ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - A coming revamp of tests for adults seeking a high school diploma equivalent has many scrambling to complete their test work for fear of having to start over.

The General Educational Development diploma program is getting an update come January. The St. Cloud Times reported Thursday that it means adults hoping to obtain the certificate must earn it by year's end or start with a new, more rigorous computerized test. In the St. Cloud area, there are more than 9,500 adults without a high school diploma.

Officials are expecting a rush of people trying to complete their GED to avoid losing ground. In 2014, the GED tests are being aligned to a new set of standards in English language arts and math. The tests were last updated in 2002.
