Letters to the editor: Deadline looms for GED, HSED tests

5:36 PM, Aug. 20, 2013  |  Comments

Those students who have already taken one or more of the tests to acquire a GED or HSED are encouraged to resume study.

Because the tests are updated every ten years, if they are not completed by December 2013 the candidates who have begun the tests must start over. As of last October, more than 43,000 candidates in our state need to finish this year.

To resume testing, either in Oshkosh or Appleton, call (920) 236-6142 (Oshkosh) or (920) 735-2444 (Appleton) or visit www.fvtc.edu.

The writing test deadline for Fox Valley Technical College is Dec. 5, 2013; other tests must be completed by Dec. 13, 2013.

The public needs to be reminded that there are thousands of candidates in our area who have begun testing, The GED/HSED tests were never intended to replace high school education; however, students completing the tests have given themselves a spring board to employment and/or further education. Should you believe these tests are easy, go to the Web or library, and try sample tests items.

Help these students complete their goal; contact ones you know, or spread the word.
