GED test format changed

A change in the General Educational Development test format means that those who have not passed all five exams must do so by December or risk losing their progress.

In a statement yesterday, a spokesperson for the Adult Education School said that the current version of the five-part test will expire at the end of the year.

“The current GED test contains five parts,” the spokesperson said. “Reading, social studies, science, math and writing, which can be taken separately but all must be passed to receive the high school credential.

“GED test takers who have started the 2002 series GED Test, but have not finished and passed ever section have until the last GED sitting in December 2013 to do so.

“Otherwise the scores will expire and they will have to start the test over again with the new 2014 GED test.”

The new test will be delivered only on computer, and offered only at Bermuda College.

For more information, contact the Adult Education School at 292-5809 or e-mail info@aes.edu.bm.
