HARRISONBURG, Va. (WHSV) -- If you are looking to finish your GED test, you may want to hurry as there are changes coming in January.
The new focus will be to provide people with the skills needed to go to college and other higher education institutions.
The new GED test will more than double in cost, from $58 to $120.
Those at Massanutten Technical Center said the practice tests will now cost money.
Sandy Rinker, the assistant director of adult programming at the center, said she knows a lot of people who might struggle with the new timed computer based test.
"They were older individuals who didn't grow up with computers. They might use them, but they don't have the skills that are going to be required to be successful." said Rinker.
Rinker also said those who haven't finished taking the current test by December will have to start all over again with the new test.
