In this post, I talk about the changes in the GED that became effective in 2014.

Most significant changes: Computer-based, Affordability, Non-transferable credits, Difficulty.

In most states, the General Education Development (GED) examination was changed in 2014 and learners who have not completed the full examination by the end of that year, did see their scores not transferable anymore.

Roughly once every 10 years, the GED exam is updated because it is a high school equivalency test. That implies that the GED test-takers must meet up with the identical educative specifications as high school graduates would. Therefore it is a natural fact that the GED is changing according to high school curricula. Also, GED study materials need to change and many websites also upgraded their practice tests. So far, the website Covcell GED Prep is one of the best courses for GED preparation and they offer also great lesson plans!

In 2002 we saw the (2nd) latest update of the GED examination, and until 2014, there were a lot of people who were engaged in the 2002 GED exam version but hadn’t completed the test yet. They really needed to get themselves together and complete the examination before the end of that year, as their test scores would not be valid anymore after December 2013.
