Current GED test expires December 2013

The current version of the GED test, known as the 2002 Series test, will expire at the end of 2013, and will be replaced with the new 2014 GED test as of January 2, 2014. Those who have taken the 2002 Series test, but have not passed all five parts, must successfully complete it by this date; otherwise, in order to receive their high school credentials, they will have to start over with the 2014 test. The Rappahannock Community College Adult Education Program strongly encourages area residents who did not finish high school to take this time limit into account.

In addition to the satisfaction of earning a high school credential, says Tonia Varner, program manager of RCC’s Adult Education/GED program, “the GED test opens doors to college and better jobs. So we want to be sure that everyone is aware of the deadline.” She continues, “Support is available right here in the Northern Neck. We can help adult learners prepare to take the parts of the GED test that they still need to pass. We are even offering free ‘Super Saturdays’ throughout 2013, allowing students to receive instruction and re-take the parts of the test that they did not pass earlier, all in one day.”
