Now is the time to complete your GED

By Lori Dugan

Thatcher, AZ—The GED (General Equivalency Degree) Testing Service is releasing a new version of the GED test on January 1, 2014. Test-takers, who are currently in the process of completing the battery of GED tests, must complete the current exam series by December 31, 2013. Candidates who do not complete the current series will have to start the GED over again in 2014. The cost to take the test is $80.

Students interested in completing the GED test should: Call the EAC Adult Education department at (928) 428-6260 if you need a refresher class in the subject(s) you did not pass. If you are unsure what subjects you did not pass, call EAC’s evaluation technician, Jerri Lukens, at (928) 428-8491.

Then, call Lukens to setup an appointment to register for the test, which will be administered according to the following schedule:

April 27, 2013, from 8 a.m.-3 p.m.

May 15, 16, 2013, from 5-9 p.m.

May 25, 2013, 8 a.m.-3 p.m.

June 4, 5, 2013, 8 a.m.-12 p.m.

June 12, 13, 2013, 5-9 p.m.

June 29, 2013, 8 a.m.-3 p.m.

July 10, 11, 2013, 5-9 p.m.

July 27, 2013, 8 a.m.-3 p.m.

August 14, 15, 2013, 5-9 p.m.

August 31, 2013, 8 a.m.-3 p.m.

September 11, 12, 2013, 5-9 p.m.

September 28, 2013, 8 a.m.-3 p.m.

October 1, 2, 2013, 8 a.m.-12 p.m.

October 9, 10, 2013, 5-9 p.m.

“Please do not delay,” says Lukens. “Study and test as soon as possible, I expect numerous last-minute testers toward the end of 2013, and I may not be able to test them all.”

The changes that will occur to the test in 2014 are minimal computer and keyboarding skills; paper-and-pencil testing will not be available; tests will be more difficult and challenging in terms of context knowledge in the five testing areas; and the cost will increase to approximately $150.

For more information contact Lukens at 928-428-8491.
