In 2014, the GED will be changing. Any tests taken before January, 2014 will not count towards the new test, according to the Massachusetts Department of Education. You will have to start over in 2014 and take the new test to work towards your GED.
Cape Cod Community College has announced on its website:
The last day to register to take the current paper based GED Test is October 17, 2013. If you plan to take the GED Test for the first time in November 2013 or December 2013, you will need to register for either of these tests by October 17, 2013.
Anyone interested in taking the GED test should contact the GED Testing Center at (508) 362-2131 x4450 or x4678 for the next available registration date. In order to register for the test, or to retest, you must come in person to the GED Testing Center, Grossman Commons Building, room 206D. You need to bring all of the following items with you when you come into the office to register for the test:
- a current Massachusetts photo ID with your name, date of birth and signature (i.e., driver's license, permit, or a passport);
- $65 in cash (in the exact amount) or a bank check/money order for $65 made payable to Cape Cod Community College. We do not accept personal checks or credits cards.
- your social security number;
- if you are 16 or 17, you need to bring an official letter of withdrawal from the last school you attended, on the school's letterhead stating that you are no longer enrolled. A parent or guardian must accompany you to sign the application.
Please note, that if you do not have all the required documentation, we can not register you for the test. Also, requests for special testing accommodations require a personal interview prior to registration.
For those who are retesting, the cost for each retest is $17.Source: Cape Cod Community College
