Increase your GED test score quickly

Sometimes just a few points decide if you pass or fail the GED test.

  • Having a poor GED test-taking technique can cost you your diploma.
  • Don’t allow this to happen to you!
  • Learn how to increase your GED score by preparing with the Covcel GED Prep Course.

Check how Covcel can help you.

The GED (General Education Development) exam has four subtests in math, science, literacy, and social studies.

You can take the GED subtests one at a time and you have two years to complete the computer-formatted GED exam.

Online GED testing is NOT possible. You must appear at an official state-approved GED testing site to sit for the tests in person.

GED Essay Topics and Example

Can I take the GED exam online?

No, the GED tests must be taken at specific GED testing sites! You can take one (or more) of the four tests at the moment you feel all set to do so (though completion must be achieved within two years), and you only need to pay for what you take. You will find plenty of websites that tell you that they proved online GED testing, but these sites are fraud. The GED exam is just NOT offered over the internet, and the ‘certificates’ these scam artists issue are worthless! The GED diploma is recognized as the equivalency to a high school diploma by government agencies, employers, and schools.
