GED Certificates Changes in 2014

Posted: Updated:

NBCRightNow.com - Across the state and nation, adults are racing to earn their GED high school equivalency certificates before the year ends or start all over again with tougher, computerized tests next year.

The process to get the certificate, a vital badge of achievement for those who never earned a diploma, is going through a major overhaul which happens about once every 10 years. Students who fail to take and pass all five parts of the old GED test by the end of this year will have to start fresh with the new version in 2014.

The new GED test must be taken on a computer and will no longer be offered on paper.

The price of the GED tests will also be increasing in 2014.
