WASHINGTON (KFVS) -

It has been announced that thee “Second Shot” GED testing offer will be extended to adult learners through August 31.

“We created the ‘Second Shot’ campaign earlier this year because we saw that adults were passing at higher rates and finishing faster on computer than on paper,” said Nicole Chestang, executive vice president at GED Testing Service. “We are excited to extend this offer to help test-takers get one step closer to better-paying jobs and college training programs.”

According to GED Testing Services, this offer provides a second shot for a population that often becomes discouraged if they do not pass east test subject on the first try. Through August 31, 2013, any adult who chooses to begin their GED test on computer will receive one free retake if they fail. In addition, adults who began their GED test on paper are eligible to receive a voucher if they live in a state where computer- and paper-based test scores can be combined.

“Extending the offer also allows adult learners in large states that have recently launched GED testing on computer, such as California and Texas, more time to take advantage of this program,” said Chestang.

For adults interested in taking the GED test on computer or to learn more about the “Second Shot” offer, visit www.GEDtestingservice.com.
