MOULTRIE, GA (WALB) -

 Area technical colleges encourage GEDstudents to finish their GED exams before big changes to the testing kick in next year.     

GED Testing Service will unveil a new assessment in January.  The new version will be computer-based and will cost more to take.    

Moultrie Tech is working to get as many people as possible to take the current test this month.

"We have added lots of extra free GED classes in all of our counties, and we've added more testing dates so we can get more people in by the end of December , we've also given away over $5,000 in scholarships to help students test by the end of December," said Jana Wiggins of MTC.       

Spots are still available but are filling up quickly.   If you've started taking the GED assessment, you must finish it before the end of the year, or you'll have to start over from the beginning on the new version.
