Get your GED now! Big changes in store for 2014

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA -

The new test is coming! That's the message from the testing service that says the new GED, designed to align with the Common Core Curriculum, is scheduled to be offered in January.

With a focus on reasoning and analyzing, the test is intended to be a better indicator of a student's college and career readiness.  

When the new version of the GED is launched in January of 2014, students who have not completed and passed the current version exams will be starting over again.

Students who do not successfully complete all five parts by the end of 2013 will be required to start over again in 2014 with the new GED test in order to receive their high school credential.

Officials say partial scores from the current exam cannot be carried over to the new 2014 test.
