Current version of GED test to expire this year

MERIDIAN —     Those wishing to earn a GED might want to do so before the end of the year when the current general equivalency diploma test expires.

    The test in place now, known as the 2002 Series GED test, will be replaced with the new 2014 GED test on January 2, 2014, Meridian Community College officials announced.

    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, according to an MCC press release.

    “The GED test opens doors to college, better jobs, the respect adults deserve, and the satisfaction of earning a high school credential,” said Jennifer Whitlock, Adult Basic Education director of Meridian Community College GED Testing Center. “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.”

    “Support is available, right here at MCC” Whitlock said. “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!”

    “To anyone who has already started the GED test, your future is calling. By passing the GED test, you can answer that call,” said Randy Trask, president and CEO of GED Testing Service. “You owe it to yourself. Don’t miss the chance to turn one small step into your next big opportunity in life.”
