A new GED test will be starting in 2014, and an area instructor encourages all who are considering to take the test to do so now.
“This test is going to be much harder and more expensive,” West Central Ohio ABLE-GED Program instructor Candice Dicke said. “We would like the people in Wapakoneta to be aware that the last time you will be able to take the old test will be the summer of 2013.”
The current GED test is multiple choice and essay questions. It consists of five parts, and once a part is passed it will not have to be taken again.
