GED exam offered in Bonham March 20

The GED Exam will be offered in Bonham on March 20, with reservations available by calling the Grayson College Testing Center on March 18 at 903-463-8724. Seating is limited, and the first 15 callers will be given reservations. Pre-registration is required.

A GED candidate must be a resident of Texas, must be officially withdrawn from school, and must not have received a high school diploma from an accredited high school in the U.S.

Examinees will report to the TEAM Center at 806 W. 16th Street in Bonham at 7:45 a.m. Examinees must bring a valid government-issued photo identification (Texas driver’s license, Department of Public Safety ID card, passport, military ID card), Social Security card (if they have a Social Security number), and $65 exact cash. Seventeen year-old candidates must provide additional forms that are available from the Grayson College Testing Center. Testing will last all day, from 8 a.m. until 6 p.m. with a short break for lunch. Examinees should bring a sack lunch and beverage.

Examinees will receive official GED scores directly from the Texas Education Agency about three weeks after testing.

GC Testing Center Coordinator Donna McKinney says major changes are coming. “The GED Testing Service will issue a new series of GED tests in January 2014. Candidates who have not completed their GED testing on the 2002 series of GED tests should try to complete their testing in 2012 or early 2013,” said McKinney. She warns students, “Do not wait until the last few months of 2013. The testing volume may be high, and you might not be able to get a seat during the last few months of 2013.”
