THE NEW 2014 GED TEST
Some very large changes are taking effect for the GED on January 2, 2014. These changes are really so large that GED assessment facilities are motivating everyone to conclude when possible.
For those who haven’t finished the test by December 31st of 2013, it may take a lot more time to fully prepare for the new test in 2014.
Will the content change drastically from the current 2002 Series GED Test?
The content of the 2014 GED test does differ from the 2002 GED Test.
How much time will the New GED test take?
The GED test will be about 7 hours long. These are the subjects:
- Reasoning through Language Arts – 150 minutes (with 10-minute break)
- Mathematical Reasoning – 90 minutes
- Science – 90 minutes
- Social Studies – 90 minutes
Is keyboarding speed an issue?
Yes and No. Students taking the GED with good typing skills can have “in theory” more time to change and further add to their answers. The time given is adequate for all students. We at Las Vegas GED will use our computer lab to practice similar tests and better your overall typing speed.
Will there still be multiple versions (forms) of each subject test?
Yes, multiple equivalent forms of the test will be given to test-takers to ensure that test overall security is sustained and to offer multiple testing opportunities to test-takers who possibly may not pass on their first try.
Can students take the same form of the test over again?
There will be 3 forms of the test to make sure that a student does not take the same form twice.
*Students can re-test on the same form after 60 days of the last test.
What if I took the GED test 2013 but didn’t finish?
If the 2013 version wasn’t completed by students by the end of 2013, they’ll have to take the 2014 version.
So, it is time to prepare. It is time to study. It is time to pass the New 2014 GED Test.
