For weeks, Gail Feliciant has been trying to book a General Educational Development (GED) test but hasn’t heard back from schedulers.

The 62-year-old from Burlington, Ont., said she’s seeking the GED to get the certificate — an equivalent to a high school diploma — to gain more opportunity to work before retirement age. 

She said she registered before the Jan. 31 deadline and still has hope she’ll be able to schedule it before March 31, the deadline set by province, but there isn’t much time left. 

Pearson Vue GED Testing Service, the company behind the test, is ending service in Canada after this month.
