WHAT’S ON THE GED TEST?

The GED test has four content areas and takes roughly seven and a half hours. The Reasoning Through Language Arts test is 150 minutes long and is broken down into three sections: Section 1 (35 minutes) tests all content. Section 2 (45 minutes) is the Extended Response portion of the test. The Mathematical Reasoning takes 115 minutes; Social Studies: 70 minutes; Science: 90 minutes. The test can be taken one subject at a time on different days. To pass the GED test, you will need to score a minimum of 145 out of 200 on each of the four subjects. This means you need less than half of the questions correct to pass. There are three score levels you can earn on the GED test. GED Passing Score (145-164), GED College Ready (165-174), and GED College Ready + Credit (175-200). You can retake the GED test, but each state has different retake rules, so be sure to check your state’s policies. You can request a copy of your transcripts by following the directions here.
HOW TO PREPARE

WHERE TO TAKE THE GED TEST

The GED test must be taken at an official GED Testing Center. You can locate the one closest to you below. You do not need a Social Security Number to take the GED, but will need some form of government issued photo identification (driver’s license, passport, or state issued ID). GED requirements vary from state to state. The GED Testing Service suggests the following GED requirements for you to take the test: You are not enrolled in high school, and you have not graduated from high school, and you are at least age 16*, and you meet state, provincial, or territorial requirements regarding age, residency, and the length of time since leaving school. If you are considering leaving high school, the GED Testing Service recommends that you first meet with your high school counselor to talk seriously about your decision and the level of academic skill needed to pass the GED tests. *Some states require GED test takers to be at least 18 years of age.
WHERE TO TAKE GED TEST

WHICH TEST TO TAKE: GED, HISET OR TASC?

There are three nationally recognized high school equivalency exams: the GED® test, HiSET® exam and TASC test. Every state offers at least one of these exams; some states offer two or all three. If your state offers more than one exam, you may be able to choose which one to take. Check with your local testing center to see which exams they offer.
WHICH TEST

CAN THE GED TEST BE TAKEN ONLINE?

NO! You must go to an official testing center to take the test. Even though the GED® test and all other high school equivalency tests can be taken on a computer, they cannot be taken online from your home. The HiSET® exam and the TASC test offer paper-based option as well, but these tests cannot be mailed to you. Taking a GED test is like getting your driver’s license. There are different ways to prepare for a driver’s test including taking practice tests online. When you are ready, you need to schedule an appointment and go to the DMV to take your driving tests. When you arrive, a DMV employee checks your ID to verify your identify and after you pass, the DMV issues you a license. The high school equivalency tests works the same way. You can study and take a practice test online, but you must present a government issued photo ID to an official testing center employee in order to receive an authentic high school equivalency certificate from your state. Most states do not require that you are a U.S. citizen to take the high school equivalency tests. Beware of websites that claim to give GED tests or high school diplomas online. They are illegal in over 20 states. Don’t put your future in jeopardy.
WHERE TO TEST

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

The average cost of the complete GED® test is $120, or $30 per test. The HiSET® exam average cost is $10 per subtest; the TASC test average cost is $54 plus state and testing fees if. However, each state has different guidelines and some subsidize the cost. Check to see what your state requirements are.
