For 70 years, adult educators and GED Testing Service have worked together to provide a bridge of opportunity for adult learners without a high school diploma. With the current version of the GED® test expiring in 2013, adult learners need to know about the change and how it could affect them. When the 2002 Series GED® Test expires, any incomplete scores will expire too. Test-takers who pass some but not all of the 2002 Series GED® Test will have to start over. Join the 2002 Series Closeout Campaign and tell adult learners to finish the GED® test by the end of 2013. Finishing the GED® test will assist you to open doors to college, better jobs, and the respect they deserve.
