GED Classes Dothan, Alabama

Listed here are all GED® prep locations and test centers in the Dothan region.

Alabama uses the computer-based GED exam for the state’s high school equivalency (HSE) program.

The GED (General Education Development) program is especially for adults who never obtained a high school diploma.

This way, they have the chance to earn a credential that is recognized as equivalent to a high school diploma by employers and colleges.

The GED exam assesses knowledge at a level comparable to that of graduating high school students.

The exam has four individual subtests in Literacy, Social Studies, Math, and Science that must be completed in maximally two years.

Online GED testing is NOT possible. You need to show up at an official Alabama GED testing center.

GED Essay Tips and Topics

The four GED tests

For the entire Alabama GED exam (4 test subjects) you will have about 7.5 hours, but you are allowed to take each of the four tests at the time that you feel well prepared to take that part. No need to do it all in one take; you have a two-year period to complete it all. For eligibility requirements visit GED testing criteria in Alabama.

The allotted time is divided as follows: Language Arts – including a 10 min. break – 150 minutes; Math: 115 minutes; Science: 90 minutes; and Social Studies: 70 minutes. The new GED test is totally “digitalized”, meaning you have to take the test on a computer. Check also information about online GED prep programs, click here to read how it works.

The passing score

The GED exam scales from 100 to 200 and the passing score standard for high school equivalency was set at 150 points. It was decided, though, to lower this score to 145 points as it was demonstrated that the initial requirement was set a little too high. Averaging your scores is not allowed, so a minimum score of 580 is required overall. If you want to learn more, go to this page. Check also this website’s totally free online GED prep classes and practice tests.
