Jones County students working toward obtaining their GEDs have two important deadlines ahead.

Adult education lead teacher Marilyn Norfleet said, after June 25, the only way GED tests can be taken are on computer. No more paper tests will be accepted at the Jones County site. All tests will have to be completed on computers, and those tests have to be taken in Bibb County.

Norfleet said there is nothing she can do about the switch to computer testing, but she is working with officials of the adult education program in an attempt to allow students to take the computer tests in Jones County.

The current version of the GED test is expiring at the end of 2013, and starting in 2014, there will be a new test. The big news is all portions of the tests that have been taken so far will expire at the end of the year.

“Students need to finish the test now so they don’t have to retake the parts they have already passed,” she said.
