The national GED Testing Service replaced the current five-part test with a four-part series that is considered more rigorous and a better indicator of students’ readiness for college and careers. Those who did not complete or pass all five portions before the deadline will have to start over again with the new version of the test. That means not only with they have to retake the tests, but also have to repay. The High School Equivalency Test/GED is only available at official testing centers, and the new tests will be offered only on a computer. The entire test costs approximately $120, which is $30 per test. Tests can be paid for online with a credit card.
