This post lists all GED® prep classes and testing sites in the Arlington, Virginia region. The GED test offers adults who didn’t graduate high school another opportunity to acquire an equivalent credential.
GED testing can be done online and at certified Virginia testing facilities.
The GED exam measures academic proficiency at a level that may also be expected of a graduating HS senior.
There are four computer-based GED subtests (modules) in Math, Science, Social Studies, and Literacy.
The GED tests may be taken one at a time. There is no requirement to complete the four tests in one take.
Until recently, there was never an online GED test-taking option. You were required to come, in person, to a state-designated Virginia GED test center.
This has now changed, however, with the launch of the online proctored GED exam. To learn more, check the information at the bottom of this post.

GED passing score
The passing score on each of the four modules is 145. Scoring is measured on a 100-200 scale. So you need to score 580 points or more overall to earn your high school equivalency credential. Scoring is as follows:
Passing score: 145-164
College-Ready score: 165-174
College Ready + Credit: 175-200 points
You can take one or more of the subtests at a time if you wish.
Launching online GED testing
It used to be that sitting for the GED exam via the internet was no option. If you were looking to get hold of your Virginia GED diploma, you were required to show up personally at a state-approved Virginia GED testing facility.
This has now changed, however, with the launch of a new online proctored option to sit for the four GED modules from your home. An online proctor monitors if your testing occurs in accordance with the regulations. To learn all about this interesting development, visit The introduction of online GED testing.
