GED Test to Change

Adults working toward their GED are urged to complete it as quickly as possible as major changes in the test are coming next year.

Kentucky Adult Education has announced 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.

People who have taken the 2002 Series GED test, but have not passed all five parts, have only until December 18, 2013, to take the current test. If they do not pass all five parts by December 18, 2013, they will need to start over again in 2014 with the new GED test. More than 16,000 Kentuckians have passed parts, but not all, of the current GED test version.

Owensboro Community and Technical Colleges SkillTrain is the adult education center for the Owensboro region.

We want to be sure everyone is aware of this deadline, said Vicki Boyd, OCTC director of adult education. We urge our students to act now and finish before the current test expires.
