The current version of the GED® test will expire at the end of 2013.
The 2002 Series GED® test will be replaced with the new 2014 GED® test on January 2, 2014.
Those who have taken the 2002 Series GED® test, but not passed all five parts, have until the end of 2013 to pass the complete series and receive their high school credential. If this does not happen by the end of 2013, test-takers will lose any passing scores and will have to start over with the new 2014 GED test series in order to receive their high school credential. In addition, paper-based testing will no longer be available in 2014. Test delivery for the new 2014 GED® test will only be available through computer-based testing.
“The GED® test opens doors to college, better jobs, the respect adults deserve and the satisfaction of earning a high school credential,” said Pam Blundell, State GED Administrator at the Oklahoma State Department of Education. “We want to be sure that everyone is aware of this deadline. GED test-takers must act now to finish and pass before the current test expires.”
“Support is available, right here in Oklahoma,” Blundell said. “We can help adult learners get prepared to take the parts of the GED® test they still need to pass. We want you to succeed!”

“To anyone who has already started the GED test, your future is calling. By passing the GED test, you can answer that call,” said Randy Trask, President and CEO of GED Testing Service. “You owe it to yourself. Don’t miss the chance to turn one small step into your next big opportunity in life.”
The GED test has opened doors to better jobs and college programs for more than 18 million graduates since 1942. Last year nearly 800,000 adults sat for the GED test, which is accepted by virtually all U.S. colleges and employers.
