subject areas. The new test is based on the national common core standards that is being phased into high schools now and the 21st Century Initiative, with an emphasis on career and college readiness. Much more study will be needed by most adults to prepare to succeed on the 2014 test.
