The four GED tests

The GED program is managed by the American Council on Education (ACE) together with publishing company Pearson and states administer the now four-section examination. The four test fields are Science, Math, Social Studies, and Literacy. Each section is timed, and the entire group of four tests will take you around 7.5 hours to complete, but you can take one test (or module) at a time when you feel sufficiently prepared. No need any longer to take everything in a row, and your test results are valid for two years! Visit GED in North Dakota to learn if you qualify.
