The best way to make sure you pass the Montana GED test is to be prepared. If you think you’re ready for the test, or if you want to know what to study, you should take a GED practice test.

Montana GED Testing Eligibility

To take the GED test in Montana you must be at least 16 years old. You must not be enrolled in a public or private high school, and you must not already have a high school diploma or high school equivalency diploma.

If you are 16, you will need a Waiver Application form with documentation that shows you, your school’s officials, and your parent or guardian all think the GED is in your best interest. You’ll also need an official letter from an Adult Basic Education Director showing that you have been taking GED classes and are prepared for the test, and an official letter from an employer or college that states the need for your GED diploma.

If you are 17 or 18, you will need an official withdrawal slip or other documentation that you’ve been out of school for at least 90 days. Or, you can get a letter from the head of your school or district documenting how you qualify to take the GED exam.

Don’t take the Montana GED test unless you’re prepared. You can pass, but if you’re like most people, you’ll need some brush-up and to get familiar with the test. Find out about GED online classes.

Montana GED: College Eligibility

More than 60 percent of GED test-takers plan to go on to college. The GED exam can help you get there. Ninety-eight percent of colleges and universities in the U.S. accept the GED credential, though some colleges require additional tests, such as the SAT or the ACE. Check with the admissions offices of the colleges you’re interested in for their requirements. Beware of online high school degrees that colleges won’t accept.

Montana GED Retesting

If you took the Montana GED test and did not pass, you don’t have to take the whole test again, just the parts you did not pass. Montana has a 30 to 60 day waiting period to retest, and you must take all five MT GED tests before you retest. Before you test again, it’s a good idea to go back and study, to make sure that you’re prepared. The fee to retest in Montana is $14 for the GED writing test and $7 for the other GED subject tests. If you have passed the GED test and need higher scores for college or a job, you may be able to retest with permission from the state GED administrator.
