The GED® exam is for adults who did not complete high school and gives them the opportunity to acquire an equivalent degree.

The assessment measures proficiency at a level similar to that of graduating high school students.

The GED is fully computerized and consists of four separate subtests in

  • Language Arts
  • Social studies
  • Math
  • Science

You can take the four GED subtests (modules) separately. No need to complete the GED battery in one take.

Online GED testing was, until recently, no option. You needed to show up at an official Minnesota GED test center and take the four subtests in person. This has changed with the arrival of the online proctored GED testing option. Read more below.

All across North America, the GED diploma is recognized in the same way as a conventional HS degree.

Online GED Testing Introduced

You could, until recently, not take the GED test over the Internet. To earn a GED, you had to appear personally at an official Minnesota GED test center and deal with the four GED tests face-to-face. Now, all of this has changed with the introduction of an online GED test-taking option. More information can be found here: ‘Online GED testing.’
