This page lists all GED® prep class locations and testing sites in the Salisbury region.
Maryland uses the computer-formatted GED test for High School Equivalency (HSE) testing.
The HSE exam gives adults who did not graduate high school the chance to earn an equivalent degree.
GED testing is done via four independent subtests in Science, Literacy, Social Studies, and Math.
There’s no need to take all four GED subtests at the same time. Test scores count for two years from your first registration.

Maryland GED price
The most recent version of the GED test (2014 Series) can only be taken on a computer, paper-and-pencil testing is over. GED testing is not possible online. You must show up in person at one Maryland’s 17 state-approved testing centers. Please be aware that online obtained GED diplomas will certainly not be accepted by schools and employers.
Maryland is subsidizing the cost of GED testing partly, and you will only have to pay $11.25 per test (module). The full exam costs $45.00, including two free re-tests per year. To become optimally prepared, you can take advantage of this video program, a great way to get all set effectively.
Who is the GED for?
The General Education Development (GED ) test is created to give adults who don’t possess a high school diploma one more opportunity to earn a diploma that is across America regarded and accepted just like a standard high school diploma. When applicants have passed all four parts of the GED test, they have demonstrated that they possess knowledge and skills at the level of high school graduates. The passing requirements are set in a way that at least 40 percent of high school graduates would not pass the test.
The GED exam is quite challenging so, if you don’t have a high school diploma and would like to go the GED track, make sure you’ll get at prepared as possible. You cannot take the tests online, you must go to an official, state-approved, GED testing site and proper ID is required!
GED qualification requirements
Applicants who want to take the Maryland GED exam are only eligible if they are at least 16 years old. Those who are 16 or 17 must meet further strict regulations that can be checked at a GED test center near you. Most prep facilities will also be able to inform you properly. In Maryland, you need to be a state resident, you cannot already hold a secondary education degree, and not be engaged in any other school program.
There is one online location where you can do everything related to GED testing, the website GED.com. Here you can discover how to sign up for the four tests that can be taken one by one at the moment you feel sufficiently prepared. Your scores will stand for two years. At GED.com you can see how you can pay for the tests, and how you can modify your testing appointments without getting penalized, and you’ll find college information, workplace options and developments, and so on. You must create your personal account at the portal MyGED, and all is explained very clearly. If you take just one sub-test, you only pay for that part.
The GED passing score
The GED test is measured on a 100-200 points scale, and you must reach at least the 145 mark on each of the four tests. This minimally required score was recently (early 2016) adjusted downward from 150 because upon rolling out the new GED program in 2014, the bar was apparently raised too high.
