Important Information: Did You Hear?
Starting in 2014, there will be a new GED® test. The current version of the GED® test is expiring at the end of 2013 and your scores will expire, too, if you don't finish and pass the test by then. Finish the test now so you won't have to re-take the part you've already passed.
