Current Test Takers Must Complete All Parts of Exam by Dec. 31, 2013

HARRISBURG, Pa., Nov. 5, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The state Department of Education reminds Pennsylvanians that the current version of the GED exam will expire on Dec. 31, 2013. It will be replaced with the new 2014 Series GED test beginning Jan. 2, 2014.

Those who have begun the 2002 Series GED test but have not completed the five modules have until Dec. 31, 2013, to successfully pass each section. 

Those who do not successfully complete all five parts by Dec. 31 will be required to restart in 2014 with the new GED test in order to receive their high school credential. 

Partial scores from the current exam cannot be carried over to the new 2014 test.

Available in both paper- and computer-based format, the current version of the exam can be taken at approved testing centers across the state.

The new test will contain four parts and will only be available in the computer-based format.

Paper-based exams will be available in limited cases where an individual requires testing accommodations.
