Did you know? There will be multiple pathways for a State of New Jersey State Issue High School Diploma – click here for more information.

The State of NJ has announced that as of August 17, 2015, candidates will no longer be allowed to combine test scores from the three different state vendors, GED, HiSet, and TASC.  If you have already started testing in more than one test, you will be able to finish any of the tests you’ve started and combine those scores.  However, anyone who is starting an assessment as of August 17, 2015, can only pass by completing all sections of that one vendor’s test.    If you have already started one test, please be sure to tell your Testing Center staff that you have already started testing so they can help you clarify your eligibility to test.

Important Information about the GED

As of January 1, 2014, the GED transitioned to a new form of the test. After that date, any tests marked as “incomplete” or “non-passed” are void, and candidates will have to take the entire test over again, not just the sections not passed or not yet taken.

The GED Testing Service website has additional information.
