GED Testing (Pearson Vue)
Important information regarding GED testing for current and future GED students, please read:
Join the 2002 Series Closeout Campaign
For 70 years, adult educators and GED Testing Service have worked together to provide a bridge of opportunity for adult learners without a high school diploma. With the current version of the GED® test expiring in 2013, we need to work closely to notify adult learners about the change and how it could affect them.
When the 2002 Series GED® Test expires, any incomplete scores will expire too. Test-takers who pass some but not all of the 2002 Series GED® Test will have to start over. Join the 2002 Series Closeout Campaign and tell adult learners to finish the GED® test by the end of 2013.
