The Adult Education and Transition Programs division at Kishwaukee College 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 Jan. 2, 2014.
“Similar to when the GED test changed in 2002, when the new test goes into effect in January 2014, anyone who has not completed all five GED tests will need to retake all the tests in the new format,” Joanne Kantner, dean of AETP and chief GED examiner, said in a news release. “We are urging GED test-takers to complete the entire exam before the end of 2013.”
Those who have taken the 2002 Series GED test, but not passed all five parts, have until the end of the year 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.
“Support is available, right here at Kishwaukee College,” Tricia Wagner, director of Adult Education, said in a news release. “We can help adult learners get prepared to take the parts of the GED test they still need to pass, or we can help them from the beginning to get started with the GED testing and preparation process. We want students to succeed and meet their goals.”
The AETP division has several GED preparation classes specifically designed to assist test-takers who want to finish before the end of 2013.
