If you are planning on taking the GED test, or still have parts of the test you need to pass, be aware there are changes coming at the end of the year.

The current version of the GED will expire at the end of 2013 and be replaced with a new 2014 GED test. Those who have taken the current version, known as the 2002 Series GED test, but not passed all five parts have until the end of this year to pass or they will need to start over again in 2014 with the new GED.

Bridgeport ISD offers the GED test each month (except in January, June or July).

“The GED test opens doors to college, better jobs, the respect adults deserve, and the satisfaction of earning a high school credential,” said Robert Sivley, chief examiner for Bridgeport ISD. “So we want to be sure that everyone is aware of this deadline. GED test-takers must act now to finish and pass before the current test expires.”

Prep classes are offered at Weatherford College each Monday and Wednesday at 5:30 p.m. in Room 220.
