Starting in January 2014, there’s going to be a new version of the GED, and you’ll only be able to take the test on line. The Englewood Sun reports anyone who’s taken the current 2002 GED Test Series has to finish the series by Dec. 2013. Scores from the 2002 Series will not be combined with scores for the new assessment. If you don’t finish the 2002 series by December of this year, then you’ll have to meet the requirements of the new test starting Jan. 1, 2014.
