Rowan-Cabarrus offers free GED practice tests

Rowan-Cabarrus Community College is giving away free GED practice tests to all students who register before Oct. 3.
Students who take GED Ready can see for free if they’re ready to pass the GED test, the skills they need to work on to pass and receive a personalized study plan detailing pages and chapters to study in their study books.
“The GED Ready test is supposed to be the same difficulty as the actual GED test, but just half as long with half as many questions,” said Gary Connor, director of the college’s Pre-College Studies Department
The free practice tests will be available at both the college’s north campus in Salisbury and the college’s south campus in Concord. Tests can be arranged for the following days:
• Sept. 26, from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.
• Sept. 27, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.
• Oct. 1, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
• Oct. 3, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Students can also learn about classes and other resources to help them prepare for the GED test. To learn more or to book an appointment to take the free GED Ready practice test, call 704-216-3510.
Additionally, as part of the college’s efforts to keep costs as low as possible, Rowan-Cabarrus has been offering students who enroll in the GED program the option to apply for funding that would cover the cost of the test fees.
“I don’t want students to abandon their GED efforts because of a cost factor,” Connor said.
Rowan-Cabarrus provides both instruction and resource materials to students preparing for the GED at no cost. Classes are scheduled on the North and South campuses and at a variety of community locations for convenience and access.
Students work at their own pace, so the time to complete a section of the GED may take weeks or months based upon the individual readiness for the test.
