BROOKLYN - New York is getting rid of the old GED high school equivalency test and replacing it with a more challenging exam, starting in January.

New York's Department of Education says the new exam will get increasingly difficult each year. It will still feature five sections on reading, writing, math, social studies and science, but will now phase in computer-based testing.

The new test is being put together by publisher McGraw-Hill.
