Texas Tech ISD is ready to accommodate impending changes to the GED test.

The General Educational Development Testing Service has announced that the current version of the GED test will expire at the end of 2013.

Tech warns that if test-takers have started but not completed all the GED tests, the change will erase their progress.

Those who have taken but not passed all five parts of the 2002 Series GED test have until the end of 2013 to pass, or will need to start again in 2013 to receive their high school credential.

Texas Tech University Independent School District offers GED testing on the second Saturday of each month at the TTUISD GED Testing Center through June 2013.

From June through November 2013, TTUISD will offer tests on two Saturdays each month, and test-takers have until the Tuesday before their exam to register for the test.

“The GED test opens doors to college, better jobs, the respect adults deserve, and the satisfaction of earning a high school credential,” said Ethel Russell, chief examining officer of TTUISD GED Testing Center. “We want to be sure everyone is aware of this deadline. GED test-takers must act now to finish and pass before the current test expires.”
