Current GED test expires soon

A new version of the GED test will roll out on Jan. 2, 2014. The current version of GED test will expire at the end of this year.

Johnston Community College students who have started taking the current version of the test need to complete and pass all five parts of the current exam before the end of the year, otherwise their scores will expire, according to Jessica Rieger, director of basic skills at JCC.

The new GED test is computer based and adheres to new educational standards.

“The GED test opens doors to college, better jobs, and the satisfaction of earning a high-school credential,” Rieger said. “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.”

JCC is an official GED testing location and also offers GED preparation classes at the Cleveland Center as well as on the main campus in Smithfield, Johnston County Workforce Development Center, the Kenly Center, Benson Town Hall, and Johnston County Industries.
