OC offers GED testing

PECOS, February 26, 2001 - The Odessa College Testing Center is doubling the number of monthly examination dates for the GED _ General Educational Development _ Test in an effort to aid students to complete all five of the test's segments before a new, revised GED Test is introduced in 2002.
Pre-2002 test segment scores will not be accepted in the 2002-series GED Test, according to OC Testing Center coordinator Rosie Aguilar.
"For students who have already taken segments of the test, we want to provide as many opportunities as possible for them to finish this year and earn their GED diploma by December 2001," said Aguilar. "For those who don't finish, they will have to start all over again in 2002."
She urges students to contact the Testing Center at 335-6620 for dates, times and test segments offered, plus information regarding fees and other requirements. Aguilar also advises that Testing Center staff are available to answer questions about study options and college preparation.
The GED Test certifies 12th grade ability in social studies, math, science, reading and writing skills.
