The GED test includes four independent modules (subtests) in Literacy, Math, Science, and Social Studies.
You can take one (or more) of the subtests at a time. Your results stand for a 2-year time frame from the first registration.

NO online GED test
Online GED testing is NOT possible. If you see websites that tell a different story, you can be sure they are false. Documents that are obtained over the internet are worthless. You can be sure they will not be accepted by schools and employers! Here is also a link to all U.S. GED programs.
Adjusted GED passing score
The passing score for each one of the four subtests was lowered from 150 to 145 a few years ago because research had shown that the passing score was set at a too high level when the new GED exam was introduced. See also our GED news pages. For detailed information on GED testing (such as preparation options, qualification criteria, passing score, GED.com and MyGED, the four testing areas, and more, please check out GED testing in Wisconsin.
