Current version of GED test to expire

Fort Cobb, OK – August 30, 2013 – Caddo Kiowa Technology Center announced today that the current version of the GED test will expire at the end of 2013. The current version, known as 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 or they will need to start over again in 2014 with the new GED test in order to receive their high school credential.

“The GED test opens doors to college, better jobs, the respect adults deserve, and the satisfaction of earning a high school credential,” said Brad Shaw, GED instructor. “So 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.”

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. As the creator of the official GED test, GED Testing Service has a responsibility to ensure that the program continues to be a reliable and valuable pathway to a better life for the millions of adults without a high school credential.

“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.”

He must have a minimum of 50 on his ASVAB to even be coendisred. College credits would work on accredited schools, such as University of Phoenix or University of Maryland just to name a few. But, the Marine Corps limits such entrance, unless he has a really good reason as to why he dropped out of High School. The recruiter may ask him to write a statement as to why he went with the GED route. This would help the Commanding Officer understand his intent.Work with the recruiter and try to knock out some college courses to show that he is serious about joining us.
