The GED® subtests can be taken one at a time and in any preferred order.
This Texas GED practice test resembles the real GED test, and all questions have answer choices in several formats.
Select the best answer option on each question, and when you have finished the test, there will be explanations and feedback. Let’s get started.

Students that take GED practice tests will discover which GED subject areas need most of their attention, and they’ll additionally become familiar with the GED testing format. The HiSET exam is no longer offered in Texas.
The GED exam can be taken online and at state-approved Texas testing centers. To be eligible to take the GED exam online, candidates must score in the “green” (likely to pass) zone of the GED Ready® test.
One Test At A Time
The GED test is a modular exam meaning that candidates have the choice to sit for one or more GED subtests at a time. They don’t have to prepare for and take it all at once.
The Texas Certificate of High School Equivalency (TxCHSE) is equivalent to a conventional high school degree. The credential is recognized and accepted across North America in lieu of a high school diploma by government agencies, colleges and universities, and employers.
The GED passing score is 145 (out of 200), and this counts for each of the four GED subtests. So the total score cannot be less than 580, and there’s no averaging.
To qualify for the Texas high school equivalency exam, candidates have to be residents of Texas, not already hold a secondary education degree, have government-issued photo IDs, and be at least 18 years old.
Candidates 16 and 17 years old may qualify for GED testing as well if they are officially withdrawn from school, have parental approval, and meet some more requirements.
Candidates can also not be registered for any other educational program, and in Texas, the GED test is available in English and Spanish.
In Texas, the four GED subtests will set you back $145 for the entire GED battery or $36,25 per individual subtest. Taken online, the subtests are $42.50 apiece.
In Texas, there’s no requirement to first partake in a GED prep course or attend adult education classes, or reach satisfactory scores on a qualification test prior to taking the GED or HiSET exam.
However, candidates looking to take the GED exam online must first attain passing scores (in the GED “Green” zone) on the GED Ready® practice test.
The GED exam is administered fully on a computer. Paper-based GED testing can only be available to candidates with a disability that prevents them from taking the exam on a computer.
Is the Texas GED test multiple-choice?
Many GED questions are still in the multiple-choice format, but you’ll also see questions in different formats such as fill-in-the-blank, short answer, and draggable answer options. The exam also asks you to produce a 5 to 6-paragraph-long essay.
Do I need to take a practice test before taking the GED exam in Texas?
No, Texas doesn’t require GED candidates to first attain satisfactory scores on a practice test or attend a prep course if they take the exam at a testing center. Online GED testers are required to first reach “green” scores on the GED Ready official practice test. The GED exam is quite challenging, so becoming perfectly prepared is really needed for success.
What is the GED passing score in Texas?
There are four GED modules, and on each individual module, you’ll have to attain at least a score of 145. The four GED modules are measured on a scale from 100 to 200. Averaging is no option.
