RLC reminds adult learners GED test expires at end of 2013 | News
INA, IL (KFVS) - Those pursuing their GED need to be aware of a major change coming to the GED test, and Rend Lake College is encouraging students to finish and pass the test before the end of 2013.
According to RLC, the current version of the GED test will expire at the end of 2013. This version, known as the 2002 Series GED test, will be replaced with the new 2014 GED test on January 2, 2014.
The GED test contains five parts that can be taken separately, but all must be passed to receive a high school credential. GED test-takers who have started the 2002 Series GED test, but not finished and passed every section, have until the end of 2013 to do so. Otherwise, their scores will expire, and they will have to start over again with the new 2014 GED test.
“The GED test opens doors to college, better jobs, the respect adults deserve, and the satisfaction of earning a high school credential,” said Christina Hutcheson, Director of Adult Education and Literacy at Rend Lake College. “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. We don’t want any of our GED students to have to start over with the new test.”
The new 2014 GED test will be based on emerging national and state standards. It will offer dual performance levels where test-takers can earn the high school equivalency credential as well as an additional endorsement that indicates career and college readiness. The test will be delivered solely on computer and offered only in official testing centers.
“Support is available right here,” said Hutcheson. “We can help adult learners get prepared to take the parts of the GED test they still need to pass.”

“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.”
