Those looking to take the GED Test after the New Year will see some changes.

The 2002 Series GED Test expires the last day of 2013 and the next-generation test will be launched on the 1st of the new year.

Any incomplete scores will also expire – meaning test-takers who passed only some of the test will have to start over.

One of the significant changes for test-takers is pricing – the test will now cost $120 as compared to $55 for the 2002 Series pencil-and-paper test.

Also, the test will only be delivered electronically, with no written option.

Content-wise, the new test will be aligned with Common Core standards and other prevailing state standards.
