FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Kentuckians who are close to completing their GED are being urged to finish before the end of next year.
That's the final date for completing the current version of the GED, which is being replaced Jan. 2, 2014.
Those who have not passed all five portions of the high school-equivalency test will have to begin again with the new test, called the 2014 GED.
Kentucky Adult Education says in a news release that more than 16,000 Kentuckians have passed parts of the current GED test but have not finished.
