Last day for GED test in Montana set for Dec. 21st

Posted: Updated:

The last date for GED testing in Montana has been set for December 21st before the state moves to a new high school equivalency exam.

In March of this year the Board of Public Education supported a recommendation from Superintendent Denise Juneau to enter into a contract with the Educational Testing Service to develop a new Montana high school equivalency exam called HiSET replacing the GED. Beginning January 2nd of next year test takers will be able to combine individual GED subject test scores from 2002 through 2013 with HiSET scores if they are unable to complete all five sections of the GED this year. The HiSET exam will cost $50 and up to two retests in same calendar year are included at no additional cost. There is both a computer based exam and a paper and pencil exam that will be administered at testing locations ensuring a smooth transition into the new HiSET exam.
