Oct 02, 2012 -- 4:50am

New changes to the test for getting your General Equivalency Diploma are making getting your GED a little tougher.

Carol Coffey, the Chief Regional GED Examiner at the Adult Learning Center, says the new test will focus on preparing students for college and career-readiness, and is based on the same Standards of Learning used to evaluate students statewide.

It's also more expansive, going up from $60 to $120. 

Coffey urges anyone considering getting their GED to do so now.

If the current GED coursework is notr completerd before December 31st of this year, applicants will have to redo everything.
