For students who have not taken the GED test yet. You may want to push forward and complete the exam before the end of the current year. The following article gives some information about the coming changes.
BUFFALO, N.Y. (AP) — Adults who've begun working toward their GED are being urged to finish up this year, before the test for a high school equivalency diploma changes and they have to start all over.
GED Testing Service will introduce a new version of the test, given nationwide, on Jan. 1, 2014. Developers say the first major changes since 2002 will align the test with the new Common Core curricula adopted by most states to increase college and career readiness. It also will shift test-taking from pencil and paper to computer.
