What is the GED?
The GED (General Educational Development) diploma is the equivalent of a high school diploma. If individuals didn’t finish their high school education, they may take the GED exam, and upon successful completion obtain a GED diploma. Usually, states have their own specific GED age and other prerequisite criteria before applicants can enroll in a GED program and take the GED exam.
Most post-secondary schools require that applicants have an H.S. or GED diploma/certificate. The GED certificate is also required to be able to apply for and receive financial aid at institutions of higher education. Many technical colleges who provide GED prep classes may as well offer special incentives for GED graduates. The GED passing score on each subtest is 145 out of 200 points.
Can I take one test at a time?
Yes, you can. The new GED exam allows you to take one test at a time, no need to take all four test at the same time. You have the freedom to take each test at that time when you feel all set for that part of the GED exam, as long as you complete the entire battery within a two-year period. Online GED testing is not possible, but online preparation is fine.
Take a look at the free online GED video program that is available on this website.
For all information on the GED program go to GED.com. For registration and scheduling your tests, you create your account at MyGED. Here you also can find a lot of information about job options, market trends, and descriptions of academic programs and school profiles.
This is the best place to be guided through the process that will result in your GED diploma. The GED tests are taken on a computer only and you must go online for registration and schedule your tests.
Go online to GED.com to start this process. You will need a current email and a major credit/debit card to be able to apply. If that’s a problem, don’t worry. You can get a pre-paid voucher as well at most testing sites.
GED passing score
The GED passing score was 150 on a 100-200 scale. Two years after the new test introduction, however, the score was adjusted to 145 as it appeared to have been set too high initially. For Honors scores, College Credit scores.
The new GED exam comprises 4 content area tests that are $140 in total, or $35 each. The tests are available in English and Spanish. You are allowed a specific amount of time to complete the tests. Literacy: 150 minutes; Math: 115 minutes; Science: 90 minutes; and Social Studies: 70 minutes. First, you register at GED.com and set up your account at MyGED, then you can schedule your tests, and everything is done online.
You can take and pay for one subtest at the moment you feel ready though completion must be achieved within two years. If you can find a testing center that can accommodate you for all four tests, that’s fine, but most testing centers are not open enough hours to schedule all four tests in one day. You can find more availability for testing if you schedule one or two tests. Applicants can take the same test three times without delay, but thereafter is a waiting period of 60 days before you can try again. All accommodations are arranged via GED Testing Services, and you can find all necessary information at GED.com.
