Beginning Jan. 1, 2014, GED Testing Service will release a new version of the General Educational Development test. This new version will be administered solely on the computer. All paper testing will be eliminated as of Jan. 1, 2014.

Any applicants who have taken the GED between 2002 and Dec. 31, 2013, must complete all five sections of the GED test prior to Dec. 31, 2013. Individuals who do not complete the full GED battery by Dec. 31, 2013, will have to start over on January 1, 2014 with the new GED computer-based test. Previous GED scores will not transfer over to the 2014 testing series.

GED Testing Service will also charge a base rate fee for each of the content areas on the new 2014 GED test. The 2014 test will consist of four content areas. These content areas include literacy, mathematics, social studies, and science. The base fee for each of the content areas will be $24. Authorized GED testing centers may add additional fees to the base rate to cover expenses.

Applicants who have not completed the 2002 GED testing series are strongly encouraged to contact the Hemet Adult School to register for the next available at GED test. The Hemet Adult School also offers GED preparation classes to help applicants prepare and pass the 2002 GED testing series. These services are provided for a nominal fee.
