The Four GED Tests

Go to GED testing in Illinois for qualification details. The GED (General Education Development) exam has four tests on these subject fields: Literacy, Math, Social Studies, and Science.

GED Essay Topics and Samples

The section Language Writing of the old GED exam format was embodied in the other four tests because most multiple-choice questions are gone and students now must answer questions in a sort of essay style which allows perfectly well for the assessment of their writing skills. HiSET (High School Equivalency Test) and TASC (Test Assessing Secondary Completion) come with individual writing and reading subtests, so five in total.
