Did the GED change recently? It seems harder! Some of my friends said the GED was easy!
Yes, the GED changed at the beginning of 2014 and is harder. Before, the process was easier and had a shorter time frame for studying and taking the tests. However, we still have participants succeeding in getting their GED, and we can help you get the tools you need to succeed!
