This post lists all GED prep facilities and testing sites in the Queens area. New York State is using the GED assessment for its high school equivalency testing program.
The GED exam offers adults that didn’t graduate high school the chance to obtain an equivalent degree.
The GED® (General Education Development) exam includes four subtests in Math, Science, Language Arts (Reading and Writing combined), and Social Studies.
You have the option to take the four GED subtests one at a time. There’s no requirement to take it all in one session.
From 2014 through 2021, New York State used the TASC exam for its high school equivalency testing program but that was discontinued. Earlier TASC passing scores also count toward your GED!
The GED exam is entirely computer-based and must be taken at state-approved testing centers in New York. The state doesn’t offer an online proctored GED testing option (yet).
New York is one of only four states that offer the high school equivalency exam at no cost to its residents.
